“Based on a PwC report, the following statement sums things up well: ‘2016 will be a year of firsts for players within healthcare as the industry adapts to the main forces driving the new health economy: The rise of consumerism, the focus on value, downward pressure on costs, technological innovation and the impact of new entrants.’

“Of the 10 trends listed, those I find most noteworthy, as a scientist, in their contributions to healthcare improvement include: 1) Technology gives more power to consumers, and 2) High-tech databases.”
