The annual Global Digital Health 100, recognizing the most innovative health technology companies from around the world has today been announced by The Journal of mHealth.
The announcement of the 2020 Global Digital Health 100 lists Axial3D as a global Healthcare Technology leader. The medical 3D printing company’s game-changing deployment of machine learning algorithms within the 3D printing process drastically speeds up production time.
Now in its sixth year, the annual Global Digital Health 100 is one of the HealthTech industry’s foremost technology award programs, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship. It recognizes and supports health technology companies that are demonstrating the greatest potential to change the way that healthcare is delivered.
Surgeons working with Axial3D have reported increased levels of patient understanding, better intra-team communication, and positive patient outcomes when using a 3D printed anatomical model in planning for surgery.
Recognizing Innovation and Emerging Technologies in Healthcare
Providing valuable insight on emerging technology trends from across the healthcare continuum, the Global Digital Health 100 has consistently identified early-stage solution providers that have gone on to become some of the world’s most successful health technology companies, including Babylon Health, SilverCloud Health, One Medical, and Butterfly Network – making it an essential resource for industry professionals and investors alike.
The diversity of this year’s list stands out immediately, with new entrants from all sides of the technology spectrum, targeting just about every corner of healthcare. The honouree companies offer technologies across a range of categories including; clinical solutions, wearable technologies, 3D printing, healthcare applications, medical devices, virtual reality and data analytics. These are all solutions and services that are transforming, or have the potential to transform and disrupt the way in which healthcare is delivered.
Emerging Trends in Health Technology
One of the biggest trends from this year’s 100 is the growing adoption of data-led services across nearly all facets of healthcare. From automating critical, but repetitive, tasks for clinicians to speeding up the process of 3D printing anatomical models, the growing application of artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques across healthcare represents a maturing industry.
Roger Johnston, CEO at Axial3D said “Axial3D being listed as a global leader of healthcare technology on the Global Digital Health 100 is a great recognition of the change in surgical planning being driven by our team. This announcement shows the real value that our patient-specific 3D anatomical models are adding to the patient journey. With nearly 8 million complex procedures taking place each year, the need for 3D models for surgical planning is great, but it is only with the automation of the model creation process that this potential can be realized.”
“Today, the legacy suppliers in the market often take weeks to produce a single model which really limits the number of surgical procedures where 3D printing can be viably used for pre-operative planning. Axial3D is fundamentally and uniquely addressing this limitation so that our anatomical models are delivered to surgeons within a few days rather than weeks.”
Commenting on the announcement Matthew Driver, Editor-in-Chief at The Journal of mHealth, said: “The Global Digital Health 100 recognizes and celebrates the companies and technology leaders within the industry that are raising the bar and shaping the future of healthcare delivery. We are proud to support the growth and success of this thriving technology industry which is being led by the honourees of these awards.”
“As a leading publication in Europe and North America The Journal of mHealth gains a unique perspective from our relationship with emerging health technology markets around the World. This enables us to bring one of the most comprehensive lists of technology providers who are representative of the latest technology trends from across the healthcare industry.”
