It’s a year since COVID-19 hit its first peak in the UK. People and businesses have had to navigate their way through three national lockdowns, each time turning to digital means to keep the wheels of life turning. Certain aspects of our life have translated seamlessly online, but what about health tech? Traditionally, we have been so dependent on face-to-face interaction, yet the technology in healthcare has been available? How has the adoption of technology stepped up to the demands of a locked down population? How well did we do? What progression was made and how prepared would we be if COVID-20 were to happen?
