Covid-19 pandemic likely to accelerate the development of at-home healthcare technologies

July 28, 2020


The Covid-19 pandemic has forced healthcare providers to consider using alternate methods to continue to treat populations that should currently avoid visiting clinics or hospitals. Devices that allow remote patient monitoring or at-home technologies and procedures may see rapid adoption in the coming months as a result, potentially changing the post-Covid healthcare landscape.

Unsurprisingly, healthcare systems around the world have likewise been significantly impacted.
