Digital Health is becoming the new frontier of the Digital Transformation due to its impact on social basis. To understand the importance of this field or research and business, consider big part of the investment put in place by pharma and healthcare companies all over the world: Johnson & Johnson built the technological incubator, GE Healthcare set up a brand new branch called Digital and more and more example could follow. Just to give you an idea of the impact, the FDA published a page (Mobile Health Apps Interactive Tool) to give precise advice on how to develop new technologies following the necessary regulatory aspect.
All these new applications would not been able to have this kind of technological increasing without the necessary basis: Cloud Computing, Big Data, Wearable Computing are the most important, without these “new tech” any possible development could be sometimes so expensive and some other probably technically impossible.
Last but not least the epidemiological studies which could be put in place via the big data analysis should have an incredible impact in terms of public safety control, to enhance efficiency in the healthcare, avoiding costs and losing time for the patients / operators, having as final results to save economical resource within the public health sector which is under enormous pressure since years.
