The planet is now acclimatizing to the workings of the new standard. In both public and private hospitals, nursing homes, and physicians striving against an unpredictable pandemic and changing treatment protocols, the healthcare industry rose to the COVID challenge. With massive insights and strategic takeaways to tackle the global pandemic, the healthcare industry will undoubtedly find a stronger footing in the next decade.
The rapid monitoring of medication approvals (new and repurposed for COVID-19) and rapid improvement in the manufacture of vaccines, compressing the approval cycle from decades to months, has changed the healthcare industry’s entire ecosystem.
The next decade will benefit from rapid shifts in the way emerging innovations are viewed and embraced. Visiting remote villages, suffering from the absence of clinical knowledge, and using a digital stethoscope to listen to their heart and lungs, similar to a physical test, and then administer suitable medicines.
Most significantly, to foresee the probability of potential crises, the healthcare sector would no longer like to fight in the dark and invest heavily in a forecasting method. Technological progress in disaster forecasting models focused on Artificial Intelligence can not only help us avoid the colossal loss and destruction of human lives, but also prepare us as a community to tackle a global catastrophe effectively.
