Over the last decades, we have witnessed a large-scale disruption of our healthcare ecosystem. Digital transformation coupled with advanced technology will play a key role in addressing the current challenges faced by healthcare systems worldwide, including keeping up with the growing demand for health services, staffing shortages, the need for more personalized care, and budget restraints.
The impact of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) will have major implications for the diagnostic testing industry, including lab diagnostics. Labs already use multiple digital solutions to improve operations and deliver better diagnostic solutions to their customers. The digital health revolution will also dramatically expand the diagnostic toolbox outside of the central lab to the doctor’s office, patients’ homes, and even onto the patients themselves.
These digital and advanced technological trends will change the market landscape in diagnostics. Now is the time for lab leaders to see the technology revolution as an opportunity and actively embrace it.
