Health Care: The digital revolution has been kicked into high gear
Not so long ago, creating tailor-made treatments for every individual would have been prohibitively expensive and challenging to say the least. However, driven by evolving patient expectations, breakthroughs in artificial intelligence and the Covid-19 pandemic, the digital revolution has been kicked into high gear. This has resulted in a fundamental conceptual shift regarding telemedicine – for patients and their doctors. Breakthroughs in data science and algorithms are making it increasingly possible for individuals to access health care, making universal healthcare a reality. With rapid technological advancement the way we access health care is being altered. Individuals who may not have been able to speak to a medical care practitioner – because of lack of insurance, mobility or time – can now receive basic healthcare. I refer to it as the democratization of healthcare.
