Healthcare Value Chain 2016

Healthcare Value Chain
Value Chain for healthcare IT systems in 2016
Femi and I created these to describe the Healthcare value chain for 2016.

The first figure indicates the high level value chain and the area where the most value may be derived from an increase in technical capability.

The supporting requirements, functions and interactions are all indicated as subsequent capabilities.

Healthcare Step Function
Possible Technology Step Function for Healthcare

The second figure shows a possible future step function that causes a reset in the value chain and what those potential Healthcare technology areas would become.

In the event that this future becomes reality, where Population Health Management resides in the top figure today, Targeted or Precision (Personalized) Medicine will become the operational mode in the future.

Network Function Virtualization - Value Chain 2016



Value Chain for NFV in 2016
I'm using this to describe the relative position of functions in the value chain for Network Function Virtualization (NFV).

Where the customer is consuming Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) there are a large number of supporting functions underlying the delivery of the VNFs.

This is intended to show the relationship between those elements that would perform part of a MANO Functional Block in the VIM (Virtualized Infrastructure Manager).

Docker Host Networking Modes

I created this in an attempt to show the Docker Host Networking modes all aligned on the same model, mostly because I couldn't find anything quite like this representation.

If you want to provide any feedback on the models or descriptions I would love to hear back from you.
