The growing popularity of digital health among consumers has been aided by the embrace of technology by doctors and healthcare organisations in the form of electronic prescriptions, and contact with patients through WhatsApp integrations.
Over the past few years, healthcare has seen a dramatic evolution. New developments and trends in the healthcare sector are being developed by start-ups in that sector. Do you believe the healthcare services offered by start-ups to patients are of high quality?
Over the last decade, we have steadily seen care move out of hospitals and closer to patients’ homes using technology. Propelled by the pandemic and increased digital penetration, care is reaching patients’ houses through teleconsultation models, mobile apps helping deliver care programs, use of IoT devices to track vitals, diagnostics at home, rapid self-diagnostic tests, and new age asset-light healthcare models like Mykare Health, which utilise under-utilised small and medium hospitals.
As a doctor founded, patient-focused company, Doctor Care Anywhere plc (ASX:DOC) believe that happy doctors mean happy patients. It’s a virtuous circle and one that we’ve built a great team to help keep going.
