What's Ahead in 2015

By Daniel Piekarz

Medical Design Technology spoke with the industry leaders about 2015 trends in healthcare tech, and included insight from Daniel Piekarz, VP of Business Development, Life Sciences at DataArt.

“Technology implemented well is greatly increasing our ability to understand the human body and how to care for it. In 2015, next generation genetic sequencing techniques will be revolutionizing diagnosis of infectious disease, but the FDA’s recent move for tighter regulation of laboratory developed tests may slow progress. As this technology becomes readily available, it will speed up diagnosis and eliminate diagnostic errors. Telehealth virtual doctor visits will also begin to bring back low cost, at-home virtual visits, making physicians more accessible and reducing the time and effort it takes for a patient to receive the care they need. We also see mHealth and wearable technologies advancing quickly in healthcare, as they are being used to improve the quality of data collected in clinical trials, and improving the lives of patients with chronic conditions like diabetes and heart conditions. These are just three trends out of many advances that will provide early prevention, quicker diagnosis, and better overall healthcare.”
