Digital Health Applications and Hospitals of the Future

Download to read offline

The National Healthcare Expo 2019 Conference was held in late November in Milton Keynes. In my presentation in the eHealth Track (presentation and video links included in this article), I outlined 3 points to think about when looking at the future of Digital Technologies in Healthcare and Medicine.
The digital technologies which will have the biggest impact on global health will not have been designed by or for medical professionals
Consumer technologies, sometime referred to as “general” technologies are being applied across almost all sectors of business and society for purposes which were not originally envisaged or intended. The health sector is a good example in which all of the technologies shown below are now being applied for health and well-being :-
• Smartphones
• Fitness Trackers
• Whatsapp and WeChat
• Virtual Reality Headsets
• Panoramic Cameras
• Artificial Intelligence
• Sensors
With the possible exception of fitness trackers, none of these technologies were developed by or for medical professionals. There are some profound implications, not only for the future of healthcare but also for the roles and responsibilities of health professionals and citizens. The graph below shows how digital technologies for health are shifting from expensive, stand-alone, proprietary technologies to smart, connected, consumer technologies.
