  • New Care Delivery

    • 22/10/2020

    The COVID-19 pandemic has been an accelerator for a profound paradigmatic shift that started several years ago, from a hospital-centred and centralised acute care system towards a patient-centred and distributed network of multiple actors playing new roles. Autonomy of patients is leveraged, telemedicine and telemonitoring is increasingly used by care professionals, assisting technologies and tech-driven...

  • COVID-19 Care Continuum

    • 11/05/2020

    Think back to January 1, 2020. Can you even remember what the outlook was for a new decade in your area of healthcare?

  • Is There an Alternative to Costly Tech For Future Healthcare?

My impression is that we have a lot of new modalities entering the market like tele-monitoring,...

  • Unblock the Chain

    • 21/01/2019

    Blockchain. What diverse reactions the mention of this technology gets both within and without the healthcare setting.

  • 2084

    • 25/01/2018

    In his groundbreaking novel ‘1984’, British writer George Orwell portrayed a futuristic world that could only be imagined at the time of its 1948 publication. With incisive foresight, even without its dystopian character, 1984 showed a society watched by an all-seeing eye that is evident in today’s data-driven digital world. Technology is not good, or bad by nature; it is the way we use it. With...
