Healthcare is one industry that that touches everyone. With the onset of digital age, technology is affecting not just the latest men’s fashion trends and men new style but also the healthcare industry where there is a massive transformation on track, we present the top five upcoming trends in the healthcare industry.
1. Medical Treatments through Augmented Reality:
Doctors are now actively using the AR (Augmented Reality) procedures to analyze and accordingly diagnose various ailments. The AR training is now actively being imparted to medical professionals that are helping them to integrate, populate and visualize the patient history and the diagnostic representations right in front of their eye screens.
2. Personalization of the Healthcare:
As the detailed information of the patients is readily available to the healthcare professionals, inefficiencies in the healthcare procedures have been massively reduced. Doctors are now consulting the patients on a real-time basis, irrespective of the physical location. Doctor to patient and Doctor to Doctor remote communication has become fast, transparent and precisely ‘real-time’.
3. Online Health Communities:
With the emergence of social media, thousands of online health communities have been formed either by the patients or by their peers. In these OHC’s (Online Health Communities) patients and peers share their experiences on real-time basis helping others like them who are intending to undergo the treatments or are suffering from the similar diseases. Patient experiences, ratings of doctors and even feedback related to their treatments at the healthcare institutions are shared on a real-time basis.
4. Wearable Devices for Health-Conscious people:
People can now track their health themselves, on real-time basis just by wearing “health-tracking devices” that monitor their heartbeat, calories, sugar level, eyesight, anxiety levels and much more. They can accordingly take the preventive and the corrective measures, without waiting for the services to arrive.
5. Smart Hospitals are on-ground:
Right from smart patient beds to robotic surgical procedures, everything has undergone a change. Monitoring health of a patient is just not limited to hospital nurses, smart machines are tracking and diagnosing the patients 24X7, minimizing the chances of human lapses and errors.
