Healthcare Technology Outlook 2020 – Technology uptake




In Technology Outlook 2020 Healthcare the Healthcare Research Programme in DNV R&I identifies global megatrends and technologies that will be pertinent to the healthcare sector in 2020.

The healthcare sector faces challenges that threaten a sustainable development in many countries globally; healthcare expenditure in developed countries takes up a larger proportion of the economies and has the potential to trigger a financial crisis if not contained, the rising elderly population in many countries will put a burden to healthcare organisations struggling with shortage in healthcare workers, concomitantly the pandemic of non-communicable diseases constitute one of the major challenges for development in the twenty-first century.

Implementation of new and existing technologies in the healthcare sector may aid healthcare systems in overcoming the challenges, but will also introduce new risks to patients.
