Since 2020, the health tech landscape keeps changing. A sudden spotlight was fixed on the industry. But also, more and more people became interested in the latest technology and healthtech developments. Specifically, how they could be used as we entered the unchartered territory of a 21st century pandemic. And while some industries floundered, healthtech flourished.
