As an industry, healthcare is notoriously resistant to change, and when it comes to clinical information, this limitation is felt most acutely. It’s been the Achilles heel of the industry, but now real foundational change is taking place in the application of healthcare information.
It’s a vast, sweeping tide of innovation—medical product and clinical process innovation, finance and delivery model innovation, and stakeholder participation innovation—all based on information liquidity.
At the forefront of this pivot towards clinical knowledge sharing are mobile tools such as communicative biosensors, wearables, and nearables. Whether worn on the wrist, head, foot or body as a garment, these devices are being designed in every conceivable form factor, with convenience and utility in mind.
