Med-tech sector sees digital architecture of hospitals transform with wireless technology and connected health to gain ground. This is because the sector has realised the benefits of technology that has helped patients faster access to medical attention.
According to Arvind Vaishnav, vice president and head of Philips Innovation Campus (PIC) Bengaluru, “We expect more digital disruption in healthcare, bringing new care models and better services online. The digital architecture of hospitals will in fact change significantly, adopting wireless technologies, interoperability, and a seamless shift of monitoring from hospital to home. This will in turn enable more meaningful innovations, such as continuous monitoring using wearable or implanted medical devices, incorporating smart cameras for vital sign measurements, or linking to contextual information from non-medical consumer devices such as voice interfaces, fitness trackers, smart phones etc.
The healthcare industry outlook today has dramatically evolved the medical care landscape for patients and practitioners. Emerging healthcare technology trends play a critical role in alleviating the most pressing issue in the industry: workforce shortages. Today, technology has seamlessly integrated itself for enhancing patient care while simultaneously helping reduce the workload on healthcare providers, noted Mudit Dandwate CEO & co-founder, Dozee.
Over the last year, the industry has witnessed several health tech companies carve their efforts toward solving problems that stemmed from the aftermath of the global pandemic. Remote patient monitoring adoption is one such area where we saw tremendous growth as the industry began its transition from providing curative to preventive care. An impact study by Sattva Consulting shows that India can save 110,000+ lives annually if connected beds are scaled across public healthcare facilities, he added.
The capabilities in India around healthcare informatics will be crucial as it will underpin the fusion of healthcare, IT, and business administration, seamlessly guiding all aspects of the care continuum. This will further help the healthcare industry realize the quadruple aim of improving patient experience, achieving better health outcomes, reducing the cost of care, and improving staff experience, added the vice president and head of Philips Innovation Campus
As 2022 rolls forward, it’s imperative for healthcare leaders to embrace emerging healthcare technology trends to enhance patient experiences and outcomes. The future of health tech will continue to foster making caregiving more connected, accessible, and a lot more agile, said Dandwate.
