Scholarship Description: This PhD project will focus on investigating the impact of new disruptive methodologies in healthcare using high performance computing (HPC), internet of things, Big Data and cognitive computing on traditional business models of healthcare providers, industrial suppliers, and healthcare insurance companies. Traditional healthcare data are collected from sources such as hospital, radiology and laboratory information systems, electronic patient records, genetic information and population data. New healthcare implantable, wearable, and ambient sensing technologies combined with artificial intelligence and data mining techniques are projected to provide constant healthcare monitoring, computer-assisted therapy and early warning abilities at lower costs.  Mining individual medical records, collected monitored patient data, individual treatment results and genomic records are projected to deliver higher quality, lower cost patient-centric ‘precision healthcare’. Collective insurance reimbursement continue to play a major role in the current healthcare system, but as discretionary health spending continue to rise, new entrants are introducing new individual care delivery models based on those new technologies and disrupting the status quo of the traditional old health economy. So how will new and incumbent players readapt their business models to grow or defend their share of the fast-evolving health market and which new value propositions, based on those new technologies, will be developed for both patients and healthcare providers, that will contribute to improve healthcare quality and decrease the costs.
