5 Healthcare Technology Trends You Should Know for 2022

Rana mudassar rasool

The healthcare industry is one of the most quickly growing in the world, with billions of dollars being invested into new medical technology each year. However, with all of these advances in healthcare technology, it can be hard to keep track of what’s new and what’s coming down the pipeline in 2018 and beyond. Here are the five most important healthcare technology trends you should know about now in order to stay on top of your game.

#1 - Medical Devices

Whether you're talking about wearables and sensors or surgical robots, medical devices have become a massive source of revenue for healthcare IT companies. These tools not only help providers keep tabs on patients, but they can provide valuable data to researchers interested in how specific conditions develop and evolve over time. This research can lead to future treatments that are much more effective than older options. #2 - Telemedicine: Telemedicine is another emerging trend to watch in 2018 because it uses existing networks of doctors and hospitals (think HealthTap or Heal) to allow remote communication between health-care providers and their patients.

#2 - Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is finally becoming more commonplace in medical research, but there’s still a long way to go. While we’re on the road to discovering new medicines, AI will likely help doctors make better decisions about treatments (and even diagnoses) by integrating data from different sources. No doubt you’ve heard of IBM Watson and its cognitive computing technology, which has a wide range of uses in healthcare—but there are other companies working hard to bring AI solutions to our hospitals and clinics. A few worth keeping an eye on: Deep Genomics, Enlitic, Insilico Medicine Inc., Knome, Numerate Inc., NeoTherapeutics Ltd., Solace Health Inc., and Zhongping Chen MD PhD.

#3 - Healthcare Applications in 2022

The good, bad and ugly: With healthcare applications moving into mainstream use in 2022, IT professionals will be tasked with turning these new apps into a strategic part of their business' operations. As enterprises consider how to integrate healthcare technology, executives should expect three major trends—the good, bad and ugly—in years to come. Here's what you can expect from healthcare apps over the next few years.

#4 - IoT in Healthcare

IoT isn’t just a consumer trend anymore. IoT, or Internet of Things, is becoming integrated into hospitals and doctor’s offices across America. The potential benefits are endless—hospitals can use IoT devices to monitor and improve patient care as well as save time and money by tracking valuable assets. Here are some healthcare technology trends that you should know about

#5 - Wearables

Fitbits and Apple Watches have become so common, it’s easy to forget that wearables are a recent innovation. But fitness trackers are already playing an important role in healthcare, helping users better manage conditions like diabetes and hypertension. In addition to providing immediate feedback on their activities, wearables also store medical information that can be transmitted to their doctors if they fall or experience a spike in blood pressure. As wearables continue to evolve—for example by including stress-monitoring devices—they’ll become more integral parts of our healthcare regimen.
