Healthcare in the future will be very much dependent on technology. It is the quality which is provided by data. It is provided by automated interpretation of that data, automated monitoring of our own practice, which then feeds us and the patient with the information which we need to make the right decision."

The information that is available is so much larger that it will definitely improve the way we are dealing with patients. But on the other hand, it makes it all much more complex. For that, technical solutions are definitely needed just to create the enormous stream of information canalized in a way that it is dealable with."
