STL has long argued that healthcare is an attractive vertical for telcos – it is highly localised, starting from a comparatively low base in digitisation, and demand for healthcare is steadily rising. In short, it is a big and sustainable market, looking for local digitisation partners who will also be around for the long haul.
For telcos seeking to make a meaningful impact on the societies they operate in, supporting the development of digital health can be a highly rewarding strategy, not only financially, but also for employee satisfaction and customer recognition.
The big challenge is figuring out how and where to play in a highly complex environment. Our research includes analysis on how well telcos have succeeded with the above business models in the past, and where the opportunities are in the future.
