When was the last time you drove to your local bank to deposit a check? Or held a paper airline ticket in your hand? Technology has drastically transformed how we interact with businesses, but the healthcare industry has been slow to adapt … until now.
“If the difference between evolution and revolution is the speed of change, then healthcare is now in the mode of revolutionary change,” notes global business expert Harry Glorikian.
He points to the uptick in electronic storage of medical records, convenient online patient portals, and innovative applications of data to help pinpoint outbreaks and expose drug-resistant diseases. We have entered a rapidly evolving era of medicine that values data-driven approaches and prioritizes evidence-based care, and the best is yet to come, Glorikian predicts.
In MoneyBall Medicine: Thriving in the New Data-Driven Healthcare Market, Glorikian (along with award-winning healthcare writer Malorye Allison Branca) show through examples what a new data-driven healthcare system could look like when implemented on a global basis. The authors reveal where data and cutting-edge analytics are already advancing healthcare and creating new and evolving business opportunities. Data and technology are already impacting drug development, precision medicine, and how patients with rare diseases are diagnosed and treated. Digital devices and artificial intelligence are helping doctors do their jobs faster and with greater accuracy.
The book includes interviews with dozens of healthcare leaders, and describes the business challenges and opportunities arising for those working in one of the most vibrant sectors of the world’s economy. The authors map out many of the changes taking place, and describe how they are impacting everyone from patients to researchers to insurers, and outline some predictions for the healthcare industry in the years to come.
The author makes a compelling case for embracing technology and the use of data to revolutionize the healthcare system for the greater good of patients and healthcare professionals alike.
