The surveyed younger healthcare professionals said they want to see diagnostic capabilities from any location using a smartphone. For instance, " the use of a portable ultrasound app (35%), the use of chatbots to provide patients with answers to basic medical questions via an automated service (33%), and the portability of healthcare data between hospitals or practices (31%)."

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health also predicted that as many as 24,000 additional allied health professionals and support care staff are needed to meet the demands of the country’s ageing population and to operate hospitals, clinics, and eldercare centres by 2030.
