Autonomous Healthcare Vision and Health Mobility

Healthcare on wheels


Imagine instead of you going to the hospital, what if the hospital goes to you? This speculative design concept is a provocation to current models of care delivery, disrupting the future of healthcare through design visioning.


The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed many long-standing shortfalls in our healthcare systems across the globe. A radically more efficient, accessible and affordable modes of care delivery is imperative to meet the challenges we will face in the future. 


This triggered us to speculate the evolution of society based on emerging societal and technological trends and its consequent impact on healthcare through a speculative vision on Autonomous Healthcare. Through five vignettes of new autonomous care delivery, we provoked thought leadership and encouraged adoption of new care delivery models with our industry stakeholders. One resulting example is the pilot of a Health Mobility Service Concept – now on the roads in Nagano, Japan. 
We believe that more dynamic and mobile solutions will pave the way forward for the industry to shape a better and more human healthcare landscape for future generations to come.
