How to Prepare for the Future of Medicine

1. Whether you are a patient or a medical professional, follow the main trends and try to be up-to-date, using digital technologies ranging from message boards to mobile apps.

2. Constantly look for solutions to improve your practice as a medical professional or your health as a patient.

3. Embrace digital technologies in a comfortable way and use techniques that make your life easier and your work more efficient.

4. Look for examples and trends outside of medicine, as well.

5. Understand that evidence backed by massive data is needed for any uses of digital solutions in medicine.

6. Beware of hype in medicine. Strategically analyze trends and extrapolate to the future in a meaningful way.

7. Influence decision makers if your idea can make a change. Be bold and use social media channels to spread the word.

8. Remember that, no matter how important a role digital will play in our lives, the human touch is and will always be the key in the doctor–patient relationship.
