the Healthcare Sector
The biggest trends in digital design for healthcare
Despite living in constant evolution in terms of equipment, drugs, techniques and treatments, the healthcare sector has been somewhat less receptive to digital transformation than other sectors of activity.
Bureaucratic, legislative and training challenges for professionals and patients slowed down investment initiatives in HealthTech start-ups.

On the other hand, and obviously linked to that, it is one of the industries that has received the most funding in recent years.
