The Fourth Wave: Digital Health

The Fourth Wave: Digital Health


Paul Sonnier is an author, speaker, technologist, and social entrepreneur who has spent nearly a decade educating global stakeholders on digital health and its escalating impact on health, healthcare, living, and society. In The Fourth Wave: Digital Health, Paul explains how the fusion of the digital and genomic revolutions is rapidly creating a new era of human progress.

Building upon the work of futurist Alvin Toffler—author of The Third Wave—Sonnier enumerates the key drivers of The Fourth Wave and, along the way, cites the work of other key innovators and thought leaders, whose work has formed the digital health body of knowledge: J. Craig Venter, Francis Crick, Eric Topol, MD, Donald Jones, George Church, Richard Resnick, Mick Watson, Steve Case, Vinod Khosla, Bernard J.Tyson, Clayton Christensen, Evgeny Morozov, Marc Andreessen, Tim Cook, Kevin Plank, and Nikola Tesla.

The Fourth Wave: Digital Health provides readers from all backgrounds and stakeholder groups—consumers, business leaders, technologists, scientists, policymakers, regulators, and heads of non-governmental organizations—with an understanding of the basics of digital health, the significance of the megatrends taking place, the commensurate challenges and opportunities, and key actionable insights for catalyzing a new era of human progress.
