  2. Creating a global cybernervous system
  3. Transforming sick care to health care
  4. Transforming a sick care system into a digital one
  5. Having a digical strategy
  6. Leading and supporting digital health innovation and entrepreneurship
  7. Resources
  8. Leaderpreneurship
  9. Manpower development and training
  10. Metrics for user defined value recognizing that there are multiple stakeholders that require different value propositions.
  11. Closing the sick care digital divide
  12. Navigating the digital health entrepreneurship roadmap
  13. Clinically validating that they actually work.
  14. Providing electricity to areas where there is none
  15. Having a VAST business model
