Abstract :

The technical developments over the past decadesâ??especially those in the past 10 yearsâ??along with a demographic shift have given rise to a new type of patient: The Modern Healthcare Consumer. When todayâ??s future patients can order books and other goods overnight, when they can watch virtually any movie from anywhere and when access to their personal, sensitive information (including their finances) is at their fingertips â?? then these consumers have expectations of their healthcare experience that most of todayâ??s healthcare systems delivery organizations are not ready to satisfy, let alone exceed. Combine this shift to consumerism with an exponential growth of treatment options, exploding healthcare cost, and a shift from sickness care to wellness care and itâ??s obvious to anyone, that new approaches to healthcare are needed. Just like technological advances in energy production and the extraction of natural resources have averted the long-predicted energy crisis, technological advances can also come to the rescue in healthcare. But with so many technical solutions available, which aspects of digital health can help keep this perfect storm at bay? This presentation examines the drivers behind the expectations of the New Healthcare Consumer and discusses which of the many digital health technologies can exceed the Modern Healthcare Consumerâ??s expectations, while improving health outcomes at a lower cost.
