How data will help patients
Initially these platforms will help consumers manage chronic conditions such as asthma or diabetes.
As the pace of change accelerates and consumer expectations increase, platforms will enable the delivery of proactive, predictive care via intelligent and agile systems.
It won’t only be about managing disease; in the future, these platforms will help individuals maximize health across their lifespans.
Collaborating to converge
Companies from all industries can play a role in the formation of these high-touch platforms of care. Indeed, to be successful, health care’s incumbents - life sciences companies, payers, and providers – must partner with technology companies and new entrants to make the most of enabling technologies such as smaller, more powerful wearables, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics process automation.
Only by working together will it be possible to safely and quickly turn health data into actionable insights that result in improved health outcomes. And only by working together can companies develop systems that are truly consumer-centric.
Embracing this vision of convergence – and partnering with new stakeholders – is both an urgent need and a growing opportunity. The companies that collaborate to deliver solutions that prioritize consumer participation, personalization, and better health outcomes will be well positioned to create future value for their stakeholders – and themselves.
