Looking Ahead

Digital health developments in 2020 and beyond: What to expect

It's no secret the last decade has been major for digital health, with billions and billions of dollars poured into the industry since 2010. While some digital technologies such as telemedicine are starting to become part of the mainstream health lexicon, there are many more still carving out their name.

The next decade is sure to be a test of digital health technologies — but it will also test traditional health systems as new entrants in the space, such as Amazon, Google and Apple, continue to shake up the standard care delivery model. This month MobiHealthNews will be taking time to look at the possibilities for digital health in 2020 and beyond.
