Health is regarded as one of the global challenges for mankind. Healthcare is a complex system that covers processes of diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of diseases. It constitutes a fundamental pillar of the modern society. Modern healthcare is technological healthcare. Technology is everywhere. This book focuses on twenty-one emerging technologies in the healthcare industry. An emerging technology is one that holds the promise of creating a new economic engine and is trans-industrial. Emerging technological trends are rapidly transforming businesses in general and healthcare in particular in ways that we find hard to imagine. Artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, robots, blockchain, cloud computing, Internet of things (IoT), and augmented & virtual reality are some of the technologies at the heart of this revolution and are covered in this book. The convergence of these technologies is upon us and will have a huge impact on the patient experience
