Unprecedented access to a world of information has given rise to the empowered, albeit distrustful, consumer. So is the case with healthcare, where the patient has been rendered more informed and conscientious thanks to the extraordinary penetration of the Internet. The discerning patient now demands more affordable, sophisticated, transparent, and personalized healthcare services, creating the need for new models for care.
The advent of health information technology (HIT) components such as electronic health records (EHR), hospital information systems (HIS), picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), and vendor neutral archives (VNA) has had just as transformational an impact on the overall healthcare sector as the concerns regarding security and privacy. Data theft, undue access to personal health records, and cyber-attacks are very real threats that the healthcare sector faces today.
The medical devices industry in the past decade has witnessed unprecedented growth owing to improved and innovative technologies and the development of state-of-the-art infrastructural facilities. Technologies such as 3D printing offer market players a plethora of growth opportunities in the field of personalized medicine. Faster regulatory approvals and consistent R&D activities have had a positive impact on the medical devices as well as pharmaceutical industry.
