The technologies set to gain from Covid-19

April 06, 2020

With every crisis, there emerges a new set of winners in the economic landscape. Telehealth is clearly a Covid-19 “gainer” along with remote working tools such as Zoom, Slack, and Microsoft Teams. The FCC pleasantly surprised everyone by announcing a $200 million investment plan for telehealth this past week. For healthcare providers, already the beneficiaries of $100 billion from the economic relief package of $2 trillion, the new focus on telehealth may just impart a new urgency to digital transformation initiatives.

Besides telehealth, other technologies will find new applications in the wake of the Covid-19 crisis. Mayo Clinic’s pilot program to use autonomous vehicles to deliver test kits is one such program. The importance of big data analytics in faster detection and response for future pandemics has given new meaning and purpose to supercomputing. I expect drones and quantum computing to drive a new wave of innovation in healthcare.

Not every new technology-led initiative will have positive outcomes. One such is the likely expansion of surveillance tools that rely on big tech firms to track and mitigate the spread of Covid-19 that may never get rolled back.

This week, on Thursday April 9 at 2 pm ET, I will be participating in a CHIME-hosted webinar with Ed Marx, my co-author for our upcoming book on digital transformation. We will be discussing a range of topics including persona development for digital product design. See you there.

Stay safe.
