The field of biomedicine is concerned with the application of various natural science disciplines for the development of knowledge, interventions, and/or technologies for use in healthcare. The Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector focuses on telecommunications, computing, and the integration of both.

The convergence of biomedical and ICT represents a high opportunity area for both healthcare and ICT industries. In addition to seeking cures to disease and ailment prevention, combined biomedical and ICT solutions will lead to improved treatment efficacy as well as overall improvements in healthcare service delivery efficiency and effectiveness.

With healthcare costs growing much faster than the general inflation rate, it is of the utmost importance to simultaneously seek improved treatment while continuously driving down business costs. These costs include ongoing operational expenditures as well as expensive R&D such as drug discovery and other pharmaceutical-related areas such as vaccine development that take into account precision medicine practices.

Various ICT tools may be employed such as IoT-enabled monitoring to determine the effectiveness of medical procedures, which can be especially important when administering new and unproven healthcare modalities. One specific example is the administration of vaccines, which is believed to potentially cause harm to a subset of the population based on epigenetics, which is the study of changes in organisms caused by modification of gene expression rather than alteration of the genetic code itself.

This is believed to be an area in which a healthcare modality (in this example, vaccines) is designed with one intent (to inoculate one to prevent the onset of disease), but may actually trigger unintended consequences such as causing harm based on an individual's unique gene expression.

One of the fastest-growing areas for ICT in healthcare is the use of wireless access by IP-enabled, handheld digital devices. Wearables and implantable technology hold the promise of a level of monitoring and healthcare administration that is unprecedented in the history of health science. Ranging from treatment administration to clinical decision support, connected devices are a rapidly evolving tool for the advancement of healthcare practices.

These same tools may be used for both reactive and proactive medical modalities such as insulin modification and vaccine optimization respectively. The convergence of ICT and biomedicine is therefore anticipated to lead to both improved economics (lower costs and improved revenues through the identification of new healthcare treatments) as well as improve overall public health.
