Collecting lots of data isn't just about making more accurate Netflix recommendations.

 

Rather than just judge us on what we say in an eight minute consultation with our GPs, maybe they'll be able to pull up our health data and analyse it properly?


Scientists would be able to more easily identify the effects and side-effects of different treatments, and more quickly develop and bring new treatments to patients.


Of course - there is one awkwardly massive downside to this. Privacy concerns.

Digital Medicine Could Eradicate Hospitals | EE Times | Healthcare Analytics | Scoop.it

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Digital healthcare could someday make hospitals obsolete, says a leading cardiologist and medical researcher. That's perhaps the brightest of many big promises from the ongoing revolution in semiconductors speakers shared at an annual industry gala here.


Via JP DOUMENG
Andy Collett's insight:

Hospitals should be developing a 'transparent walls' strategy to extend care into community and home settings. Technology is an enabler but understanding the pathways (processes) and then embedding the change  in them, is essential to realise the benefit of the investment.
