Accelerate Your Digital Transformation in Healthcare

Let’s put digital tools and technologies to work for efficient and effective healthcare service.

The global COVID-19 Pandemic has spotlighted the importance of digital technologies. Digital transformation no longer provides a new perspective to doing things, but it is about changing the habit of doing things – the healthcare industry is no exception.

Healthcare digital transformation was a reply to the need generated by a concourse of an aging population, increasing chronic illnesses, and rising healthcare costs. However, the Pandemic has forced digital transformation in the healthcare industry. The macro trends that were already underway had now become drivers of digital transformation.

Reasons we need to accelerate healthcare digital transformation journey,

  • As patients are looking for on-demand healthcare services, the healthcare industry must adopt mobile technology.
  • Big data plays a pivotal role in aggregating information and analyzing it for patterns and trends for the future. Using big data wisely helps in minimizing medication errors, facilitating preventive care, and hiring better staff.
  • Virtual Reality is becoming new normal to treat patients. VR technology is being used to treat several medical ailments, from pain to anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder to stroke.
  • Wearable technology is providing enough health data to doctors and forcing users to focus on prevention and maintenance. Healthcare companies need to be proactive in investing in wearable technology devices.
  • Predictive healthcare also needs due attention. Information gathered through big data helps healthcare providers to recommend and develop healthy lifestyles that prevent illnesses or diseases from becoming life-threatening problems in the future.

Artificial Intelligence is more than a trend in healthcare digital transformation. Nurse robots, friendly hospital droids, chatbots, and virtual health assistants are helping healthcare institutes in myriad ways.

Healthcare Digital Transformation for Effective Medical Care

Integrating the digital ecosystem in healthcare allows the delivery of medical care beyond hospitals and clinics. Information technology and equipment innovation reshape the healthcare industry. It extends medical care and treatment in our homes and at workplaces.

In-Hospital

  • The use of digital tools and technology enables the healthcare industry to offer cost-efficient care, provide high-quality performance, and save more lives.
  • Connected devices and robotic surgery devices have made operating rooms more sophisticated and smarter.
  • Technology in combination with practitioners focuses on preventing deteriorating health conditions, speeding up the healing process, and enhancing the quality of treatment.
  • Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) integrated into hospital processes track patients, staff, and medical equipment.

In-Clinic

  • Medical software for clinics doubles up as Electronic Medical Records (EMR) or Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems.
  • It keeps a digital version of medical charts and maintains the complete medical and treatment history of patients.
  • Doctors can access these records anytime, from anywhere, and on any device speeding up the process of patient examination and treatment.
  • Handheld devices like blood pressure monitors, portable ECG machines, Glucometers, labs-on-chip, etc., assist for accurate diagnosis.

In-Home

  • Healthcare technology plays a crucial role in increasing health awareness amongst people as it is simple to prevent the problems than to treat them.
  • Home medical devices, digital assistants, mobile health apps, and telemedicine help extend medical care to patients at their homes.
  • Remote or virtual healthcare is another aspect of providing care and treatment to patients suffering from chronic diseases.

On-Body

  • Your physical location does not matter; wearable devices track your physical activity, behavior and monitor your health status continuously.
  • Activity trackers, mobile sports applications, smartwatches, and other IoT-connected devices ensure you are safe and responsive.

On-body technology solutions like implants and implanted microchips are used for emergencies for quickly accessing vital patient information, especially when the patient is unresponsive or unconscious.

Features of Healthcare Digital Transformation

Telehealth
Technologies such as patient portals, telemedicine, mobile health (mHealth), video conferencing, remote patient monitoring, and more have subsequently transformed patient interaction with healthcare providers.
Artificial Intelligence
AI is used in applications like medical imaging, precision medicine, drug discovery, and genomics. Additionally, AI is used in chatbots, virtual assistants, and droids like Moxi for assisting nurses in routine tasks.
Big Data
A large number of data sources generate a considerable amount of data in the healthcare industry. Big data helps manage and analyze that data to provide actionable insights, real-time alerts, and informed decision-making.
Medical Records
EHR or EMR offers 100% accurate and decentralized data. It contains Patient information like history, blood group, illnesses, etc. Patients can manage and control access to their data using apps.
Patient Analytics
The use of EHR to manage patient data has a scope of human error due to manual data entry. Technologies like Big data, wearables and analytics generate, collect, manage, and analyze data.
Wearable Technology
It provides preventive care by empowering patients to monitor their health and track their physical activity. These devices are designed to alert users and send alerts to doctors or family physicians during emergencies.
Virtual Reality
Virtual Reality is changing the way of treating patients. It is a safe, convenient, cost-effective, and efficient alternative to drugs. Healthcare providers prefer it to treat chronic pain, post-traumatic stress, anxiety, and stroke.
Internet of Things (IoT)
IoT-based wearable devices are already being used to track data from critical patients. Besides, hospitals are also using it for asset management, like real-time location tracking of nebulizers, wheelchairs, oxygen pumps, etc.
