Technology Bridges Gap between Patient and Doctor
Technology appears to be changing in the blink of an eye in the rapidly-paced world of today. Developments have transformed almost every industry from education to accounting, and there is no exception to the healthcare business. Technological innovation has opened up many interesting opportunities to give everyone a healthy and disease-free life. Looking at the data and reports, according to researchandmarkets.com, the global healthcare industry has gained a growth rate of 4.82 percent.
Many hospitals and clinics now provide online portals for patients to review and print medical records as necessary and even view medical animations to help patients better understand their conditions. Previously, many patients depended on specialist visits to perceive test results from complete blood counts to MRI imaging for anything. But now, well before their next trip to the doctor, they can sign in and review the test results. Instead of sweating test results for days or even weeks, this convenient option provides patients with almost instant peace of mind. Healthcare service providers perform surgery via AI, a new trend that provides access to surgical specialists at an affordable price. In addition, AI also enables to train new physicians on surgical methods and other procedures to eradicate the need to risk human patients. In short, from precise surgery to automated operations and protective medical intervention, such benefits will accumulate incrementally.
Healthcare seeks to adopt the blockchain to simplify and securely share medical records. Security is one of the main features of blockchain technology, making it easier to trace drug paths. Every single transaction attached to the block is immutable and time-stamped, making tracking a product easier for hospitals and health service providers and ensuring that the information cannot be modified.
Mobile health is another technology that will revolutionize the health sector. MHealth provides patients and providers with a number of ways to interact, enabling hospitals and rehabilitation centers to leverage mobility and recover clinical work movements and outcomes. The technology involves adopting wearable technologies, ranging from remote video interpretation to telemedicine and remote care use cases.
As technology progresses, its ability to scale access to more patients in health care will likely result in a longer lifespan for millions of people and enhanced quality of life. Convenience marries the most effective healthcare with patient involvement. Technology blurs the line between patient and physician and enables many to make 2019 their healthiest year yet!
