Why you are the future of healthcare


Published on

On our way to redesign healthcare from curative to preventive we will encounter smart ways to tap into our biological code, we will be surrounded by invisible sensors like guardian angels, and we will be connected with coaching avatars. But smart technologies and the data they generate, are just a tool. When not trusted by the established care provider, when not integrated and available in a personal data platform, healthcare will only be pseudo modernized.

The real magic happens when these tools allow you to engage and change behavior. But even in a rapidly automating world, we can't automate empathy. Or can we?
