From Telehealth to VR

Healthcare has accelerated in its use of innovative technology more than it ever has because of the pandemic response. Delivering healthcare had to overcome the challenge of in-person classic medical delivery. The aggressive tech industry is moving quickly into the health sector, and it's lucrative. 20% of the US's total GDP means there are big opportunities. Some of the biggest challenges are to take this highly regulated industry and move it forward, but I think the opportunity and sheer weight of the financial incentives will continue on a path of fast innovation.
