Healthcare is changing. We – as consumers, rather than patients – need to manage health throughout our lives, rather than simply being treated at the point of illness. Following Prof Dame Sally Davies’s call for a gene testing revolution, Jaquie Finn discusses how digital health technology is shaping the future of healthcare.
Wearable sensors for the monitoring of digital biomarkers are one of the most exciting trends for the future of healthcare. Most of this excitement stems from the fact that clinical assessments of motor (primarily) and non-motor (to a lesser extent) functions are recorded using qualitative means and scales during clinical assessments. As a result, assessments can […]
The digital drug delivery ecosystem is set to continue expanding beyond fitness apps and connected drug delivery devices. Wearable technology for the monitoring of digital biomarkers will play a key role in this expansion and will set the direction for the future of digital health. Wearables can complement established treatment options and provide data and […]
The objects in our lives are changing, fast. They are getting smarter and our relationship with them has shifted. Last night I asked my phone – just by speaking to it – to set an alarm, which still amazes me. With new technological advancements like this, society is on the cusp of vast change. All […]
The use of digital biomarkers for the monitoring and understanding disease states is getting closer. Pharmaceutical companies and other stakeholders within the healthcare industry have realised that precision medicine extends far beyond a pill or a connected drug delivery device. At the same time, advances in sensing technologies, miniaturisation, data processing capabilities and wireless technologies […]
