We are witnessing the ongoing decentralization of medical care, and three intertwined technologies are enabling this. First, information technologies â?? storage, analysis and communication of medical data â?? have grown ever more powerful and cost-effective. Computational advances in healthcare are manifold and potent, appearing across the continuum of handheld devices through cloud resources. Second, smart medical devices enabled by embedded computation are poised to become ubiquitous in the clinic and home, allowing for both contextual monitoring and titration of care. Lastly, molecular diagnostics have rapidly progressed from slow and manual tasks for humans to automated, fast and data-rich instruments delivering effective, quantitative clinical insights. Such advanced medical devices and diagnostic systems are poised to create a tsunami of data, which will be managed, interpreted and mined via application and advancement of computers. This will in turn enable the next generation of devices and diagnostics. That self-perpetuating circle of enabling technologies is opening the door for huge benefits for both ill and healthy populations and is the inevitable outcome of applying modern electronics to the problems of medicine.
