From germ theory to gene therapy, open-heart surgeries to 3D-printed prosthetics, the healthcare industry has always been at the bleeding edge of technological possibility. Healthtech is a broad sector, connecting providers, payers, and health professionals with emerging tech — and promising to touch every human life for the better.
Indeed, we might just look back on the COVID-19 pandemic as a tipping point for the industry: a moment when urgency, innovation, and investment thrust healthtech into new territory. Now, health management extends far beyond the hospital. It’s a digitally-enabled dialogue between practitioners and patients, across time zones and devices.
In an industry with so many competing directives — regulatory compliance, sensitive data, patient health and wellbeing, stakeholders with disparate priorities — it’s crucial to build software
that recognizes the nuances and challenges of healthtech today.
