The healthcare industry here was the worst at receiving the negative impact of this deadly virus, paralyzing every possible and sought-after (once considered) medical facilities around us.

I know it sounds harsh, but am speaking the fact here, and the disruption caused by the pandemic has left no scope for the healthcare industry to carry out its normal operations. But technology paved a way for us, enabling us to take care of our healthcare needs with the most innovative healthcare technologies.

Now, as COVID-19 is changing its colors every day, and mutating at a rapid-fire speed, are there any more advances to be experienced?

Blockchain will improve healthcare

Among all the existing trends, one of the most unique approaches is offered by Blockchain technology. Although, most of us think that how Blockchain, a technology that was supposed to ease down the road for financial transactions, can smooth down the healthcare system.

But this is very much a part of the healthcare industry as well and can offer security, and accessibility in the context of interoperability.

With Blockchain technology, it becomes easy to improve transparency and integrity via a digital ledger. And it also keeps a strong check on the supply chain and the quality of the types of equipment and medicines that are being sold across the world.

Improved privacy

Security and privacy are the two factors that are highly significant in the healthcare sector, and compromising the data here, can be dangerous. Hence, the year 2021 is going to witness regulations to secure Protected Health Information (ePHI).

COVID-19 has brought remote communication into practice especially during a health emergency. Hence it is highly important for the telehealth companies to exercise these rules and make their offered services compliant. 


It was not long before, but only a few months ago, when the COVID-19 epidemic turned into a pandemic and we realized that we were in the mid of crisis, having nowhere to go.

And here, the worst affected was the healthcare sector, where not just the COVID patients but ailing patients with chronic disease, and patients with special needs, had no alternative left. 

Here the inclusion of the wearable devices helped healthcare professionals to track the real-time information on patient data from their remote locations only. And helped them get the right diagnosis and treatment without any delay. 

This process of constant assistance through the hands of telehealth would continue to grow in the coming years as well and is likely to get a major boost of $185.6 billion by 2026.
