Archived report. Medicine will change from its current reactive mode, in which doctors wait for people to get sick, to a mode that is far more preventive and rational and is known as P4 medicine, a system that is Predictive, Personalized, Preventive, and Participatory.

P4 medicine will have a big impact on many industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and insurance, as well as health care. Research will also have to change because diseases such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease, obesity and Alzheimer’s are so complex, the traditional approaches to studying them have had only marginal results. Powerful new systems approaches, individual measurements and computational technologies will transform our ability to deal with complexity and fashion new drugs and approaches for therapy and prevention.

Groundbreaking e-health and m-health projects are underway around the world, ranging from simple tools to monitor fitness, to important devices with potentially life-saving applications. Aged care services are at the forefront of developments.

The following report provides information on interesting e-health and m-health projects and initiatives from around the world. In a separate BuddeComm report we explore the reasons the world need to move towards a healthcare system which fully supports a future based on e-health, see Global Digital Economy - E-Health and M-Health - Insights, Stats and Analysis.
