We are living in a data revolution. A growing population of smartphone and tablet users, improved connectivity and availability of healthcare bio-sensors and wearables are giving both patient and clinician access to real- time healthcare data and information that has never before been possible.
Medical Health applications can range from basic: An app that compiles reports on calorie intake, to intermediate: An
inhaler with built in asthma sensor to measure air quality, to advanced: Portable devices that measure temperature, heart rate, blood oxygen levels, respiratory rate, ECG and blood pressure.
Putting the patient at the centre of their individual health eco-system and in control of how they use their data is massively important. So too, is proving how sharing their data will not only empower them as patients but also support new medical research, drug development and the wider health economy.
By 2025 the mHealth and Self-Monitoring technologies markets combined are projected to be worth £70billion. Wearable technologies will transform from fitness tools of the healthy, to valid, reliable and accessible accessories for everyone, even the sickest amongst us. If used in the right way, patients and their clinicians will have a complete medical profile, combined with real time information to support early diagnosis and a more convenient and personalised service..
However, technology and data alone is not enough. Data is only as useful as the insights that can be drawn from it. To obtain true value there is a need for data to become joined up, to collide with artificial and actual intelligence in order to create insights at scale.
Only then will we be able to influence patient behaviour, and sustain engagement outside of the traditional care settings.
