It is estimated to increase to 80 in 2050. A long and healthy life brings along certain problems. Together with the increase of elderly population, there has been an increase in the prevalence of chronic diseases, need for qualified medical personnel and financial burden on the health system. As a result of new developments in health sciences, care services have become even more important. New methods, new approaches and advanced technologies have been used for patients to access less-costly and high-quality diagnosis and treatment services in a shorter time.
