HR, Benefits & business
Technology is continuously evolving; healthcare is also trying to keep up with the trend. We all know that the healthcare industry is unpredictable and scientists continue to make efforts in treatments and medicines. It is both exciting and unsettling. However, these bring us new hope for medical breakthroughs. Here are the trends that we should watch out for in 2019.
One of the trends that we’ll be seeing more in 2019 is the blockchain systems. Essentially, blockchain technology is a new method of keeping the same amount of digital data which will only take less space. Because of this, it will allow you to distribute digital info but not copying it. It was developed for the Bitcoin, a digital currency.
The impact of the blockchain system in healthcare is beneficial in the future for it’ll help in transferring the data across health organisations that the Electronic Medical Records cannot do. EMR has many restrictions between its compatibility and the health systems. For the health systems to share the information with another network, then they should use the same EMR hosting system.
With the blockchain system, the healthcare system can easily share information without the said limitations. It will help in keeping the data of the patient secured while making it more easier for medical practitioners to share the details on providing patient care.
Smartphones in Classrooms
Technology shouldn’t be limited to how it will change the hospital systems but on how it will improve the procedures in the educational system. With the use of smartphones, future doctors can now be more interactive by sharing lessons in real-time wherein they can learn together. Smartphones can help them in enhancing the way they learn.
Though traditional learning is not totally out of the picture, however, with how schools allow their students to cooperate in this way can also help them in preparing for all the technology that they will rely on and use once they face the real world.
Of course, we couldn’t talk about the future without mentioning AI. AI will continuously change the healthcare system in many ways. It will connect humans and technology wherein we can now monitor human activity more compared before. It can help doctors in remote areas of the world where there's lack of medical practitioners, where the doctor can be in the field without physically being there.
AI can also help in enhancing the treatments given to patients such as radiology, wherein it’ll come a time that doctors don’t have to take any invasive procedures to diagnose patients.
With these trends in healthcare, this 2019, providing medical attention to people can help in making their lives better. It’ll also help if you think of subscribing to an insurance plan which can aid you with your health concerns.
