dc.description Lessons from the failures and the fruits of success, enjoyed by the business world, may not be irrelevant for exploration and/or adaptation by healthcare organizations, despite the irreconcilable differences that exist in the dynamics of mechanical versus biological and social systems. The current challenges in healthcare compel a fresh view of the organization, structure and function of the delivery and monitoring processes in healthcare, not only for the industrial world that may afford the increasing cost but for global healthcare services, in a manner accessible to, as well as feasible for, the billions who may afford only micro-payments! en
dc.description.abstract This paper represents an emerging view of personalized care and patient-centric systems approach. It integrates biomedical informatics and business services. A potentially innovative model may evolve from this convergence and may serve as a global template to reduce cost of service. The future of global healthcare may increasingly rely on “sense and then, respond” systems but excluding the instances of exception management, necessary for accidents and emergencies. Solutions suggested in this paper are neither complete nor a panacea but are elements that deserve inclusion in the delivery of healthcare that may combine a portfolio of approaches to suit the needs of the community. As a potential future direction to improve analytics in healthcare, the concept of molecular semantics is proposed. en
