Technology has created many benefits for our lifestyle. Life is easier; you have choices that are best suited for you; and you save costs and valuable time. These benefits of technology are now also changing how we manage our healthcare journey at our fingertips.
In today’s tech-savvy world, you use your smartphone to manage work, active and social time, and to buy the latest gadget or a late-night meal. Your smartphone keeps you connected to your network and everything you love.
Rapid innovation is changing the way we live
Technology has fundamentally shifted how we live, from our communication to entertainment and how we do business. South Africa has 80 million mobile subscribers and the average user spends three hours each day on their device.
This digital migration is leading to exponential innovation globally. Previously, world-shifting developments might happen every hundred years or so. Today, new technologies are released almost every week. They are also reinventing how you can access healthcare services.
