Redox exists because healthcare needs technology. We need it to help clinicians work more efficiently and health systems improve their services, but most importantly, we need technology in order to give patients the best possible care.
The lack of technology in healthcare is not for lack of the technology itself—there are literally thousands of companies who have developed brilliant ways to improve clinician workflows and patient care. The problem is that healthcare uses legacy systems whicharen't compatible with today's technology, and overhauling an entire industry to be more technologically advanced isn't as easy as it sounds ( ...and it doesn't even sound easy in the first place).
The truth is that we're in the middle of a healthcare technology revolution, and while that sounds grandiose, all it means is that we're figuring out how to implement more advanced ways of taking care of people in an industry that isn't designed to accept new tools easily.
It's going to take some time to realize the full potential of healthcare technology. Until then, it's up to the healthcare community to push for change and increase awareness of the incredible solutions out there. After all, the more we know about what tools could be at our disposal, the more we can advocate for their use.
With that, here are 70 of the most promising healthcare technology companies who are defining the future of healthcare.
