As solutions like remote care are becoming the norm, 3D-printing disrupts the normal supply chain and even the number of life science studies on tools like artificial intelligence (A.I.) skyrocket, it’s become clear that we are not anticipating the digital health era; we are in the digital health era due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
First and foremost, it’s an era defined by a cultural transformation that will upend the traditional structure of healthcare. Clinical-grade sensors are available outside of the ivory towers of medicine; patients demand such tools so that they can become more proactive in managing their health and with their use; healthcare professionals revitalise the core values of medicine: empathy, attention and time. Healthcare authorities and institutions can further serve as guides for patients.
