5 inspiring TED talks about the future of healthcare

Linda Le Phan

When you think of the healthcare industry, you may think of employees with burnout, jobs that are tough but pay well, and all the crazy stories that nurses and doctors must experience everyday.

But what’s even more useful to know about healthcare is that as an industry it’s going through major and constant transformation due to all of the research that’s happening in various areas of health and because it’s a heavily-funded industry that’s currently very open to new technology. Just think about all of tech topics that people love to talk about like artificial intelligence, augmented reality and virtual reality, and wearables – all those things relate to the future of healthcare, too. Add that to the fact that the aging population will put an immense strain on the healthcare field in the years to come, the future of healthcare is looking really interesting.
