Synopsis

Health Tech: Rebooting Society's Software, Hardware and Mindset fulfills the need for actionable insight on what's truly driving change and how to become a changemaker, not just affected by it. The book introduces anybody who wishes to understand how global healthcare will change in the next decade to the key technologies, social dynamics, and systemic shifts that are shaping the future.



Healthcare futurist, investor, and entrepreneur Trond Arne Undheim describes the complex history of public health, why it's so complicated and what the major challenges are right now. He includes a discussion of COVID, why it happened, the cultural factors that have slowed down traditional public health measures, and how innovation can help. He also discusses what is happening in health systems around the world as a result of the pandemic. The book explores certain health tech measures, tools (basic medical devices gradually being upgraded and digitally enhanced), processes, and innovations that are already working well along with others that are in their infancy, such as AI, wearables, robotics, sensors, and digital therapeutics.



The book describes the movers and shakers in the healthcare system of the future, from startups to patient and service providers, as well as the health challenges of our time, including pandemics, aging, preventive healthcare, and much more. The book concludes with a look at how health tech may bring about the biggest opportunity to transform healthcare for decades to come.
