FREMONT, CA: Over the past decade, technology has transformed the world by changing everything from the way people watch television to the way they hail taxis. Now a new revolution, driven by technologies, is set to improve healthcare at home forever. With the rapidly evolving technology, the potential for transforming healthcare at home is also growing tremendously. With the support of advanced technologies, healthcare organizations are able to provide exceptional levels of patient care along with the comfort of home. This will promote patient satisfaction and cost control in healthcare services.
As per reports, at-home healthcare is expected to reach 349.8 billion dollars from 227.5 billion dollars by 2020 globally. Transformation is the only motivator, and technology is the key driver. The industry is transforming, and home healthcare providers are adapting to an increasingly digitalized world to remain competitive. It is essential that home healthcare organizations approach this transformation as a journey, with the right technology. With this, the companies can increase the efficiency of processes, in turn, improve customer and caregiver satisfaction while reducing costs.
Automation of healthcare services ensures that technology is seamless and remains invisible, allowing home healthcare providers to concentrate on offering the best care possible. It is essential for these companies to adopt smart automation to stay competitive. In addition, AI also is providing predictive caregiver scheduling, predictive home appointment, and predictive cancellation, which contributes to no-show appointment prevention, allowing an overall improved patient experience.
Sensor technology could be placed on the home premises and can provide alerts to caregivers in case of any emergency or abnormality. They can also send notifications if the patient misses their medicines or diets. Patients having chronic disease conditions can remain at home, and their activities can be monitored by the care providers to gain vital insights for the needed treatment. Some home health service providers analyze data in massive amounts and use it to take preventive measures before a medical situation can turn into a severe problem.
