Innovation in Health: The Edge

Change in health can be slow and frustrating, especially as we stand in such a technological advanced era. The governance aspects of individualism matching national health systems and standardisation may often seem worlds apart. The vast number of specialties within health also challenge how to scale online communities to meet everyone’s need. So innovation to improve communication, access to health records and services are major factors. How to connect and engage across formal and informal health resources so patients are themselves experts and are empowered is an essential aspect of future transformation and innovation.
