Since the introduction of ICT tools in healthcare, the new systems have mainly supported the existing workflows. We are entering now a new era where ICT innovations are modifying, with more depth, the core of the healthcare business. If Watson may be the flagship of this tendency, there are plenty of smaller innovations that are slowly changing the way medicine is performed. Innovation creates new opportunities, from patient empowerment to personalized medicine that may change forever the way healthcare system works.
