A person’s health equity is determined > 50% by social factors like physical environment, social context, individual behavior, and the rest by biology (genome, epigenome) (<25%) and health technology (<15%).
The world is in a sensor evolution (1.0, 2.0 & currently in 3.0) with passive data gathering, aggregation, and meaningful interpretation. The world is taking a fresh approach to health monitoring with the use of personalized monitoring devices. An opportunity for technologists to integrate the solutions with the devices for remote clinical decision making.
Healthcare technology can be updated like alerting ‘’ Don’t shake hands with (a particular person) today. Coronavirus risk is 43%’’. The concept of a medical selfie or self-managed healthcare is emerging. Various companies (eg. 19 labs) are providing health and video monitoring solutions for self-managed health care.
Doctors and time management are gaining importance in synthesizing data to workflow and the connection of remote setups. In the future, Doctors who are AI-enabled will be more favored than normal doctors. The smartphone market in Africa & India is a great opportunity for innovative technologies for the future of healthcare to be developed. Augmented reality and virtual reality are gaining importance.
