Impact of Technological Innovation

The research mission at academic health centers are relying more on changing, and in some cases more publicly available, innovative techniques and technology. 

The convergence of medicine and machine will clearly impact the biomedical research enterprise. Factors include:

  • Falling price of genomic sequencing
  • Dense data clouds
  • Smartphone data acquisition
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Nanotechnology

As a result, healthcare is ripe for upending transformation as we enter an era of rapidly evolving digital-based technologies that are fundamentally changing what it means to be part of a profession.
