What Does the Future Hold for ePharma?

Pin It Now!
John Sharp from the eHealth blog recently covered an article from Read Write Web in which Google CEO Eric Schmidt talked about a future dominated by Chinese Language and social media content. Here are some key points that will have a direct effect on the pharma.

  • Five years from now the internet will be dominated by Chinese-language content.
  • Today's teenagers are the model of how the web will work in five years - they jump from app to app to app seamlessly.
  • Five years is a factor of ten in Moore's Law, meaning that computers will be capable of far more by that time than they are today.
Perhaps five years from now everyone will be running on mobile watch-sized computing devices. It will be interesting to see over the course of the next 5 years where technology will lead the pharma industry to.
