Data & the Future of Physiotherapy

July 16th, 2019


Data and the future of Physiotherapy

We need to talk about data” was the title of the focused symposium that Physiopedia’s Rachel Lowe took part in at the recent WCPT Congress alongside her colleagues Heidi Jannenga, Andrew Walton and Karim Khan.  Rachel’s role was to talk about how data may influence the future of our profession.

Using data to develop healthcare solutions using Artificial Intelligence is hot. There is currently a lot of money going into this kind of work and the investment is expected to reach $6.6 billion by 2021, and it is predicted that the top AI applications may result in annual health care savings of $150 billion by 2026.

As a profession we have a history of being slow to adopt new technology.  Now is not the time to sit by and watch what happens in this field. This is happening now, this will impact our practice and we all need to get involved otherwise someone else will do it for us!
