Healthcare & Industry 4.0
Industry 4.0 centers around consumers and what we need is agility, whereas healthcare 4.0 centers around patients, and the outcome we need is stability.
A schematic diagram representing Industry 4.0 and Healthcare 4.0 is shown below:
The 4.0 Toolset & Care Methods
The convergence of multiple technologies makes these new care models possible. Improving efficiency and decreasing waste.
Introducing Care 4.0: An Integrated Care Paradigm Built on Industry 4.0 Capabilities
Western developed health and care policy is shifting from a patriarchal medical model to a co-managed and integrated approach. Meanwhile, the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) is transforming manufacturing in line with the digital consumer revolution. Digital health and care initiatives are beginning to use some of the same capabilities to optimize healthcare provision.
Disruptive, Deceptive & Exponential
Reminder: These changes will be disruptive and more importantly deceptive.
The Catalyst for Digital Transformation
Data Platforms are the catalyst for this digital transformation, thereby enabling care management in a cohesive network with the Internet of Things at its center and data analysis through Artificial Intelligence.
Forces of change
Twenty years from now, cancer and diabetes could join polio as defeated diseases. We expect prevention and early diagnoses will be central to the future of health. The onset of disease, in some cases, could be delayed or eliminated altogether. Sophisticated tests and tools could mean most diagnoses (and care) take place at home.
