Out of adversity, comes opportunity. The COVID-19 adversity has provided us an opportunity to ramp up healthcare infrastructure not only to suit present needs but also, to become future-ready. Technology is poised to be at the forefront of medical affairs in the country. Whether it is with automation of drug manufacturing process, or ramping up of telehealth infrastucture, a robust IT set-up at the backend is essential. COVID has changed the perspective, the problems and the solutions. Handling healthcare remotely has become the order of the day. The once unknown Pulse Oximeter is now a part of everyone’s vocabulary. There is ambulatory glucose profiling, remote monitoring and talk of 'smart insulins' which get triggered only when blood sugar levels rise. And that's not all: from artificial limbs to pancreas, lab-created organs are going to becoming mainstream. To better understand such profound and exciting technological advancements, financialexpress.com is organising the FE Healthcare Summit: a three-day conclave, where technology and industry stakeholders will come together to pave the way for a post-Covid advanced healthcare system, one that's both realistic and efficient in its use of today's infrastructure.
