The public healthcare must improve their efficiency, quality, and accessibility with the help of digitalization.
FREMONT, CA: Digitalization should change the principles related to public health, but it must support and facilitate their execution. Digitalization is a set of tools that is an asset for the people's health, and it must be used to fulfill its aim and mission. Moreover, digitalization has not altered the health system's goal, which is to offer accessibility, equity, efficiency, and quality healthcare.
Many countries are dealing with various grace challenges like the burgeoning burden of non-communicable diseases, aging population, and many others. Therefore, it is necessary for the healthcare sector to have full knowledge of digital technologies' capabilities and use it to support and increase the efficiency of public health efforts.
Digital features which bolster public health action
The latest digital healthcare technologies available in the market that are used to improve public health are digital medicine, robotics genomics, and artificial intelligence (AI). However, the categorization of the digital technologies used in public health is hindered by the rapid speed in which they are developed. It also gets hindered due to the lack of data about the adoption, application, and impact of the tools. Therefore, it is necessary to maintain a conceptual framework as it will focus on describing the features and characteristics of digital technologies so that they can be implemented successfully.
Personalization and precision
The concept of Precision Public Health might get criticized, but the fact that such advancements in data analytics and genomic will permit them to target the patients more successfully and efficiently. There are also many genome-based applications that can customize primary and secondary prevention. Moreover, healthcare professionals' training will become easy and personalized with the help of artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
