The COVID-19 pandemic has helped push the healthcare industry further into the digital movement, leading to a reimagining of conventional hospital systems and driving an increase of technology professionals to the industry to capture new market opportunities for distributed healthcare and cutting-edge technological innovation.

A new report from pharmaceutical company Novartis shows the healthcare and pharma industries becoming an increasingly desirable career destination for tech professionals, with 72% of tech professionals more likely to consider the field compared to before the pandemic.
