01 With new technologies such as genomic sequencing, it's becoming increasingly possible to tailor medical testing and treatment to individual patients' unique genetic profiles. This could lead to more targeted and effective healthcare.

Artificial intelligence:

03 The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated the adoption of telemedicine: remote consults and digital monitoring of patients. Medical testing can also be done remotely, with patients collecting samples at home and shipping them to labs for analysis.

Wearable devices:

04 As wearable health  devices (Apple Watch, FitBit, etc) become more sophisticated, they could provide a wealth of data that could be used to inform medical testing and treatment decisions. For example, continuous glucose monitoring could help diabetics better manage their condition.

05 Advances in technology are making it possible to conduct medical testing on-the-spot, without needing to send samples to a lab. This could lead to faster diagnoses and treatments, particularly in resource-limited settings.
