Three core technology areas for HealthTech are undergoing rapid evolution resulting in increased speed, accuracy, and overall performance.

  • Application Technology
  • Digitalization Technology 
  • IT Infrastructure Technology

Hardware and Software Technology is the base for medical devices, health platforms, doctor’s offices, hospitals, telemedicine, ambulance and rescue, and many other HealthTech solutions that you can no longer imagine without.

Application Technology

The term “Application Technology” refers to all software, data, and physical solutions that are enabled by revolutionary innovations outside of the healthcare sector but which, in turn, support new opportunities for data generation and analytics or digital diagnosis or treatment.

Examples include:

  • Nanotechnology
  • Biosensors
  • Wearables
  • Medical devices
  • Connected devices
  • 3D printing
  • Robotics
  • Next-Generation Sequencing

Digitalization Technology 

Digitalization Technology refers to technology and computing approaches associated with generating and analysing large datasets to build knowledge or optimise outcomes.

Examples include:

  • Smart devices
  • Applications
  • Big Data
  • BlockChain
  • Machine Learning
  • Deep Learning
  • Artificial Intelligence

IT Infrastructure Technology

This term refers to software solutions that support the optimization of operations through the digitization of historically offline systems and processes.

Examples include:

  • Electronic recording
  • Data repository
  • Records management
  • Data security, VPN
  • Analytics
  • Decision making
  • Safety

Advancements in these technology areas can only be made within the bounds of local and global standards, which are in place to ensure reliable and high-quality products and services.

One of the next posts will cover the HealthTech/Medical Standards and regulations which could as well give space for discussions.
