Transformation technology Trends In Healthcare

  However, Workforce shortages, mounting workloads and economic pressures are challenging healthcare providers worldwide to improve operational efficiencies and innovate care delivery models. Increasingly, socially conscious healthcare leaders also recognize their responsibility to improve healthcare equality. So, the technology take over not entirely is not so bad after all as well as the need to reduce the sector’s carbon footprint for the preservation of the planet’s health.

Why?!

But Why you ask I can’t blame you their taking jobs in all But healthcare industry is changing rapidly and we must change with it the use of mobile applications, and it’s no surprise that healthcare app development is a rapidly growing trend. Mobile apps are quickly becoming the go-to solution for healthcare providers, patients, and other stakeholders. Mobile apps provide convenience, improved communication, and more efficient care delivery for those in need.

What to Expect in Healthcare Technology in 2023?

As the healthcare industry continues to embrace technology, there are several trends to watch out for in #2023. According to industry experts, we can expect to see increased adoption of cloud, artificial intelligence, and robotics in healthcare. To help address these challenges and ambitions here are some technology’s that are largely using them right now.

The rise of the connected patient

One of the most exciting trends in healthcare application development is the rise of the “connected patient”. Through the use of mobile apps, wearable devices, and other connected health technologies, patients can now access their own medical data and be more involved in their own care.
Connected patient apps allow users to track their vitals, connect with their doctor or other healthcare providers, get personalized advice and feedback, and stay informed on the latest news in their medical condition.
By having access to these applications, patients are able to take a more active role in managing their health, improving outcomes, and staying informed about their healthcare options.

Digital upskilling through continuous training and education

Workflow automation can go a long way toward alleviating the burden on overstretched hospital departments. But healthcare professionals also need appropriate training and education to keep up with technological advances. With 1 in 5 healthcare professionals having left the field since the pandemic began [3], adequately training new staff is especially critical to ensure continuity, safety and quality of care delivery

The years ahead will therefore see a growing demand for ‘education as a service’, supporting ongoing education and continuous learning as the pace of digital transformation in healthcare further accelerates.

In addition, hospitals can drive proficient use of new and existing technologies by appointing ‘super users’ who act as early adopters and ambassadors that other staff members can turn to when they have questions or need help combining the best of in-person training with self-directed online learning – from self-paced tutorials such as e-learning, webinars, and gamification to more advanced delivery methods, such as augmented reality and virtual reality.

Vendor-neutral and interoperable informatics solutions

As healthcare becomes increasingly connected, different systems and devices need to be able to ‘speak’ to each other to create seamless experiences for patients and healthcare professionals. Hospitals typically procure equipment and devices from many different vendors, which has often resulted in fragmented digital infrastructure – and as a result, fragmented healthcare experiences. 

To help overcome this fragmentation, we expect to see increased adoption of vendor-neutral and interoperable informatics solutions in 2023 and beyond.
For example, what makes the concept of a centralized radiology operations command center so powerful is not only that it can distribute expertise across sites (see trend #3), but also that it can connect to imaging equipment from multiple vendors. That means radiology departments can orchestrate and standardize imaging operations across sites, irrespective of the brand and type of equipment that has been installed.

Similarly, vendor-neutral real-time data analytics and radiology workflow solutions can help improve operational performance and reduce costs in radiology departments, while supporting continuous optimization.

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

We can’t speak about the future of technology in healthcare without touching on the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT). It’s one of the top technological trends in healthcare for 2023. So, what exactly is IoMT? Firstly, IoMT is often referred to as IoT – medical and wearable devices, sensors, and other healthcare-related technology integrated with cloud systems. The medical industry expects this network of connected devices to continue to grow in the healthcare landscape.

Some of the most popular devices that can connect to IoMT systems are wearable devices such as Smartwatches and pulsometers which collect data through sensors and report the wearer’s vital signs such as temperature, heart rate, and blood pressure. Physicians can retrieve this data for review, treatment, and diagnosis.

Healthcare IT Market

The importance of investing in new medical technologies can be easily established by analyzing the market. According to Grand View Research, the global healthcare IT market was valued at USD 167.7 billion in 2022. From 2023 to 2030, it is projected to grow at a CAGR of 17.9%.

Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is on the rise in healthcare. It utilizes the latest advances in information technology to chronicle and record health data from patients electronically. Analysis of this data is then sent to healthcare providers to assess to make decisions on care.

Forbes magazine says RPI “helps improve quality of life by being cost-effective and reducing the chance of hospitalization.”

Furthermore, it increases providers’ efficiencies and can also be used to monitor a wide range of conditions as well as keep tabs on weight, blood pressure, lung capacity, pulse, oxygen saturation in blood, blood glucose, temperature, and pain management, to name just a few of its merits

In this regard, companies like inVerita are leading the way in developing software solutions that utilize these technologies to improve patient care and streamline healthcare processes.

There will be a focus on securing the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) to protect against cyberattacks and ensure patient safety.

Asset tracking and mobile healthcare technology will also be on the rise as providers look for ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs.

Finally, digital transformation will continue to be a priority for healthcare organizations, and technology providers have an opportunity to help advance this process by offering solutions that meet the needs of these organizations.
Stay ahead of the curve with these top healthcare tech trends to watch in 2023
