We are already witnessing a dramatic loss of efficiency in the immune system. Doctors and patients often embrace new modes of treatment before their merits and weaknesses are fully understood.
Medicine is entering an age of democratization as power shifts from hospitals, doctors and other caregivers to patients, potentially leading to dramatic health care improvements.
Today, healthcare is one of the top economic and social problems across the globe.
Put simply, the problem comes down into two factors: accessibility and affordability.

Globally, there is an increasing aging population plagued with chronic diseases. These factors, combined with a focus on prevention and technological advances, pharmaceuticals and treatments, will undoubtedly cause demand for healthcare services.
For the first time we can digitize humans. We can remotely and continuously monitor each heart beat, moment-to-moment blood pressure readings, the rate and depth of breathing, body temperature, oxygen concentration in the blood, glucose, brain waves, activity, mood – all the things that make us tick. We can image any part of the body and do a three-dimensional reconstruction,
eventually leading to the capability of printing an organ. Or, we can use a miniature, handheld, high-resolution imaging device that rapidly captures critical information anywhere, such as the scene of a motor vehicle accident or a person’s home in response to a call of distress. We can determine all 6 billion letters (“life codes”) of a person’s genome sequence.
TeleHealth is a wide variety of solutions that enable healthcare providers to interact in real-time or in store-and-forward modalities with patients and/or clinicians at other locations
Home Health Monitoring provides patients with care in the comfort of their home, from a distance
Mobile Health solutions that make health information and medical records available on mobile devices can lead to more informed care and better productivity, and can also empower patients to take a larger role in managing their own treatment
TeleDermatology is the use of digital images sent by a primary care provider of a patient’s skin problem through mobile devices. The dermatologist receives the images and makes recommendations and sends that information back to the primary care physician, allowing the patient to have access to a dermatologist they did not have before.
