And so, in this slogging thread, we discussed what other ways technology has helped the community get back to normal after dealing with the virus.

This Slogging thread by Sara Pinto, Jack Boreham and M贸nica Freitas occurred in slogging's official #technology channel, and has been edited for readability.

How can tech reshape the post-pandemic world?

"Finnish health tech innovations and solutions are part of the diagnostic technology and applications that are reshaping healthcare as we emerge into a post-pandemic world."

Sara PintoMar 22, 2022, 11:39 PM

"From platforms that provide digital processes to shorten patient backlogs and manage staff time more effectively, personal monitors that help people take control of their own health, and a COVID-19 vaccine administered directly into the nose, that can be developed to use against future pandemics, Finnish innovations are leading the way in ground-breaking global health technology and solutions."

"COVID-19 and the latest wave of Omicron have resulted in global demand for diagnostic innovations and applications. As we emerge from the pandemic, people are increasingly taking control of their health, and patient and home monitoring devices developed in Finland are helping to empower a healthier life for many."

With the pandemic getting under control, we search for ways to get back to our old life.
In this case, Finland companies have invested in solutions regarding healthcare.

Jack Boreham Abeer Limarc Ambalina, in which ways did technology help you get back to normal?

Jack BorehamMar 24, 2022, 11:59 AM

Sara PintoGaming has always been a focal point for me; I use it as a normalization tool. It's a great way to relax and connect with friends. I know Limarc Ambalina will agree. Likewise, I used to play cod with Limarc during our meetings (we still need to do this!) But great times, gaming normalizes things!

Jack Boreham, that's a great way to make things a little more natural in difficult situations. Gaming is a good communication tool, and it's definitely a way to bring us closer!

Sara Pinto a vaccine administrated through the nose?! That's interesting.

M贸nica FreitasApr 1, 2022, 1:13 PM

Sara Pinto for me it was the SNS (national health system) app. It made a lot of things easier, especially during the pandemic. We can access a lot of data with just one app, when before it was a nightmare to have all our medical info.

Sara PintoApr 9, 2022, 1:38 PM

M贸nica Freitas, I thought so too! The way we adapted and innovated during the pandemic was extraordinary

M贸nica Freitas, I agree. Everything is more transparent and reachable. Most of the stuff you need to know in your appointments, you can find there. It was really useful

M贸nica FreitasApr 11, 2022, 10:04 AM

Sara Pinto it must be painful though. Being hit with a needle in your nose... PCR tests already hurt, let alone a needle 馃槀

Sara Pinto and it's such a big difference from how it used to be. We used to have these notebooks with all of our vaccine records and all. I don't even know where that is anymore. So the app makes it 10x better! And I feel like it even makes it easier for health professionals.

Sara PintoApr 11, 2022, 4:02 PM

M贸nica Freitas, exactly. It was an outdated system. We had to hold on to so many papers. It became messy. I definitely think it helped both parties. I hope they keep investing in the app

M贸nica FreitasApr 13, 2022, 2:39 PM

Sara Pinto same and I hope they'll make it easier to access for everyone, specifically older people that don't really get tech
