Next giant leap
Digital channels are playing an increasingly large part in everyday life.

New information and communication technologies have facilitated the emergence of rapid, dynamic interactions, driven by the active participation of users who generate content and, more recently, services. Semantic web and Internet of Things are two of many examples of how digital is co-driving some of the key transformations in health and medicine.
