The technology horizon: Preliminary review on technologies impacting the future health and social care workforce – Centre for Workforce Intelligence [UK] – October 2013

“This paper considers five types of technology:

therapeutic technology – technologies used in the treatment of disease and injury, including pharmacological, surgical and psychological therapies
diagnostic technology – technologies for identifying diseases and other conditions
enabling technology – technologies that mitigate the impact of disease or disability
preventive technology – technologies that reduce the risk or severity of illness and injury
organisational technology – technologies supporting alternative health and social care delivery configurations and organisational design.

This report has been prepared in conjunction with the University of Manchester, a partner of the CfWI horizon scanning programme. It is based on simple interpretation and extrapolation of trends, and does not intend to predict the future.”
