The tech world is spurring an evolution in all of the industries it touches, but there's one sector that may seem to be upgrading itself at a snail's pace: health care.
"Today the health sector faces a daunting new digital challenge: unleashing the power of technology to fundamentally reinvent how care is delivered," according to the health research arm of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

"There's so much data that is out there about each of us individually, but nobody's actually been able to pull up all my data and tell me how I'm going to be better and how am I going to live longer," said Nikesh Arora, SoftBank Corp. COO, in an interview with CNBC. "Nor have we taken data from all the people around here and been able to put it together and say, based on big data, here's what I think, why things are happening," Arora added.
