Why go digital?

 

The healthcare landscape has evolved to a consumer-centric approach, where patients interact with providers in new ways and have access to their own healthcare data. This shift is driven by the digital revolution in healthcare, incorporating big data, AI, genomic data, wearables, and remote sensors.

Digitalisation can optimise resource utilisation in healthcare systems, meeting the demands of aging populations and chronic illnesses. As society embraces digitalisation across industries, digital health’s significance will continue to grow, eventually becoming the norm.
