3 Technologies That Will Change Health Care Forever

3 Technologies That Will Change Health Care Forever

When you think about how primitive medical technology was just a few years ago, it seems surprising that the human race managed to survive. Back when our grandparents were kids, doctors still smoked cigarettes during office visits and if you played your cards right, they might prescribe whiskey as a medicine.

Thankfully, we’ve come a long way since then. In the last 50 years alone, computer technologies and the internet have enabled medical professionals to perform life-saving procedures that would have been unthinkable a few generations ago.

Just like our smartphones and tablets, this modern medicine continues to develop at a break-neck pace. Soon, getting quality medical care or managing a chronic condition might be possible without a single trip to the doctor’s office.

The leaders of this medical technology revolution are young, motivated, and look like they just stepped out of a college dorm room. Still, the concepts now in development are guaranteed to save lives while making medicine more affordable and accessible to all.

Scroll through the infographic below to meet three influential health entrepreneurs who are changing the face of medicine one mouse click at a time.
