In an article recently published by Health Tech News, founder and CEO of Feebris, Elina Naydenova, discusses how she thinks healthtech will develop in 2021.
Health Tech News have curated a range of perspectives on healthtech trends for 2021 informed by experts, academics and innovators across the sector. Our CEO Elina discusses her predictions for the new year.
"I believe that, in the coming year, we will continue to see significant advances in the development and use of AI in healthcare, particularly in hospital settings where advanced algorithms have been increasingly augmenting clinical decision-making to aid the delivery of precision medicine." - Founder and CEO of Feebris, Elina Naydenova.
Elina points out that the development of similar technology for community or primary care settings, however, is lagging behind. She discusses how the pandemic highlighted the limitations of a centralised model of care and the significant opportunity to more effectively manage disease detection and triage in the community, especially the care sector.
Elina predicts that to springboard to the next level, AI-innovators must explore and develop new functionalities that enable quality control of data capture in the community, streamlined referral channels and provide remote decision-support for integrated decision-making for health and social care teams.
"Together we must create solutions, technologies and services that can be agile and adapt to the capability and capacity needs of our already overstretched health and social care services, at scale." - Founder and CEO of Feebris, Elina Naydenova.
