Healthcare

Roughly every fifty years, healthcare experience significant disruptive changes leading to a health care revolution. The next revolution is now upon us. After decades as a technological laggard, the healthcare industry has entered the digital age. The enabling technology for this transformation fell into place over the past two decades with the emergence of massive, ubiquitous, and increasingly cheap processing power, and more recently, the widespread adoption of electronic health records. These trends — coupled with advances in analytic software, mobile technologies, sensors, and genomic sequencing — have made it possible to capture and analyze vast amounts of information about individual patients, populations, and the environments in which they live.  The medical technology field spans a multi-billion dollar market, Entrepreneurial innovation and corporate competitiveness has long been viewed as the key to new discoveries and solutions.
