Exhibition precis: Hospitals and doctors’ offices can be thought of as highly concentrated points of healthcare. And when a person has health concerns, those are the places to which he or she would naturally go – the places where healthcare happens.
However, the continued miniaturization of computers and other devices, combined with today’s pervasive access to data, is allowing the process of care to escape these concentrated points.
As it becomes easier for individuals to monitor aspects of their own health, care will cease to be something that has to happen entirely in highly designated and specialized areas. Rather than health being something that must be checked in on at a particular location, it will become a continuous process that happens all the time, in all the spaces you visit, with the devices that you use every day.
The Futurecare exhibition aims to illustrate just how technology is shaping everyday spaces into the future spaces of healthcare.
