The Future is now

Advances in digital healthcare technologies, such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, 3D printing, robots, and nanotechnology are changing the future of healthcare right now, right in front of us. Technologies are already helping us, such as applying machine learning to mammography to improve breast cancer detection. Health 4.0 unlocks formidable opportunities, ranging from personalized treatment, early detection of cancers, or prediction of treatment outcomes.

Health 4.0 and the challenge of digitalizing the health system for better patient care

Companies, like yours maybe, are certainly making efforts to keep up with the fast-paced new tech trends and working hand-in-hand with technology building the future of healthcare. Like any transformation, Health 4.0 brings along its own challenges: access to innovation, organizational transformation, integration of new technologies and sustainability of the new business models, among others. This sounds familiar? At DayOne, we are here to help!

Health 4.0 is improving healthcare

Health 4.0 is the tech-driven transformation of our traditional healthcare industry as we know it. The concept is derived from Industry 4.0., which represents the fourth manufacturing revolution. Health 4.0 offers a wide range of possibilities for using Industry 4.0 technologies to improve healthcare. The objective? To provide patients with better, more value-added, and more cost-effective healthcare services, while also improving the industry’s efficacy and efficiency. Exciting technologies, like Cloud computing, Big Data (BD), Internet of Things (IoT), Augmented Reality (AR) and many more, are opening fantastic and exciting opportunities to change the care pathway and the overall healthcare systems. You want to find out how to harness Health 4.0 in your company? Our DayOne team is accompanying you every step of the way.

Testimonials from some of our Alumni

Thanks to our acceleration programs, our partners get the opportunity to jointly work with some brilliant minds and startups, leveraging some leading-edge technologies such as AI, digital biomarkers, VR/AR, or solutions in trending fields such as patient remote monitoring or brain health. Discover a few of our Alumni in these areas:

Artificial Intelligence

One example is Zoundream which uses AI to monitor baby cries to identify infants’ needs, emotions, well-being, and physical and neurological status. Another of our Alumni, Rekonas, has developed AI for EGG analysis to assess brain health, current, future cognition, and sleep macro/micro-structure. Or Nutrix, which applies AI to analyze molecules and biomarkers in saliva samples for health monitoring.

Digital Biomarkers

Magnes and its connected smart shoes provide gait analysis and haptic feedback in patients with neurodegenerative diseases, allowing for monitoring of the disease progression and drug efficacy thanks to digital biomarkers assessment in clinical trials.


Rescape are using VR in healthcare to reduce pain, anxiety and improve the patient experience with their medical device DR.VR®. Once it will be effectively incorporated into patient care pathways, it will make a tangible difference to both adults and children.
