This year, everything revolved around health. The pandemic created an acceleration for everything online. Hundreds of companies and institutions launched initiatives to develop the best possible life sciences software, application, or tool.
Software development specialists from around the globe are involved in different stages of many projects of healthcare or clinical trials technology. Meanwhile, forced by the circumstances, the industry adopts trends that quickly become absolute necessities. A recent study, elaborated by Frost & Sullivan forecasts a 64% increase in virtual healthcare demand in 2020 alone, with a sevenfold increase projected by 2025. These demands are met with impeccable healthcare software solutions.

Kundan Joshi continues in his article, customer-centric mobile apps are the most appropriate to be developed as practitioner on-demand apps to allow patients to book appointments or telemedicine apps, on-demand pharmacy delivery apps or educational apps. Many of the healthcare solutions use sophisticated AI or ML technologies, to create the best possible user journey.
