Time for Medtech to be more connected and more Intelligent
EVERYTHING is connected, according to Dirk Gently, the eccentric protagonist of the TV series, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. As it seems, all medical devices will soon be.
Welcome to the age of Connected Healthcare!
MedTech has reached a level of maturity where we can collect, analyze and transmit patient data in real time, allowing for remote monitoring of chronic diseases, better diagnosis and treatment of health issues. AI-powered sleeping aids no longer reside exclusively in the pages of Sci-Fi. Even your doctor is now connected for a virtual diagnosis. No wonder, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is estimated to be worth $158 billion in 2022.
From AI-enabled triage in emergency rooms to tools for improving efficiency and accuracy in radiology, MedTech innovations are revolutionizing the medical field. In this issue of “This Week in Consulting,” we explore the implications of these advancements for healthcare industry stakeholders, professionals as well as patients, and what is expected over the next few years. We also look at the threats to data privacy and the critical role that cyber security will play.
