The following graphics from the report describe the key elements of the vision:


Six megatrends across a wide range of disciplines:


From cells to cities- an extended definition of health and medicine:


Sensors in the body, on the body, around the body in homes, building and smart cities collecting actionable data across the wider landscape that can be used predictively and preventatively:


Beyond the static record of the EHR — progressively accurate predictive models of health outcomes will become possible:


Three core elements of the future healthcare system — the person at the centre of health and wellbeing conversations; a digital health coach providing “always on” advice and a link with healthcare professionals; and a radically different healthcare ecosystem:


A progressive move from expensive hospital treatment towards the community and eventually the individual:


A powerful value proposition — both financially and in quality of life: increasing the proportion of life spent free from disease, better identification of risks, more efficient management of long term conditions and reduction of time lived in full time care:


A stepped description of how the vision would be implemented, moving from a siloed healthcare system focused on fixing disease and a patient who submits him/herself to the system when illness strikes; to an integrated system — focused on wellness which wraps itself around a fully empowered individual in control of managing their health and supported when things go wrong:
