Medical technologies have ceased to be the domain of the hospital's activity and have become a key component of the everyday life of each of us. What are MedTech's challenges facing?
Broadly speaking, medical technologies are any kind of knowledge involved in the implementation of tasks and achievement of specific results of the healthcare system. In a narrower sense, presented during the MedTech session, these technologies include various types of "devices related directly or indirectly to the provided healthcare services and specific interventions (therapeutic, diagnostic, rehabilitation or preventive) ".
The dynamic development of the MedTech sector is driven on the one hand by the needs, i.e. the growing number of challenges related to the development of civilization, and on the other hand by the development of various technologies that are used in procedures, devices and medical devices.
In the development of medical technologies, great hopes are placed on solving problems that arise in the broad spectrum of healthcare, but also in areas such as health management, economics, politics, and sustainable development.
How are some competences of the outpatient treatment process, hospital clinic, specialist clinic or home treatment changing, thanks to new technologies, artificial intelligence, cybernetics or telecommunications? What challenges will biomedical engineering take on - technically, economically and organizationally?
Medical technologies have ceased to be the domain of the hospital's activity and have become a key component of the everyday life of each of us. The number of medical devices and devices in our immediate environment will continue to increase. It's good to know where we are going and how to use it wisely.
