The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is being felt across all sectors of the global economy, heralding the onset of clear and irreversible changes to come. Despite the full backing of governments and communities, public and private healthcare systems are fighting an uphill battle against a largely unknown enemy, while also coping with lack of adequate personnel and resources. In this article, we discussed how the robust stance taken by doctors and healthcare professionals during the present emergence of COVID-19 has nothing but cemented their role as true protectors of humanity. They have put their lives at risk by fighting this disease at the frontlines saving countless people. However, this has led to the quarantine of thousands of medical workers and full or partial closure of hospitals. The inability of curtailing contagion of medicos has partly crippled global healthcare. Further, the environmental hazards associated with PPE kit disposal has attracted worldwide concern. Tackling and improvising upon all such novel challenges is ultimately going to increase the price of healthcare delivery. Therefore, as part of this study, we feel that an overhaul of healthcare delivery through the establishment of a robust, collaborative, scalable, and agile digital healthcare infrastructure is a necessity in the post-COVID era.
