Five trends in medical science and technology industry!

Zhaoqing High-tech Zone realizes car dream With the rising cost of medical treatment, people’s demand for life and health is increasing, and all sectors of society have put forward new and higher requirements for the scientific and technological innovation and development of the medical and health industry. At the same time, with the advent of the age of aging, people’s ecological environment, lifestyle and disease spectrum are constantly changing, which leads to a variety of health problems.

The global medical service model is undergoing tremendous changes. The medical service scenario is gradually transiting from large hospitals, community hospitals, family doctors and pharmacies to home. More and more people can enjoy more convenient, efficient and low-cost disease diagnosis and treatment and health management services. In Europe and the United States, where the medical service market is relatively mature, the focus of the industry has begun to shift to home.

Direct-to-consumer (DTC) testing products can be directly purchased online, sampled at home and sent to the central laboratory for testing and analysis. Not only are there active start-ups in the industry, but also big diagnostics companies Lab Corp. and Quest are starting to enter.

Wearable devices are no longer just tools for recording steps and indicating abnormal indicators, many of which have been directly used in medical diagnosis.

Point-of-care testing (POCT) assisted by smartphones has gradually entered the home and grass-roots level. Low-cost, universal, easy-to-operate smartphones combined with AI data analysis can provide us with a variety of real-time detection solutions, and cover a number of medical fields.

Telemedicine platform enables users to visit home online. For patients with complex conditions, the second online medical platform can help them contact the world’s top medical experts for online consultation within a few days.

Some companies in the industry try to collect and analyze data through self-developed home health monitoring equipment, and give the corresponding home life health program.

Others in the health ecosystem, including government regulators, payers and individual consumers, are also actively promoting the reform of the health industry.

The application and promotion of various solutions in the medical and health industry can not be separated from the support of regulatory authorities. FDA, the barometer of global medical regulation, is transforming the whole field into regulated digital health.

Decentralized medical solutions promoted by technology not only bring convenience to users, but also greatly reduce medical costs. In Europe and the United States, commercial health insurance companies and national health insurance companies have begun to incorporate telemedicine projects into the health insurance catalogue, in order to solve the problem of patient payment.

Precision medicine is not a new concept. For hundreds of years, people have been pursuing the provision of health and medical services according to individual conditions. However, until recent years, the progress of scientific level and medical model has gradually enabled us to integrate individual solutions based on scientific basis into mainstream health care.

In the field of cancer, the development of gene detection technology has brought unprecedented impact on disease research. With the development and popularization of targeted drugs and concomitant diagnosis, it has become one of the most important cancer treatment methods to select targeted drugs according to the individual characteristics of cancer variation.

In the field of chronic metabolic diseases, the combination of digital medical treatment, health data and individualized medical treatment is shaping a new management model of chronic diseases designed for patients.

With the continuous progress of scientific and technological innovation and the initiative of individual consumers to pay attention to health risks and disease prevention, the focus of medical and health services is gradually shifting from “disease-centered” to “prevention-centered”. Moreover, early detection of health risks can not only help people to be healthier, but also effectively control medical costs.

Non-invasive and painless disease screening and detection technology is helping people to achieve prevention of various disease risks. Data show that convenient home-based medical level testing can effectively improve screening compliance.

With the continuous upgrading of product functions, wearable devices and digital health tools are gradually transforming from past recreational toys to scientific and effective health devices. They are not only recognized by medical professionals, but also are being used by commercial insurance and government-led health plans to guide users to take the initiative to pay attention to them. Health risk management.

The development of biosensor technology and the wide application of digital tools enable people to collect a large number of real-world data related to human health (RWD, real-world data). These information, combined with AI-driven large data analysis, can bring changes to the entire life science industry.
