Healthcare and Information Technology Industry Convergence to Fuel Self-care Innovations

Self-care is a proactive and customized practice to establish and maintain an individual’s holistic health and wellness, as well as a key enabler in preventing and managing diseases. Self-care encompasses physical, mental, emotional, social, and environmental approaches to enhance an individual’s well-being. Self-care practices and interventions can empower people and communities with the agency to maintain and enhance their health and prevent and manage illnesses. Self-care can often be complemented with products and services from professional healthcare providers, such as physicians, nurses, and healthcare centers, as needed, to improve the well-being of the end user. Self-care will not replace global healthcare systems or practices but will help enhance existing systems to achieve UHC.
