Abstract Of Speech

Healthcare Industry Trends

Do you know that there are more than 700 million people are aged 65+ in the world today –approximately 9% of the entire global population. That leads the trend that we are facing with today’s health situation: more people are living with chronic conditions. Globally, approximately one in three of all adults suffer from multiple chronic conditions (MCCs), and that is indicating work overloads for clinician. As you can see, data will continue to grow in parallel with the chronic disease growth around the world.

Chronic disease management and treatment is imaging-intensive, driving the need for storage in healthcare. Medical imaging used in chronic diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease includes CT scans, MRI scans, PET scans, angiograms, and others. As chronic disease and our ability to handle these diseases increase, so does the data to support patient care. In addition, continuous monitoring and activity also generates data that help the clinicians measure progression. With new data types and the changes in healthcare that COVID-19 has brought, healthcare organizations are quickly moving into a new phase where they need to manage the short term spikes in activity with continuous patient care.
