According to a prediction of The World Health Organisation (WHO) there will be a global shortfall of 10m healthcare workers by 2030. The world is facing a healthcare zero hours. A shortage of doctors and nurses coupled with rising costs of running hospitals, is putting patients’ lives on the line.
In the developed world, this shortage is creating ‘medical deserts’ where people are losing access to healthcare near where they live.
In this hour of need, the world seeks smart healthcare solutions with medical devices and AI.
Help is at hand. For the last few years digital healthcare technology has been advancing fast. Innovative solutions using connected devices and artificial intelligence (AI) are now available to help meet the rising demand for better and more accessible healthcare. These advances have the potential to vastly improve access, quality of care, and patient experience
