  1.    Intelligent Automation – do things differently, do different things and create new jobs, products and services in healthcare;
  2.    The liquid workforce – today’s digital demands call for highly agile healthcare skillsets;
  3.     Platform economy – ecosystems are the new bedrock of digital healthcare;
  4.     Predictable disruption – digital ecosystems blur healthcare’s boundaries in a foreseeable way;
