How it works

Technology Opportunity

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.
