Our vision encompasses a social revolution powered by the next generation of integrated preventative systems, enabled by digital technologies, gamification and open data.
Our vision is centred on four core premises: personal engagement, combining health and wellbeing, collective responsibility, and intelligent person-centred data services.
Personally-controlled medical record platforms will contribute to restore our personal responsibility towards healthy living, reduce healthcare costs and improve transparency and accountability, whilst helping to break information and knowledge silos.
Given that citizens are becoming active co-producers of healthcare information, open, inter-operable and scalable information platforms linking citizens, carers, and professional, can provide a new channel for enabling self-care.
With a growing wellbeing market and the emergence of on-line personal health records, healthcare information is starting to accumulate at much earlier stages.
This creates an opportunity to reach up stream in health promotion and preventive activities.
Relying on intelligent data services and open data standards, and enabled by opening the garden-wall approach of current personally-controlled medical record platforms, independent software application developers would be able to envision new health data services linked to emergent demands from proactive consumers of pre-primary care (health + wellbeing) services.
A federated approach to data management, enabled by mobile technologies, would allow proactive personal engagement and collective responsibility, and help improve cost-effectiveness of healthcare services.
In addition, gamification of medical applications have the potential to improve compliance and the formation of healthy habits. Intelligent data repositories and services will help not only integrate electronic health information, but also enable evidence-based ‘collective’ decision making amongst carers and clinical providers and unleash new knowledge and discoveries.
