In the medical sector, EHR is being combined with AI and voice recognition so that they can have the medical information of their patient to provide them with a better diagnosis.

FREMONT, CA: In the medical sector, electronic health records (EHR) are firmly established, but they must look at the latest development in the medical field to sustain the latest trends. Here are some of the emerging trends in the pharmaceutical sector. 

1. Merging Artificial Intelligence and Voice Recognition with EHR

Doctors have already seen how artificial intelligence (AI) can be used to assist them while they conduct diagnosis or identify the condition of the patient. Many medical organizations are trying to combine EHR and AI through voice recognition. 

With this voice recognition technology, the doctor can ask about the patient's medical history, like the last record of the iron level in their blood test. The system will notify the physicians about the information they wanted to know and even tell them whether they are healthy or not. While taking care of patients utilizing voice commands can benefit them because they will have full information about them, making it easy to diagnose them.  Top 10 Patient Communication Solution Companies - 2020

2. Increasing Patient Engagement

One of the significant benefits of applying EHR is its platform, which has every patient's information required by the physicians. Furthermore, the system also permits the doctors to supervise the patients even when they are discharged from the hospital. For instance, the patients can be monitored when they are at home. The connected medical wearable devices collect data from their patients, and these are managed by the EHR platform so the information can be used for the benefit of the patient. 

To boost patient engagement and decrease the manual tasks of the administrative staff members, the facilities rely on the EHR platform. Moreover, many patients are tech-savvy, so it becomes easy to provide them with mobile services, for example, reminding them about their medicines or check-ups through text messages.
