Literature Review: Digital problem for Healthcare

This “Ten Problems for Healthcare in the 2020s” booklet identifies ten relevant areas from very recent contributions put forward at academic level in the form journal articles, conference proceedings and students’ theses. Ten freely accessible internet references have been selected for each area and direct links are provided at the end of each chapter for own consultation. Our selected references do not intend to mirror ranking indexes nor establish novel classifications. On the contrary, they are meant to represent peer-reviewed, diverse and scientifically-sound case studies for vertical dissemination aimed at non-specialist readers. They will also be able to scoop even more references through the bibliography that is reported at the end of each selected reference.

Without further ado, these are the ten problems that we are going to introduce in this booklet:

  1. delivery,
  2. access,
  3. economics,
  4. digital,
  5. artificial intelligence,
  6. pharma,
  7. regulation,
  8. special needs,
  9. wellbeing,
  10. workforce.

Each problem has its own dedicated chapter made of an introductory section, a short presentation of the ten selected references and a conclusions section.

The final chapter of this booklet will report the conclusions from each chapter again in order to provide a complete executive summary.

CONCLUSIONS — Digital health is an umbrella term for information and communication technologies. There is significant potential for the application of Big Data to healthcare, but there are still some impediments to overcome. Easing the complexity of systems and extracting new knowledge from systems’ connectivity are the contributions of Information Systems- guided digital healthcare ecosystems. Hospitals face with many challenges nowadays and good scheduling is a fundamental part of the daily operation. Blockchain introduces the Health Information Exchange scheme that employs a trusted, decentralized database. There is strong evidence supporting online cognitive–behavioral therapy and more engaging programmes are now appearing so as to reduce user attrition. Technostress is more prevalent in healthcare professionals with a manager position than in other healthcare roles in general. Digital technologies, such as online healthcare portals, enable elderly people to live independently at home for a longer period of time. As digital health services become more widespread in Europe, a holistic, public health approach to the design of future health systems becomes highly relevant. While Singapore compares favorably by some measures, the Australian and Malaysian Digitally Enabled Healthcare Ecosystems are not as advanced as in the United States.
