The big trend that everybody is talking about is the combination of digital health into medical devices.The way we consume medicine in 10 years will not be the same. It's going to be driven by the combination of IT, data, Internet with medical devices. That's a huge opportunity; I personally believe it's as big as when the Internet came on in 2000.
