Health care has seen a lot of innovation over the years. It’s an industry that is expected to grow beyond $7 trillion by 2021, according to Statista. Say’s Dr. John Manzella, the future of healthcare is going through some major changes right now, with changes in technology and regulations coming into play.

This article will take a look at some of the trends and innovations happening in health care today—and how they’ll affect you as a patient or provider.

Patients as Consumers

Patients are looking for more control over their care and want to be able to monitor their own health. They also want transparency in the process, including being able to understand what they’re paying for, why it costs so much, and how they can get better value out of their insurance plan.

Health Care Disruption

In the years to come, healthcare will become more consumer-driven and technology-driven. This is especially true as more people begin to realize that they can take control of their own health through preventative measures such as diet and exercise.

It’s also important to note that this trend has been ongoing for quite some time now–and it’s only going to continue into the future. In fact, there are several ways in which healthcare has already changed since its inception centuries ago:

The Rise of Telehealth

Telehealth is the delivery of health care services and information between two or more locations using electronic communication. It can take many forms, including telemedicine, remote patient monitoring and virtual care. The use of technology to connect patients with their doctors has been around since the 1960s, but it’s only recently that we’ve seen a significant rise in popularity among both patients and providers alike.

Telehealth offers several advantages over traditional in-person visits: it provides greater access to care for those who may not have easy access otherwise (such as those living in rural areas), reduces travel time for both patients and providers by eliminating travel costs as well as reducing traffic congestion during rush hour periods; it allows providers flexibility when scheduling appointments; it makes communication easier because both parties are able to see each other at all times (especially important when discussing sensitive topics like mental health issues); finally it saves money by reducing overhead costs associated with running an office space such as rent/mortgage payment utilities etcetera

Wearable Tech and Wearable Diagnostics

Wearable technology is a growing trend in healthcare. The ability to monitor your health, track your activity levels and keep tabs on your heart rate is a powerful tool for improving quality of life. Wearable diagnostics are also becoming more common as new sensors are developed that can detect diseases at an earlier stage than traditional methods.

Wearable devices have been around for some time now but there’s still room for improvement as we learn how to best use them in medical settings–and even beyond that!

There is a lot going on in healthcare right now.

There is a lot going on in healthcare right now. There are new technologies, innovations and ideas that will shape the future of healthcare.

The future of healthcare will be very different from the past. We can’t wait to see how it unfolds!


The healthcare industry is in the midst of a major transformation. It’s time for you to start paying attention, because these changes will affect everyone. The good news is that there are plenty of opportunities out there for those who want to be part of this revolution.
