Trend 1 Artificial Intelligence in Healthcare

In the healthcare industry, machine learning is extremely useful for the development of new pharmaceutical products and the efficiency of diagnostic processes. AI helps analyze CT scans to detect pneumonia. Mentioning mental health, MIT and Harvard University researchers have used machine learning to track trends and mental health as it correlates with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trend 2 Telemedicine

Telehealth should reach $185.6 billion by 2026. If you need a dedicated telemedicine application, one of the most important technologies that will be needed is WebRTC, an open source API-based system.

Trend 3 Extended Reality

One of the most popular and useful forms of this technology is the use of mixed reality headsets like Microsoft Hololens 2 by surgeons. The helmet can provide warning information to the surgeon while allowing him to use both hands during the procedure.

Trend 4 IoT

The Global IoT Medical Devices Market is Expected to Reach $94.2 billion by 2026 from $26.5 billion in 2021. With the healthcare sector becoming increasingly connected through these technologies, the IoT cannot be ignored.

Trend 5 Privacy and Security

Ensuring your organization is HIPAA compliant is an essential first step in avoiding costly data breaches. If you serve patients internationally, it may be a good idea to consider the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) regulations in the European Union.

Trend 6 Organ care and bio-printing

With the global transplant market size expected to reach $26.5 billion by 2028, organ transplants will definitely be an important part of the healthcare industry. The organ care system developed by Transmedics is an excellent example of this. Bio-printing has been practiced in the past but has not yet reached the mainstream.
