Opportunities and challenges in the medtech sector

The challenges and opportunities transforming the medtech sector

The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digital adoption, with businesses leapfrogging as much as seven years of gradual transformation in a handful of months. Technology became ubiquitous, with a new tech business created every half an hour in the UK in 2020, and demand for STEM talent spiked. Technology enabled businesses to weather disruption and pivot.  

Few industries felt this upheaval as strongly as life sciences. With mounting pressure on the healthcare and the sciences industry to balance resources, supplies, infrastructure, and case numbers, increasingly we saw how technology became a boon for agility and rapid change. 

But this is not the first, nor will it be the last, opportunity for collaboration in digital health. 

In this whitepaper, we explore how technology is creating a burning platform for change in the healthcare and life sciences industry, and how digital will influence our behaviour well into the new normal.  

In particular we explore the themes of:

- Data, analytics, and AI
- Cloud and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)
- Robotics and augmented reality
