Health Tech is, simply, the use of technology in healthcare. Yep, that simple. It’s a broad field that has developed over time from being a term applied to things like electronic GP records systems, medical appliances, and computer software in radiology.
In 2020, health tech includes the apps available today for accessing a GP via video call, machine learning algorithms for classifying medical images, and artificial intelligence, to name a few. All of which were incredibly valuable in the last 12 months, in the wake of the global pandemic.
