Revolutionizing Health Care: Using New Technologies to Address Age-Old Challenges

June 19, 2013 | State of the Market Report

Trends in aging populations, unsustainable health care costs, and emerging economies have long pointed to the urgency of improved approaches to health care. However, only over the past few years have technological advances – in areas from genomics to nanowire sensors – made it seem within reach. Fueled by the increased knowledge of fundamental disease mechanisms new solutions are emerging across the spectrum of indications as diverse as neurological disorders and rare infectious diseases. And yet, despite this increasing technological innovation, health care’s rigid regulatory structures and entrenched market channels are dictating a slower transition. As such, incumbents and new entrants alike are also exploring new applications – in consumerized health and wellness – as well as alternative business models, to commercialize these innovations across the health care market.
