Connectivity between patients and physicians is changing rapidly due to big data, connected devices and telemedicine.

By 2020, 20 billion devices are expected to be in use, with China operating 5.1 billion of them. The global big data market is also expected to generate revenue of over $122 billion by 2025.

The world of health care is slowly shifting to personalized care, with a focus on the individual rather than the masses.

Big Data

Care is expected to become customized to best meet each individual’s needs, greatly enhancing the quality of health care. Care will be centered on the consumer, and electronic medical records are one source that will begin to drive this push forward.

Big data will allow for the compilation of a patient’s health history, the ability to transfer patient records in real time and allow physicians to correlate patient data and analyze regression rates to avoid premature releases when a patient is hospitalized.

Wearable Technology

Devices that allow individuals to track and share their health data with their physicians are on the rise. Apple’s latest Apple Watch and Philip’s prototype to aid those suffering from chronic illness are just two examples of wearable devices that will drive health care towards a brighter future.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine consultations are expected to triple over the next year. And Google’s recent integration into the art is sure to skyrocket that number. Remote diagnostic screening has already become common in some countries and markets, and telesurgery may be next to appear in the industry.

The following infographic displays the technologies that will most impact both consumers and clinicians over the next five to 15 years.
