Healthcare is undergoing a revolution and it is digital. Personal medicine is the future and consumers will be the ones who drive healthcare into the next phase. Imagine a health management practitioner not a doctor who tracks and manages your health before you get ill? Robots who perform surgery in remote places via a virtual doctor? Live Chat sessions with specialists and practitioners anytime of the day. Healthcare will not only get better, but will become more accessible and more affordable and everyone is invited to be part of the revolution.
