Trends in Medical Technology

One of the biggest trends in healthcare for the future is nanotechnologies. Their medical applications vary, with drug delivery representing an important milestone. The ability to target individual cells using particles as small as a virus to deliver medication could significantly reduce the quantity of a drug needed for desirable effects.

The number of people using devices such as smart watches has drastically increased in the last few years and with it the amount of data generated daily by users.

Innovation plays a central role in maintaining health as well as restoring it. Since its inception in 2011, cloud based AI IBM Watson has been marketed as a revolutionary tool for healthcare, IBM engineers hoped to create a technology that would not only perform diagnostics but supervise the whole treatment process.
