Digital and Connected Healthcare Solutions
Technology enabled healthcare involves the convergence of health technology, digital, mobile telecommunications and media and is increasingly seen as an integral part of the solution to many of the challenges facing the health and wellness sectors. Thanks to new technologies and improved scientific knowledge, researchers are continuously challenging the limits of health innovation.
Digital technology is advancing and at the same time the demand for and cost of healthcare is rising. The need to adopt technology to help meet these challenges seems obvious because it enables patients, carers and healthcare professionals to access data and information more easily and improve the quality and outcomes of both health and social care. Digital and mobile health (mHealth) have a wide range of uses, from chronic care management to complex population health analysis. As healthcare shifts towards a patient-centred, outcome-based delivery model, mHealth will be an important partner in healthcare transformation.
What if patients request new prescriptions directly from our smartwatch, or get real-time text alerts that their blood pressure is too high? This way, the use of technology to manage health has the potential to improve their health and expectation is going to be high for smarter medical devices. Moreover, the industry needs to develop the right platforms, able to connect relevant data and to give immediate and comprehensive results to patients and healthcare professionals.
With the fast-paced wearable technology and gadget sector of eHealth expanding at a rapid rate, the key challenge facing eHealth now may be in developing data processing solutions that can keep up. It’s expected that between now and 2020, 34 billion connected devices will be in use worldwide, according to the new Internet of Things report and a large proportion of those will very certainly be devoted to health. Connected devices and health apps can make medicine more personalized, or preventive, hence more effective. Thanks to more accurate health indicators, both patients and physicians can be better informed about the patient physical condition, while medical remote monitoring should help improve coordination between healthcare professionals.
Mobile technology can empower patients and carers by giving them more control over their health and making them less dependent on HCPs. They can use digital technology to research information online, share experiences and identify treatment options. Its use in providing access to information and education is an important driver of patient engagement. Other notable developments are the availability of healthcare ‘bio-sensing’ wearables, such as digital blood pressure monitors and glucose sensors, and patient and provider access to real-time healthcare data and information. With the fast-paced wearable technology and gadget sector of eHealth expanding at a rapid rate, the key challenge facing eHealth now may be in developing data processing solutions that can keep up.
The capabilities of apps and wearables are improving as a result of developments in technology. Other aspects of the growing uses of digital technology are remote monitoring of changes in the health status of patients (home telehealth) and the use of digital messages to remind or alert patients to adhere to their long-term course of treatment.
Technology holds a central role in expanding the market for home health care. The goal of technology-enabled home care—the delivery of health diagnostics or therapeutics in a patient’s home—is to prevent or reduce the need for institutional care, alleviating the financial and emotional burden upon society and individuals. The most important value offered by technology-enabled home care is preventing or delaying the shift of patients to acute- or long-term-care settings. Expanded technology-enabled home care offers a promising pathway to bend the cost curve for ever-growing health care expenditures.
Innovations in science and technology today will transform healthcare tomorrow, in areas such as software platforms, digital imaging and advanced digital sensors.
Given the wide range of new technological developments, predicting how the market will evolve and which technologies will have the most impact on healthcare delivery is challenging. The challenge is to provide solutions that are both efficient and engaging, and show clear benefits for healthcare providers and administrators.
