Digital technology has revolutionized many industries, and it's no surprise that it’s making waves in healthcare. Numerous advancements are helping reform unsustainable healthcare systems, develop cheaper, faster, and more effective cures for diseases, and improve the welfare of patients and healthcare providers alike.
The mere mention of the word “technology” elicits a certain expectation. Namely, that we’re dealing with something that’s modern, new, and has the potential to change our lives. In healthcare, new and transformative solutions are constantly being created.
Corporate giants like Microsoft, Google and Apple are essentially cultural icons because their software and hardware innovations have been, dare we say, revolutionary. Similarly, in the not-too-distant future, we’ll be looking back and marvelling about how healthcare once existed without some of the radical-sounding technologies that are tantalizingly close to becoming reality.
