HIPAA compliant systems to efficiently manage patient and provider data
Healthcare has weathered the most significant political waves of the last fifteen years with costs increasing unchecked and a struggle brewing between technology and privacy. As new technology is adopted by healthcare organizations, a variety of new drivers are emerging that will affect how IT is used to enable better care.
Chatbots have become mainstream in a number of industries including the retail and service sectors; however, they've not become widely adopted in Healthcare. This is poised to change, as cost-saving benefits and realtime interactions are ever-increasing points of discussion.
Other areas of artificial intelligence are gaining ground, as healthcare organizations begin to apply the technology to medical diagnoses and image recognition. The key challenge remains for AI applications to gain the trust of providers, payers and patients.
Big data and analytics are playing a significant role in business, and healthcare is no exception. Big data and analytics is enabling predictions about the health of the patient, probable complications, outcomes of recommendations devised for them and possible readmission.
The primary focus of big data and analytics in healthcare is on better outcomes for patients, but it will also facilitate the refinement of regulatory compliance and settlements.
Wearables are becoming increasingly prevalent in healthcare, and with the proliferation of smartphones, tablets and fitness trackers, the trend doesn't appear to be slowing down.
The FDA is loosening its regulations for certain mobile health technologies to reflect a "new, more modern approach to digital health products." Healthcare providers and consumers are embracing digital health technology such as fitness trackers and mobile health apps, and that clinical evidence supported the fact that consumers can experience better outcomes when they are better informed about health. Technology is helping people become informed and foster innovation.
The healthcare industry is poised to see integration and adoption of IoT technology in hospitals and healthcare centers. At the surface, hospitals and pharmacies are realizing the need for IoT to optimize their inventory management. But that's just the beginning. Healthcare specialists can make use of this technology to monitor patients at home, in the office or some other part of the world, ultimately reducing the cost of treatment.
Furthermore, healthcare providers and consumers are embracing digital health technology such as fitness trackers and mobile health apps, and that clinical evidence supports the fact that consumers can experience better outcomes when they are better informed about health.
Cloud Computing is a revolutionary step in the healthcare sector, allowing patients and doctors to increase accessibility. Patients can view their health outcomes online without waiting long for a doctor’s appointment. In 2018, it is expected that 60% of communication with the healthcare providers and facilities will be done through mobile devices.
Doctors and hospitals have started shifting away from paper-based record filing and moving this activity to cloud environments. While Cloud Computing enables access to medical records and results 24/7, privacy remains a major obstacle in deploying new technology in the industry.
