3) Empowering Individuals - This dimension will have to include strategies that could help determine socioeconomic and behavioral principles that could influence a patient's participation in healthcare and wellness activities.

4) Sensors, Devices and Robotics - This dimension should include investigative approaches that will allow interoperable, temporally synchronized, medical prosthetic and embedded devices to continuously capture, store, and transmit physiological and environmental data.
