A brief summary

Major problems to avoid

Small hospitals that don’t have the money to buy modern technology and qualified, specialist staff to manage it
Outdated mentalities like ‘big data doesn’t matter’,  ‘Doctor knows best’ and ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’
Smaller isolated hospitals and clinics, not closely related to Universities and committed to ongoing education

Positive things to seek out

Involving patients in their own data, with apps, smart devices and trials
Interest in social media and getting constant feedback from patients
Trials of home monitoring using home nursing services, robots, artificial intelligence and 24/7 monitoring
