Accelerating Medical Technology through Innovation

The COVID-19 pandemic provided the unexpected conditions for an unprecedented natural experiment in the healthcare sector. A substantial increase in healthcare demand was combined with mandatory distancing measures. This prevented patients from accessing, and clinicians from providing, healthcare by traditional routes. The result was a rapid development and acceleration of the implementation of technology in the healthcare market. Large-scale adoption of technological innovations produced efficient and cost-effective solutions which helped to mitigate the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, but also may help to address growing unmet needs in the NHS.

Technology does not in itself improve healthcare. It needs to be used by clinicians and, in many cases, patients or their carers. So, to launch a technology that is integrated into care-management routines and well-accepted by end-users, innovators need to include user perspectives within the design process.
