How Digital Transformation is Redefining the Healthcare Industry
August 26, 2020
Gone are the days when you must book for your doctor’s appointment and wait for your turn in the hospital. With hospitals and care providers turning digital, you no longer have to struggle to get an appointment or wait longer to meet your doctor or get your reports.
Healthcare Digital Transformation and emerging technologies have brought a fundamental change in the way the healthcare industry functions. With customers and patients of today leaning more into digital methods to receive care, the healthcare sector is transforming into a customer-driven era. This new era of healthcare offers convenience, quality, and affordability and in-turn enhances the overall patient-provider relationship.
In this blog, we will take you through the top technologies that will improve experiences for care providers, insurers, and patients shortly.
Emerging technologies changing the future of healthcare
Emerging technologies help healthcare providers to transform from a system-driven model to a patient-centric model. Here are the top trends that play a crucial role in building a more customer-centric healthcare system.
Artificial intelligence automates and simplifies tasks such as CT scans, X-rays, analysing test reports and eliminates mundane data entry work. Machine learning technology and automation make it easy to find patients’ records and analyse them in a convenient and faster manner. This, in turn, improves customer service and satisfaction.
The healthcare industry deals with a lot of sensitive customer data, which needs to be secured. Blockchain plays a significant role in protecting data from external forces when it comes to Digital Transformation for healthcare. Insurance companies and healthcare providers mainly use this technology to save records from getting tampered.
Telemedicine allows patients to receive care at their convenient location and time, in just a few clicks. There are various telemedicine solutions and healthcare application development initiatives that enable patients to receive care services at home, interact with their doctor online, describe their symptoms, and get the prescriptions. This saves a lot of time for the customers and removes the hustle of waiting to get treated.
Big data helps in effectively analyzing and managing patient records. Big data software can be used to monitor current and past drug prescriptions and health conditions and generate alerts in case of irregularities. This technology can help in estimating future admission rates, manage healthcare facilities, and facilitate preventive care.
IoT and Wearables
Health-monitoring wearables and IoT devices have been around for a while. Digital healthcare solutions like connected devices will continue to enhance patient care in the coming years. The advanced applications of IoT devices and wearables include preventative healthcare, which will consist of prediction and prevention of serious epidemic diseases to a great extent.
