Technology in healthcare
Connectivity has created many new healthcare options in the industry, in order to simplify human living. From virtual health kiosks and portals to remote consultations and electronic personal health records, technology, being the backbone of every chronicle in work today, the change has arrived!
Today when convenience, quality and innovation walk hand in hand, the world of virtual components only etches the anatomy to serve consumers at their best.
Imagine going to a standard doctor’s appointment. The fight the wretched old traffic, parking hassles to get to the doctor’s office. Post which you have to wait in the lobby till you actually get to the exam room.
The doctor is yet to come…
Now that is definitely time consuming.
A decade ago, electronic health records were aggressively promoted for a number of reasons. Now we know why!
As the 2016 technology market is being undaunted with innovations, technology in healthcare is grazing into the untouched space, objectively pointing way towards value — based care.
Virtual Health Care Will Reform the Industry, If We Let It
To spread reach and expand service to patients who require access and for those who live in rural or remote areas with appropriate health solutions. With cybernetic health care options, health concerns can be addressed faster while virtually at home.
Less expensive and faster point of care (POC) testing
With the help new POC test platforms with capabilities such as molecular POC, connectivity features, biosensors and microfluidics is able to drastically improve turnaround time (5 to15 minutes) and allow for testing services to be performed in settings previously not feasible.
Next generation Wearables
In order to make the new generation more equipped “medical” or “clinical wearables” will get more refined in terms of their sensing, capturing and analysing functionalities, consequently making the clinical utility of such devices more actionable.
The EHR (electronic health record) way
Cheers to the cloud technology, healthcare professionals can now securely store and access patient data. This creates a better experience for the patient and doctor by making relevant details accessible to their respective healthcare professionals around the world.
3-D Printing is the answer
Although this has been used in the past, 3-D printing had limitations in terms of price and materials that refrained them for extensive use. As technology advances, 3-D printing will become more effective and useful in the healthcare field.
Experts are already working on using 3-D technology to build replacement organs and tissues, which will completely transform the healthcare field. There are also a wide set of examples that have built a new ray of light in human living.
Hence, as Steve Job says “Let’s go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday”
Let’s invent tomorrow…!
