Editorial

No matter how old we are or what our life or surroundings are like, the health sector concerns all of us. From paediatrics to geriatrics, medicine examines all of our ailments, chronic diseases or reoccurring aches and pains. Potential patients or ‘healthy sick people’, doctors’ appointments are part of our lives and public health measures help us push back the limits of ageing even further. Over the last 60 years, our life expectancy has increased by 14 years on average. A benefit which doesn’t come without drawbacks as it is progressively changing the prevalence of reasons for unhealthiness and mortality. As of now, chronic diseases account for 70% of deaths.

Many different things have contributed to this evolution. To name a few : the quality of treatment, living conditions, medical advances and new technology which has developed phenomenally over the last decade. The health sector in particular has seen numerous applications growing. Telemedicine and connected devices have greatly changed medical practices and the relationship between practitioners and their patients. Another ensuing revolution: the arrival of patient version 2.0. With digital technology and the development of e-health, patients are becoming more and more a demanding and active participant in their own health.

In light of these new needs, adapted and efficient IT systems must be implemented for healthcare workers and patients. However, whenever we talk about exchanging information, data transfer is never far behind. If Big Data is sparking a debate today it is because, apart from just confidentiality, collecting medical data requires specific technical and human handling in healthcare facilities. With this white paper, we will see how necessary it is to manage patient data from start to finish – especially in the biomedical field. Therefore, before integrating connected devices into our daily lives, let’s first of all concentrate on the patient’s journey throughout the hospital.
