The healthcare industry has never been subjected to as much attention and scrutiny as it is today. As the world grapples with the seemingly unending pandemic, it looks towards healthcare services as the one great hope that will return us to normalcy.
Across the world, the healthcare industry is being stretched thin as it faces inadequate infrastructure and manpower. In addition to treating the large numbers of infected persons, the healthcare industry is tasked with COVID-19 testing and containment, as well as producing and administering vaccines. All this requires a massive amount of communication between various stakeholders within and without, including governments and the general public, and an IT stack robust enough to support it. At the same time, pre-pandemic demands on healthcare remain. Patients suffering from other illnesses still need to be treated; R&D, clinical trials and treatment of chronic illnesses must go on.
As such, the healthcare industry has increasingly turned to technology to ease its burden. Once conservative about digital transformation, healthcare has now embraced it with frenzy, with technologies like telemedicine and IoT being utilised in view of manpower constraints. And while the industry had adopted cloud and big data prior to the pandemic, COVID-19 has necessitated data sharing, analysis and quick deployment on a global scale. Healthcare 2021 is a special magazine from Frontier Enterprise that aims to understand how the healthcare industry has dealt with COVID-19, and the ways in which technology has been crucial in this battle. It also seeks to highlight how new technologies are being used in healthcare as a whole. It features:
