May 2021

In the next issue of Medical Technology, we debate the controversial subject of Covid-19 vaccine passports to find out why this hot topic has sparked privacy concerns, and explore the growing market for digital health coaching tools that help support patients outside of a clinical setting.

Also in the next issue, following news that Healthcare app review company Orcha found that 80% of healthcare apps used by NHS trusts do not meet the necessary standards, we investigate the complex challenge of regulating these apps and ask what can be done to ensure the NHS is only using the safest and effective healthcare apps; plus, as DePuy Synthes celebrates 125 years of operation, we take a look at the company’s history of orthopaedic device innovation.

Elsewhere, we examine whether advanced data analytics can be used to predict device recalls and track trends in device safety, and finally, we explore the limitations of pulse oximeters when measuring levels of oxygen saturation in the blood.
