Heath Technology has undergone a massive amount of change in the last decade or so. There are two main factors that are fueling this change. The first is obvious, the advancements in technology as a whole have allowed for the massive of health technology breakthroughs in recent years. The other factor influencing health technology are the types of patients that are using this technology. Baby Boomers are reaching the age of retirement and increasing the demand for care. This has created a demand for hospitals to upgrade their technologies to more effectively and efficiently handle the increase number of patients.
