Will see increasing use of Cobots and Robots in hospitals:

In a very short time, COVID-19 has presented unparalleled disruptions to all aspects of the healthcare industry. The pandemic has put pressure on the healthcare sector, which has contributed to the industry’s digital transformation.

Some of the developments in healthcare and life sciences driven by technology that we’ll see in the coming years are below:

  • As telehealth solutions have gained popularity due to COVID-19, remote treatment is here to stay. Telehealth can play a major role in health care in a wide range of cases, such as primary diagnosis, COVID management such as infectious diseases, even helping to track patients with chronic conditions and post-surgical recovery, especially in India, where the larger population lives in rural areas and specialist doctors are mostly located in the cities.

  • Telemedicine solutions and other home care services have started to gain widespread acceptance in the healthcare ecosystem in India and will continue to do so in coming years as well.

  • We will see growing use of Cobots and Robots in hospitals in the coming years, especially deployed for COVID wards. Chatbots can assist in the triage of patients seeking symptom care.

  • We also see solutions like Software-as-a-Medical System to better supplement drug treatment for chronic and lifestyle disorders such as heart disease, diabetes and respiratory problems with a lifestyle management solution. The adoption of such solutions would be motivated by decreases in regular follow-up visits to hospitals and physicians and by a sense of well-being.

  • For the industry, the position of AI and analytics will be important. Businesses have been successful in accelerating the growth, validation and launch of products all in a matter of weeks and months with the use of AI, particularly machine learning and advanced analytics that assist in breakthrough innovation.
