Going Beyond The Pill: The Importance Of Data

There have been major changes in healthcare policy, big advancements in technology, and a large proportion of the population is getting older. As a result, there is a need for better developments in resources, mobile applications, and assistance so there will not be a large gap between data and healthcare. The data that has been obtained will need to connect to the mobile devices we use.

The data that has been obtained by applications will need to be connected to create recommendations and advice that the patients and providers will be able to receive. For example, a patient who has diabetes can use a mobile application that will allow them to effectively manage their illness. When the patient uses the mobile application, the app will learn the patient’s patterns and habits.

We’re also moving toward applications that can notify the patient that they have missed a medication or an appointment and can alert them when their health is declining. An effective app will also be able to notify caregivers or family members with resources and goals to help improve the patient’s engagement and overall health outcomes.

It is important that pharma organizations are able to adapt to these emerging innovations so that they will not fall behind in delivering quality health care and resources to their end users. Going beyond the pill essentially comes down to harnessing technology and data in order to provide patients with the information and resources they need to take control of their health at all times.
