Technology is rapidly evolving and reshaping our world in one of its most exciting and dramatic moments of transformation ever. Digitalization is a reality today and there is no way to avoid it.

The Healthcare ecosystem is changing, influenced by major innovations. Big Data & Advanced Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality and the Internet of Things are not futuristic science fiction but part of our reality. Within two to five years, a significant proportion of pharmaceuticals will create value through more than just drugs and medicinal products by integrating a digital ecosystem, generating “beyond the pill” complex solutions while shaping interactions among all stakeholders.

While some might consider that this may place people at a distance, healthcare players are using this opportunity to refine more humancentered business models, where patients are empowered by information, generating health insights so they can act directly as decision makers for their own health and well-being. These factors will facilitate the implementation of concepts such as health democratization and P4 Medicine (Predictive, Preventive, Personalized and Participatory Medicine). Essentially, individuals will live longer and in better health, enabled to manage their healthcare concerns while putting less strain on healthcare systems, lowering context costs and improving public health overall.

There is no doubt as to how beneficial and disruptive digital health might be for everyone, but making this happen is not that straightforward, and determining its intrinsic value is still a challenge.
