The healthcare industry is revitalizing and transforming itself and has become inexorably digitized. EHRs actively help track patient health and assess harmful drug interactions. There is real-time communication from devices today- Fitness trackers help track daily exercise and food consumption and a connected heart monitor will send immediate alerts to emergency responders if issues arise. A slew of apps that act as personal trainers to lifesaving pocket-sized devices, wearables and nearables represent an enormous wave of digital disruption for the healthcare industry.

People are opening up to the idea that robots and drones can be used as a force for good in healthcare. As the aging population grows, so will the use of robotic health aids or ‘healthbots’.  This panel discussion is an overview of how the healthcare industry is adapting to this new wave of digital disruption.
