New waves of Covid-19 cases and rising casualties have encouraged the Iranian tech sector to help upgrade medical services and boost the development of digital health industry.
Farshad Allameh, a professor at Tehran University of Medical Sciences, said Iran’s healthcare sector offers considerable untapped potential for digital growth, reported.
“Knowledge-based companies and technology teams should value the opportunity, adapt their offerings to the medical sector’s demands and upgrade treatment services with smart ideas,” he said.
According to Allameh, Iran’s technology ecosystem is able to upgrade the treatment process, improve interactions between physicians and patients, and bolster the supply of medicines and treatment equipment by developing smart solutions.
Allameh noted that Iran has a massive health market and industry insiders should broaden their horizon to international levels.
Domestic knowledge-based firms and startups have developed smart platforms for supplying telemedicine, smart health platforms and remote care tools to help people cope with health conditions.
