The Digital Health Society: Perspectives on Real, Predictive, and Preventive Care

Tutkimustuotos: Artikkeli kirjassa/konferenssijulkaisussaChapterScientific


In the near future, we will rely more on computers than humans to provide
health diagnoses. Computers will help us improve our health and find cures for disease we are suffering. We foresee a future in which the ubiquity of sensors and data related to your health as well as life habits will be stored, centralized, and compared, enabling the accurate prediction of the evolution of your health. To analyze this future, we look at the challenges and enablers in the digitalization of health-care delivery. Traditional health-care delivery is based on regular health-care checks and corrective actions based on physician opinion.
This paradigm is changing; patients are proactive users of their health-related information. We envision how and why machines will take control over medical decisions. Health-care delivery will become largely predictive and preventive, transforming societal institutions toward the digital health society.
