The Covid- 19 has already inflicted drastic changes to healthcare systems around the world and has kicked off a digital makeover of the industry in the Middle East and North Africa. It’s a remarkable story that is playing out in the technology- led enablement at the back end of healthcare organizations, even as the headlines are dominated by the heroic response efforts at the front lines of care.
The research noted the pandemic is set to reshape the healthcare industry with cutting-edge technologies in virtual care such as internet of medical things (IoMT), teleradiology, telemedicine, remote patient monitoring, and virtual visits. The use of digital health solutions can revolutionize the healthcare system and industry – providing opportunities to transform the delivery of healthcare and enhance patient care.
With innovation in the forefront, the goals of optimizing systems, improving patient outcomes, lowering costs, increasing efficiency and improving on physicians’ work can be a reality.
