We live in a time of great abundance and unparalleled possibilities fueled by exponential growth from the impact of technology. Our job at sparks & honey is to understand the accelerators, balancers and patterns that are driving exponential cultural change in the near term and foreseeable future.  Our team of cultural strategists and curators works with leading brands and thought leaders to apply these trends and use them as a catalyst for disruptive innovation.

We eat culture for breakfast in order to understand the value of emerging fringe signals, cultural shifts and explosive doubling patterns. While monitoring thousands of inputs and mapping and scoring them, we have identified 8 rapidly accelerating trends that will shape institutions, governments, businesses and everyday consumers.

We have consolidated these trends into short vignettes in order to share a curated snapshot of what will create either great opportunities or unexpected challenges. We will cover these trends over the next two months. This report covers Citizen Doctor. We hope you engage us in the debate and exploration on how these exponential trends will shape your business and the World. 

The discussion will also continue in our core social channels - , and

  • The first statement 'Healthcare is no longer a domain of specialists' is questionable. Nothing that is happening today suggests that specialists will be eliminated from healthcare. In fact if there is anything the healthcare industry is struggling with is that diseases are proving to be complex, there is a recognition that health care is a multi-dimensional challenge, and the notion that the individual will no longer need specialists is not only a questionable claim but unsubstantiated in any way. There is a lot of excitement in the industry alright. There was with the mapping of the genome too.

  • 6. The Rise of the Citizen Doctor Healthcare is no longer the domain of specialists. With the rise of digital health, - a move from writing scripts to prescribing apps and sensors, growing numbers of people are taking their health into their own hands. Since the tools and quantified data for healthy living are in everyone’s hands, citizen doctors are tracking their health in real time and heading off problems before they occur. The future of medicine is predictive, personalized, preventative and is moving from being episodic and reactive to continuous and proactive.

Healthcare through personalized microbial balancing will soon become a viable medical treatment as well. These advancement in conjunction with an abundance of “big data” medical records will come together to form highly customizable individual health plans. image source

  • 12. citizen doctor Better Health For The Bottom Billion: Mobile, personalized healthcare is also bringing previously inaccessible services to developing countries. The “Bottom Billion” is now getting access to healthcare that does not rely on existing systems. image source
  • 13. citizen doctor implications Switch Roles: Make the Consumer the Expert: As the tools to diagnose and track health become cheaper and easier to use (think: WebMD), empowered consumers will take over the role of doctor for much of the healthcare process. There will be a reversal, where consumer will be the expert, and the doctor will assume the role of the advisor. This will allow doctors to take on more patients (and virtual patients), which will put pressure on medical facilities to restructure. Likewise, brands must embrace the fact that consumers are the “experts” and the brand also fills an advisory role. Adopt an Uber-Individualized “Precision” Approach: Consumers are demanding increasingly more precise, tailored and personalized healthcare solutions. Detailed consumer data, human genome mapping, microbe mapping and advances in biology and technology are enabling this. Anticipate a shift in language in the health industry - as well as consumer marketing - from “personal” to “precision.” Consumers Will Expect Intuitive and Proactive Healthcare Programs: Flipping the traditional “episodic and reactive” mindset of healthcare on its head, continuously quantified and tracked health makes health and wellness something to nurture and maintain rather than responding to crisis (think: body as “tree” vs. body as “car”). Marketers will also be challenged to be pro-active, predictive and intuitive. There is an entrepreneurial opportunity to innovate and apply within the apps and sensors space. Additionally, we can expect the cost of managed health care to decrease, Job of the Future? Data-Driven Doctor Healthcare practitioners in the near future also need to be specialists in data analytics, and even data visualization to communicate with patients. Expect an industry of consultants to emerge who will train HCPs and offer out-sourced data interpretation, visualization and personalized action plans.
