Emerging Technologies Transforming Healthcare

Technology advances every day, and you may wonder how it affects your health. The technological revolution creates new opportunities and advantages for this sector. You may be wondering if new technologies can improve the healthcare system, and the answer is yes.

Many times we tend to think “but it is just technology, beyond the new machinery in the industry, what other problems could it solve?” Technology contributes to solving problems that arise every day in patient care, health treatments, source information and much more. For example, as a source of information: We all access the Internet daily, whether to browse, go to a specific website or enter an app to search for information on a wide range of topics. Many of the searches are related to medical issues, about symptoms or even medications. With the Covid-19 crisis we are experiencing, web searches and app use in the industry have increased significantly. But why not go to a doctor instead? Of course! But there is no doubt that digital technology has influenced users to have more capacity to make decisions. We also see great improvements in patient care thanks to technology. How? Thanks to advances in cybersecurity and software, patient care has improved its quality, now accessing medical records is even easier and is available to doctors when they need it, it is easier to update and assign corresponding treatments to ensure of good care, in addition to having digital apps that help make medical appointments, cancel or order medications in a more efficient way.

Innovation in technology has helped a lot in healthcare, allowing advances in the quality of life of all people and numerous facilities for both healthcare workers and patients. Without further ado, today we will share with you some technologies that are revolutionizing the industry:

  1. Healthcare and cloud solutions: Numerous hospitals and healthcare institutions are leveraging advancements observed in electronic medical records to enhance their operational efficiency. They are increasingly turning to innovative solutions such as cloud technology, analytics, and mobile applications to further streamline their digital In particular, cloud technology plays a pivotal role in revolutionizing the medical industry by offering secure and scalable storage solutions, facilitating seamless data sharing among healthcare professionals, and enabling advanced analytics for personalized patient care. Also, hybrid cloud environments in particular offer security features that can help organizations maintain compliance with HIPAA and other regulations while giving them the flexibility they need to move data around to where it needs to go. This flexibility also provides healthcare providers with more options for updating existing legacy systems and workflows. Cloud adoption opens up opportunities for organizations to use AI and machine learning tools too, which can help uncover hidden patterns and insights that improve how care is delivered.(IBM,2024).
  1. AI and diagnoses: Employing artificial intelligence (AI) to analyze data, such as medical images, and construct disease models holds promise for assisting clinicians in making more accurate diagnoses For example, recent work from IBM Research(2024) has shown that AI can be used to recognize and interpret brain activity patterns in MRIs to track the progression of neurodegenerative illnesses, such as Huntington’s disease.For example, computers and artificial intelligence models are particularly valuable in medical imaging because they can help convert images into numbers and detect trends. These innovations can help radiologists and other doctors manage the incredibly large volume of images they have to review, identifying high-value findings and bringing abnormalities to their attention. Also, the implementation of AI in their platforms has evolved the way in which they can help their patients, since through its implementation they can also identify patterns, search for diagnoses, diseases or any type of data in a simpler way, as IMB study explained “life sciences organizations are using technology to transform how clinical trials are being performed. Smart devices, telehealth visits and sensors are being used to support decentralized trials that make data collection more efficient and convenient for the people who participate”
  1. EHR systems: Using EHR systems or other technologies to communicate with patients and develop care plans is common practice today. Laptops and tablets have become as common as stethoscopes in healthcare settings, and there is growing evidence that electronic information systems are having a positive impact on accessing and sharing health information. However, a major challenge for EHRs is the collection of large amounts Of unintegrated and unstandardized data. Today, most healthcare organizations have an abundance of data that they could use to improve their procedures and business practices, but they may not have the tools or knowledge to gain insight from that data. Newer technologies such as the cloud, blockchain, and machine learning-based artificial intelligence tools can help healthcare organizations discover patterns in large volumes of data while making data safer and easier to manage. As the healthcare industry faces new challenges, technology solutions help managers to improve performance, increase collaboration between systems and control costs. As demands on organizations increase, health technology can simplify processes, automate tasks and improve workflows on a scale that is not possible for humans As hospitals and healthcare providers adopt value-based healthcare reimbursement models, these solutions help healthcare professionals improve patient care, create better experiences and reduce burnout.
