We’ve teamed up with the finnCap Group to go ‘Inside the Deal’ in a series of virtual events that you will not want to miss. In this instalment, we dive into the topic of accelerating digital transformation across the healthcare sector.

2020 saw hospitals, health systems, and also patients, increasingly relying on digital health technologies for care delivery during the pandemic, setting the stage for continued growth and innovation in 2021.

Although adoption of new healthcare technology has been slower in the past, continued innovation is needed to deal with a post-pandemic world and modernise unwieldy systems used in the healthcare sector. The real opportunities for business and to create lasting change for patients are there to be won.

However, is there a danger that digital could take over and that Doctors become technically proficient computers who forget how to treat the human condition? Or will digital technology, if developed correctly, be the remedy everyone involved in healthcare so badly needs, leading to more efficient and satisfied doctors and happier patients?
