Staying current in health tech's dynamic realm can feel like a real challenge. Here are the top three enduring healthcare trends to keep an eye on:
AI and Machine Learning
Industry giants like IBM and Microsoft, along with startups, leverage AI for medical processes. Learning from data, AI holds potential despite data challenges, making healthcare more efficient without replacing professionals.
Virtual patient care through phone, video, or chat, popularised by the pandemic, proves cost-effective and accessible. 80% of consumers have used telemedicine, with synchronous (real-time) and asynchronous (offline) options available.
IoT (Internet of Things)
IoT-driven healthcare hardware, from wearable sensors to heart rate devices, revolutionizes patient care. IoT aids remote monitoring of chronic conditions, empowering quicker decisions and timely interventions.
