The urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic has driven unprecedented digital transformation throughout healthcare. As stated in the UK's Department of Health and Social Care’s (DHSCs) latest strategy document, the measures necessary in managing the impact of COVID-19 have, in many ways, proven once again that ‘data saves lives’. The introduction of health measures to reliably track COVID-19 symptoms and reduce transmission rates remains essential to the continued reopening of society, and is an example of how technology can be applied to manage future health crises. Engineers are at the forefront of driving new modes of healthcare technology which will enable a patient-centred approach to health and well-being for the 21st century. Key technologies in this drive will take the form of advanced wearable devices, communication systems, and a new generation of surgical devices.
