Predicting the Future of Healthcare Technology
The 140-year-old health system that I work for, SSM Health, is proud of its rich history. About once each year, we pull out archived pictures and news clips from decades ago, and I always enjoy looking at the black-and-white pictures, which show clinical devices made from wood and metal that were considered state of the art at the time. It reminds me how far healthcare technology has come. However, I believe the next few decades will see changes in healthcare technology that will make today's devices look as ancient as the ones in the old photos.
