  6. “Not being sick” to “Being Well”
  7. Shortage of Professionals
  8. The information hight gains more and more influence
  9. Concepts such as P2P and Web 2.0 arrive at the health sector
  10. Social entrepreneurs take the lead
  11. Consumer-driven healthcare
  12. Electronic medical records
  13. Cost containment will become more and more critical in healthcare
  14. New actors will appear in the healthcare value chain
  15. Healthcare will become more and more “vertical”
