Latest Trends in Healthcare Technology Giving New Direction to the Healthcare Industry
Healthcare apps that combine AR with AI can be very beneficial to both doctors and patients. In medical practice or training, AR can be incorporated to improve safety, help administer injections, and assist in major operations' performance
Fremont, CA: Digital and mobile technologies are transforming the health care sector. Healthcare organizations can leverage new technologies to be cost-effective, provide better care, and improve patient health outcomes. Parallelly, technology innovations can enable patients to better manage and control their health as well as medical information.
Here we are exploring the latest trends in Healthcare Technology:
Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is an infrastructure comprising connected medical devices, software applications, sensors, and healthcare IT systems that engage in medical monitoring, testing, and diagnostics. Few examples of IoT-enabled medical devices include sticking plasters that can monitor body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure, and wearable devices like smartwatches with health-related apps that can track whether the person is taking pills timely, and other health status. Healthcare institutions are using portable biosensors to analyze patient data for diagnosing health problems. Thus, IoMT can contribute to improving patient health outcomes.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines like decision making and visual perception. Types of AI utilized in the healthcare sector include robot doctors, surgeons or dentists, virtual nursing assistants, and voice-to-text transcriptions. Machine Learning (ML) is a subset of AI using statistical techniques and algorithms to allow computer systems to improve with incoming data, make decisions and identify patterns, with minimum human direction. ML-enabled medical devices enable doctors to make correct diagnoses, improve risk assessment, and provide more effective treatments.
Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)
Healthcare apps that combine AR with AI can be very beneficial to both doctors and patients. In medical practice or training, AR can be incorporated to improve safety, help administer injections, and assist in major operations' performance. Similarly, virtual reality (VR) can be useful in training clinicians through simulation, educating patients, and aiding with treatment.
