The Internet of Me

Your healthcare, personalised

OVERVIEW

With the digitisation of medical records—and even everyday habits—new and individualised healthcare experiences are being born. Welcome to the era of personalised healthcare.

Much of the Internet’s appeal lies in the personal power it bestows: “My” newsfeed, “My” playlist, “My” health, “My” fitness, “My” electronic medical record…and the list goes on.

In the days ahead, even more meaningful and convenient individual health experiences await.

The Internet of Me really allows patients to get information that’s highly customised to who they are, what they’ve done, and what their preferences are, so the experience is driven by real context, not just a patient handout that everyone gets.

Today:

People are shopping for health insurance in online marketplaces, digitally tracking their fitness and diet, and receiving individualised health incentives from their employer. Doctors are starting to communicate with patients over email. Some clinics are screening patients to see how they react to certain medications based on their DNA.

Tomorrow:

Expect the ability to request a blanket or pain meds from your smartwatch, share healthcare information with all of your care providers in one click, receive a single streamlined and understandable bill for care, and get a real-time text alert that your blood pressure is too high. Health insurers will recommend personalised plan options, including some that offer savings for using a wearable device with intelligent analytics.

EXAMPLE

PhysIQ Platform

A device-agnostic predictive health analytics tool, PhysIQ creates a personalised baseline for an individual’s health by collecting data from a number of wearable devices or sensors. It then looks for any deviations from that baseline.

Personalisation is key. Unlike other platforms that compare user data against broader population averages, PhysIQ can be paired with most any device the user chooses and constantly weighs an individual’s readings against their norms.

This function makes PhysIQ much more effective in detecting any anomalies or other potential problems, so it can then alert healthcare providers if necessary.
