Hospital leaders are constantly in search for effective ways to reduce costs, while increasing care quality.
Advancements in medical technology have allowed physicians to better diagnose and treat their patients since the beginning of the professional practice of medicine. Thanks to the continuous development of technology in the medical field, countless lives have been saved and the overall quality of life continues to improve over time.
Medical technology has evolved from introducing doctors to new equipment to use inside private practices and hospitals to connecting patients and doctors thousands of miles away through telecommunications. It is not uncommon in today’s world for patients to hold video conferences with physicians to save time and money normally spent on traveling to another geographic location or send health information instantaneously to any specialist or doctor in the world. Digital innovations make it possible for consumers to use portable devices to access their medical information, monitor their vital signs and carry out a wide range of tasks.

Role of Startups
Since most of the disruption in the conventional sectors these days is being attempted by the Startups, it’s important that such startups are identified and nourished in early stages so that they can innovate and solve the problems that are core to the sectors. The industry leaders realize this and are in constant search for such startups.
