Top 5 2022 Tech Trends In Healthcare

Digital technology changes the way businesses and society interact with the world, and the healthcare industry is no different. In recent years, technology including VR/AR, AI, robotics, and nanotechnology have all been hot topics of conversation, and 2022 is no different. Although many of the tech trends in healthcare aren’t new technology, they’ve only just begun to be thoroughly understood and applied in practical settings.

Virtual Reality

You may be familiar with Virtual Reality (VR) from playing games, and although the technology isn’t new, its potential has only recently been embraced within the healthcare industry. In particular, VR is being used to train surgeons to perform operations. You may be asking why it’s worth spending the money, especially as surgeons have been trained long before VR entered the scene. Well, VR developers including Immersive Touch and Osso VR demonstrate that VR-trained surgeons are 230% more efficient than traditionally-trained surgeons.

Digital Training

Digital training, especially online training, grew in popularity throughout the global pandemic. More nurses are turning to online universities to fulfil their degree requirements to advance their nursing careers. Further, technology is being used to put students into medical simulations like Body Interact, which can be accessed on one of these touch screen laptops for students


Nanotechnology refers to engineering and science on the nanometre stage and can be used in healthcare to treat cancers, carry out surgeries, and deliver drugs. However, there’s still plenty of development left to happen before we get there. However, devices like the PillCam are already allowing colon examinations to be carried out noninvasively, which is always a bonus. Although we have a long way to go yet, it’s safe to say that nanotechnology is here to keep trending through the remainder of the 2020s.

Medical Tricorder

Everything is easier when everything is accessible under one software or device, which used to be a dream in the medical profession. Fortunately, thanks to innovations in technology, such all-in-one systems exist. For example, the Viatom CheckMe Pro is capable of measuring blood pressure, heart rate, oxygen saturation, temperature, and much more. By using this device, healthcare providers can examine a person’s metrics by hooking them up to a palm-sized device, which saves time.


Robotics has seen a speedy evolution over recent years, and it’s only continuing through 2022. Robots are already capable of completing a range of jobs including simple cleaning tasks and complex surgeries. In practice, robotics has been used to reduce loneliness in patients with mental health issues and children with chronic health conditions. At the moment, the Paro, Pepper, Buddy, and ElliQ robots are all improving lives, and many of them come equipped with cameras, sensors, and microphones, which allow them to be controlled easily.

Technology has changed how the world operates, and it’s only going to continue evolving as we move forward. Therefore, industries need to embrace the change and improve their services, which the healthcare industry has done perfectly. Although we’re still in the early days, the road ahead is exciting.
