Exploring the International Frontiers

While infectious diseases have long ranked among the biggest health challenges for people in developing nations, a confluence of factors has sparked a quiet epidemic of chronic illnesses previously associated with richer countries. This trend has been driven in part by the world’s growing elderly population, which is more prone to chronic disease. To counteract that, technology can play a role in preventing and better managing chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, chronic respiratory diseases and diabetes, which collectively rank as the leading causes of mortality in the world and represent 60 percent of all deaths. As smartphones, tablets and internet access become more widespread in regions worldwide, new resources will play an integral role in addressing the prevalence of chronic conditions.

How Messaging Will Emerge as the Backbone of Healthcare

KPCB’s Mary Meeker recently declared the latest internet trend: “Messaging will become the new mobile home screen.” With the success of messaging platforms such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, conversations are evolving from social to business-related. Leading verticals such as banking and travel are now leveraging these platforms and healthcare is next in line. With today’s modern messaging platforms, health providers will have unprecedented reach and the information shared will turn into actionable intelligence for health systems, who will use it to predict and prevent events (like hospitalizations or falls) that contribute disproportionately to the cost of care. Discover how messaging will ignite change in the industry by allowing health systems to leverage a resource that is ready, willing and able to vastly improve quality and lower costs.
