How is IBM Influencing Telemedicine?
Healthcare delivery is getting easier as IBM helps telemedicine providers leverage the power of AI.
Fremont, CA: The scope of telemedicine technology has surged in recent times. Rapid development in network infrastructure and increased use of smartphones has resulted in the emergence of healthcare companies that offer telemedicine facilities, which include remote medical consultations. IBM's AI-backed solutions have displayed a lot of potential in helping healthcare companies in the telemedicine domain deliver effective services. Leveraging advancing technology has become easier for ambitious telemedicine companies who are adopting IBM's environment to develop pioneering healthcare solutions.
Innovation and technological infrastructure are at the core of telemedicine companies. Only when the companies have robust and operational IT capabilities, they can build high-quality platforms that cater to patients. IBM has been helping several telemedicine startups add technology-backed features to their healthcare offerings. With IBM’s expertise in a host of areas, it has been able to provide comprehensive assistance to telemedicine startups that are looking to scale up services or incorporate AI-driven healthcare assistants.
The healthcare sector has always had to spare its resources for administrative functions. IBM's artificial intelligence suite, Watson, is now being used by several telemedicine companies to develop virtual medical assistants on their apps and platforms. With AI-backed virtual assistants, companies are able to reduce administrative duties that caregivers have been doing. Caregivers are thus able to save time and focus on delivering better healthcare to patients on apps and online platforms.
Effective tools for communication are also a major requirement in the case of telemedicine services. Service providers need to interact with remote patients to deliver healthcare benefits. Inefficiency in communication often results in a delay in providing services and affects customer experience. IBM's technology has been helping telemedicine providers develop smart communication tools that eliminate the need for telephonic conversations. The solutions also equip telemedicine apps and platforms to develop features for scheduling appointments and instructing patients. IBM's cloud environment allows telemedicine companies to build facilities that can be scaled easily and accessed seamlessly by patients irrespective of their location. IBM's flexibility and support capabilities can empower telemedicine service providers significantly.
