Abstract

Disruptive innovation in healthcare sector offers potential opportunities to developing countries like Nigeria, which are in urgent need of low-cost, efficient and sustainable healthcare solutions that are easily accessible to the masses. This article based on an exploratory study supports the idea that disruptive innovations in the digital health and telehealth combined with innovative business models and public-private sectors collaborations can help improve access to quality healthcare services for the lower-income and underreached and underserved communities of multiple emerging and developing economies. The evidences provided by a number of exploratory studies with thought leaders and industry experts seem to confirm an optimist scenario for the rapid expansion of more inclusive digital healthcare economic models in these economies. With a huge untapped growth potential.
