The upcoming decade – the Digital '20s – will see data at the core of healthcare transformation. Digital health is the convergence of digital technologies with health, healthcare, living, and society to enhance the efficiency of healthcare delivery and make care delivery more personalized and precise.
Data sources will continue to explode as patient generated data and machine data will increase as 5G technology is adopted. Leveraging data from across the patient journey will be critical to help manage the continued transformation towards value-based care.
