Technology is constantly evolving the healthcare sector, due to which healthcare institutions are investing heavily in the latest platforms.
Fremont, CA:As we approach the two-year anniversary of the COVID-19 epidemic, it's reasonable to state that the healthcare industry's digitalization is accelerating at a never-before-seen rate. While this technological revolution was inevitable, the epidemic accelerated it, compelling healthcare companies to adapt fast or risk being left behind. Here are a few healthcare technology trends that will dominate 2022.
Artificial Intelligence: Artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming nearly every business, and healthcare is no different. By 2022, its impact is predicted to continue to expand as more companies and physicians employ advanced AI technologies to optimize the patient journey and achieve better health outcomes.With stress and burnout prevalent in healthcare, professionals devoting excessive time and energy to regular chores exacerbates the problem. By automating such duties, AI technology in healthcare can help ease these responsibilities, allowing up professionals to focus on providing exceptional care and services.
Remote Care and Telehealth: While the pandemic may be approaching endemic status (ideally), many of the changes it has wrought in health care delivery are permanent, none more so than telehealth and video conferencing. The use of virtual care has exploded in popularity over the last year, and this trend is likely to continue through 2022 and beyond, with up to 64 percent of global healthcare executives presently spending extensively in it.As remote care gains hold in the United States and throughout the world, it is projected to eventually supplant traditional in-person visits in the coming years. However, care providers must first guarantee that they are HIPAA compliant. While some limits were eased during the pandemic's peak to allow for more access to care, this will no longer be the case in the future. It is critical for healthcare companies to thoroughly analyze the applications they use to communicate with remote patients and to verify they comply with regulatory requirements.
Augment and Virtual Reality: When we reflect on this period of history, we will undoubtedly recall the pandemic's turmoil. However, not to be outdone, the metaverse's emergence will very certainly stand out as a zeitgeist-defining phenomenon as well. And, if Mark Zuckerberg is to be believed, our imagined journey into the past may be completely immersive, courtesy of enhanced virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) technology.
