(The following is a short summary of a Huffington Post UK, Huffpost Tech Blog authored by Jeroen Tas, CEO of Philips Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services.)
"New information technologies, such as the Internet of Things and big data analytics, will create a more connected healthcare world, in which the patient experience is no longer fragmented and reliant on face-to-face care," suggests Jeroen Tas, CEO of Philips Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services.
Blogging for Huffington Post UK, Mr. Tas discusses how the "liberating promises of the digital age" can be realised in today's healthcare environment.
He contends that the innovative management of information from multiple sources can empower creation of a personalized, preventative treatment program.
The intent: "to give people the information they need to look after their own health and to get early warnings so that medical professionals can better care for their patients and choose the optimum moment for intervention."
