At the 2019 Irish Medical Surgical Trade Association (IMSTA) annual conference it announced its plans to double in size as it moves into the growing field of Digital Health.
Mark McIntyre, IMSTA Chairman and Senior Director Boston Scientific explained, "It covers everything from the digital infrastructure that is already being put in place in health systems, to cutting edge research into robotic prostheses, rehabilitation assisted through virtual reality and remote healthcare through mobile devices." Mark continues, "IMSTA is ideally-placed to help the healthcare system in Ireland create the right landscape for digital health to flourish here and bring about benefits to patients, clinicians and citizens.”
“It is projected that the Digital Health Sector will quadruple in size by 2022 to €140 billion euro,” said Clare Harney, IMSTA Director for Digital Health Transformation. “Ireland is already the second largest exporter of medtech products in Europe. We have the companies, the skills, the expertise and the people to lead the Digital Health transformation of health services worldwide.”
