Top 5 Medical Innovations to look for in 2022

Top 5 Medical Innovations to look for in 2022

At the end of each year, I’m trying to give you a sneak peek into what we can expect as we head into the next year.

In 2021, the pandemic only accelerated some already established trends in digital health.

In 2022 I expect to see even more emphasis on A.I. solutions, remote care, and at-home tests, as the point of care keeps shifting to wherever the patient is.

    I agree that giving insurance companies access to everyone’s data could create the problems you described. However, I am OK with a company creating an insurance that targets healthy people and therefore gives them a discount, kind of like what we see with car insurers, there are some car insurance companies that only provide insurance to people perfect driving record.

    I would love to join a healthy user discount insurance company that only provides for people who eat well and exercise.

    Very informative video. Thanks

  23. Manuel Serrano Gil on July 15, 2022 at 3:19 am

    I agree Bertalan. Future for cvd is: abdominal breathing biofeedback (iot textile abdominal sensors) shaping resonance breathing curve and hrv (i.e at elitehrv app) and cardiac coherence (at inner balance app) for an improved lung-heart-brain sync and funtion

  24. Ruber Santy on July 15, 2022 at 3:24 am

    Hi bertalan , as iam studying in mbbs so my question is it will be worth in future or not because algorithms will replace everything in future ? Im so confused

  25. PhotoboothsLK on July 15, 2022 at 3:25 am

    Highly Under-rated! Love watching these.

  26. sebastian ring on July 15, 2022 at 3:26 am

    please keep the idea of ethnic differences in mind and level of health disparities that plague people of color

  27. sunil on July 15, 2022 at 3:27 am

    extremely insightful

    Excellent video as always. Just a few things to consider regarding Digital Health Insurance:

    1/ The "distopian future" scenario needs a more refined analysis starting with the current situation as a base case and indicator. Insurance companies could already put a much greater emphasis on risk factors and apply current medical knowledge to calculate premiums tailored to individual customers. The fact is that they don’t do it as much as they already could, which puts in question whether predictive technologies will have the detrimental impact that is often described. A good example is how they price their long-term care insurance policies without any real consideration or process to estimate the level of risk they’re actually covering. I won’t go into the details, but insurance companies are not yet up to speed on how much they could already do with current health data starting with hospital health data, life trajectories, gender, etc. This doesn’t mean that things won’t change, as new technologies might eventually become so routine that it will be an obvious decision factor, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.

    2/ The problem with new technologies in healthcare is that, before they can deliver all the benefits that their vendors claim, they need to survive the very chaotic and gritty nature of healthcare delivery at the point of care. Let’s not forget that new tech always comes loaded with a rosy narrative that is pitched by vendors with very limited or not robust evidence. We can already see today how challenging it is to capture patient data, let alone act on it. The jury’s still out on whether big data solutions, AI, etc. will overcome not only the various barriers that face any new solution in healthcare (ie, legacy practice, professional protectionism, etc.), but also establish that they provide data that is reliable enough that it can back up evidence-based medicine. We saw how IBM Watson failed to deliver: So many glorious presentations, but so little clinical evidence. Just looking at the current situation, we can assume that we will still have to sort out the old problem of garbage-in/garbage-out. Be sure that payers will not miss on that option, so at best we’re talking about consumer products or services, ie, out-of-pocket stuff that is generally used (ie, paid for) by high-income people who are health-conscious, which is usually not the population with the greatest health needs or risks as well established with life expectancy across socio-economic classes.

    3/ When considering how insurance companies might react with the advent of greater ability to identify and capture early on health problems, including eventually providing reliable prognosis, you need to keep in mind that insurance is defined by law as a contract intended to provide financial security against a risk, ie, a potential event in the future, ie, something bad that could happen but also could never happen (eg, house fire). There will eventually be some degree of statistical predictability, etc., but it still needs to be considered a risk vs. something we know will happen. The concept of risk is fundamental to the validity of an insurance contract. If we were to arrive at a stage where health technology were to become so reliable that prognosis would provide very strong level of certainty, the problem will not be that insurance companies would be able to pick and choose, including refusing coverage, but that an insurance contract would not be valid, as it would not meet the criteria of protecting against a risk. You can’t buy (or be forced to sell) insurance to protect you against an event that would be certain to take place in the future. There’s case law on this point, as insurance companies regularly try to get out of their commitment and go to court to nullify a contract based on the fact that the loss incurred was certain.

    As always, "the devil is in the detail." 😄

    I do believe in empowering patients, it’s so important as medical error is the third leading cause of death and further maims 1 percent of the population a year. However tests are not reliable. For example UTI tests give false negatives 25 percent of the time. Ordering prescription’s online maybe the way forward. For example Scotland dropped HIV rates by over 90 percent by allowing people to order prep online.

    Just WOW! I look forward to more Innovations in Medicine and Health Care!
