FREMONT, CA: While healthcare has traditionally been slow to adopt technology, the industry is around to witness meaningful and vital changes over the next several years. Leading organizations are already redefining themselves with digital transformation, applied to their main functional areas with a customer-centric approach.

Internet of Medical Things

Several devices and mobile apps are playing a significant role in tracking and preventing chronic illnesses for most of the patients and their doctors. By connecting IoT development with telemedicine and telehealth technologies, a new Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has emerged. This kind of approach comprises the use of several wearables, comprising ECG and EKG monitors. Many other general medical measurements can also be taken, like skin temperature, glucose level, and blood pressure readings.

Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality

By the advent of virtual and augmented reality solutions will lead to significant advances in healthcare technologies. The progress that can be imagined a decade ago is now being implemented.  Augmented reality systems in healthcare offer one of the most spontaneous options. By providing 3D information on real-world scenes, AR permits the surgeons and doctors to stay grounded in actual procedures while having ready access to all the data available through several other emerging technologies. Students can use overlays to access information in an interface where they can quickly explore.

Telemedicine

Telemedicine is enhancing the diagnosis and treatment by making it easier for the patients to get access to specialists, too. The availability of electronic records has made it simpler to forward documents to the specialists. Data exchange platforms are changing what the people think about telemedicine. At present, the available video chat platforms that dominate the sector serve immense purposes. For instance, hospitals have been able to minimize or restrict the readmission rates completely by offering real-time monitoring of patients outside the office. With the advent of wearable devices, it's typical for remote monitoring systems to include in post-discharge plans for patients.
