Technology is transforming the way we live, from the way we work right down to the way we order food. The transformative power of the web and associated technology is almost unparalleled: it's right up there with fire, or the wheel, in terms of the effect on society.
Health is a big part of our daily lives; we worry that the pain in our chest is something serious, or that our diet isn't healthy enough. London-based Cera is disrupting the social care industry by introducing technology into the mix, but it has its eyes on a larger, more inclusive goal: "omnipresent healthcare."
As with many other industries, technology is having a huge effect on the health and medical sector, and so, naturally, startups have sprung up to take advantage of the changing nature of healthcare. One that is poised to make a big difference is HS., an accelerator for the medtech industry.
