Life is rapidly moving from a paper- driven world to a digital one, where nearly every kind of information is stored on a computer, or in the cloud. When applying for a bank account, visiting the doctor or using a smart fitness app to analyse progress, we are providing data at every point. Data is everywhere and is being combined in new and diverse ways to shape how we see and experience the world.
Most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic ignited a new need for data and technology to be harnessed in the healthcare domain. Across the globe, all kinds of new and emerging technologies are combining to bring about a digital healthcare transformation, a worldwide change, that fundamentally has never been seen before. This radical acceleration highlights the potential to provide a more patient-centred delivery of care, using digital technology that can reshape and enhance our healthcare systems.
