Today, healthcare is being driven by digital transformation enabled by radically interoperable data, from open and secure platforms. Technology’s non-linear pace of progress will undoubtedly create substantial market disruption in healthcare, spawning wave after wave of opportunities for traditional healthcare organizations, and new startups alike. Multibillion-dollar human genome projects and precision medicine, robotic surgeries, EMRs, telemedicine, wearables, and many more such recent technological advancements have delivered unprecedented benefits to the healthcare sector.
The widening array of digital tools paired with AI and big data analytics can boost a physician’s accuracy and speed, improving disease detection at early stages and thus raising the odds of successful treatment. Ubiquitous wearables and health tracking devices are becoming central to disease prevention, diagnosis, and therapy. Technologies like stick-on sensors and electronic tattoos can measure respiratory rate, check blood sugar, and transmit results seamlessly via Bluetooth with an accuracy of an ICU. These sensing devices will be central to disease prevention, diagnosis, and therapy by detecting a developing condition and sending patients’ data to physicians.
