Healthtech & Analytics

Health & Education remains a core sector within the UK economy, with many businesses – private and state-owned – carving out their own niches. Increasingly sophisticated technology continues to evolve the sector, with AI-enabled systems revolutionising healthcare, and bespoke education systems coming to proliferation over the pandemic lockdown periods.

Healthtech & Analytics

Healthtech is a rapidly growing sector that employs technology to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes. The sector encompasses a range of technologies and applications, including medical devices, wearables, telemedicine, electronic health records (EHRs), health information systems, and health analytics.

The global healthcare technology market is forecast to grow to 18.6% CAGR by 2030. This growth is needed to meet the ever-increasing costs of delivery and the need to demonstrate adherence to national policies or the needs of insurance companies.

Financial constraints and some changes in working practices over the Covid-19 lockdown periods have put technology at the forefront. Much needs to change and there is a recognition that early diagnosis can significantly improve outcomes at lower cost. This is accelerating with the development of machine learning and AI where diagnosis, drug testing and disease modelling are being transformed. Healthcare technology has become one of the most valuable markets as the needs of healthcare meet the required interpretation of big data.
