We are entering a new era of medical care and treatment. NHS CEO Simon Stevens recently announced, “the health service is to fast-track the introduction of new ‘game-changing’ cancer drugs that target tumour-causing genetic flaws” heralding a step-change advance in personalised care.
New technologies such as AI-led diagnosis is a sign that digital advances are changing the face of healthcare in the UK at an unprecedented rate.
At a time when business leaders and government are looking to potential areas of new growth, digital health offers profound opportunities to radically improve healthcare accessibility.
Here are the 10 leading emerging healthcare technology trends for 2019/2020:
• Artificial Intelligence
• Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)
• Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
• Electronic Health Records (EHR)
• Blockchain and data security

By harnessing these new technologies, healthcare providers can improve patient health outcomes, be cost-effective, and provide faster care.
