The world is so unpredictable, and the recent coronavirus pandemic has given it a nod. Though healthcare workers worldwide have done an exceptional job, the lack of pandemic management has urged the world to develop next-generation technologies to improve healthcare.
Top Robotic companies in USA come together to conduct a report which says the healthcare industry is projected to reach 600 billion dollars by 2025. This collaborative research shows, there will be a massive opportunity for robotic companies to be a part of this historic transformation to build a healthy world.
Here are the top trends in the healthcare industry that will revamp the world’s healthcare.
Arguably the most advanced technology by the time, Artificial Intelligence is expected to eliminate the labor-intensive and time-consuming operations in the healthcare industry. It will enrich the healthcare industry with assistive solutions such as real-time diagnosis, treatment, and disease prevention. With the integration of artificial intelligence, healthcare providers may enjoy the ease of serving and benefits like streamlined operations, hassle-free clinical workflow management, advanced surgery assistance, and medicational diagnostics.
Internet of Medical Things
IoMT is like the backbone of advanced tools designed for cardiac risk diagnosis and measurements. An emerging healthcare startup develops CardioEchoAl, heart ultrasound tools. It primarily leverages deep learning algorithms to copy the steps performed by a professional cardiologist at the time of definitive heart ultrasound diagnosis, boosting the analysis of 2D TTE. Leveraging the IoMT in association with artificial intelligence and other emerging trends, the healthcare industry will reduce the examination time and eliminate hurdles in rendering quality patient care.
Besides AI and VR, IoMT in integration with robotics is expected to set marks in the historical transformation.
The covid-19 pandemic has proved that telemedicine is the future of pharmacy. Today, with the social distancing and other restrictions, Telemedicine has seemed to be the way forward for the smooth and easy-going healthcare industry. The pros of telemedicine have influenced the world, including many governments, healthcare systems, and patients, to adopt telemedicine.
As far as the change is concerned, telemedicine will significantly change the way pharmaceutical companies deal with patients. It will allow access in even the farthest areas in the country and promote better health. It will eliminate the risk of wrong medication along with timely delivery of even the most delicate medicines.
Big Data and Analytics
The global health industry collects tons of data each day. While proper management of patient records, diagnosis, and other types of data seems a big challenge, Big Data and Analytics trends are projected to simplify the entire process and protect the data in digital form.
The emerging digitalization of the healthcare industry is revamping medical data collection, storage, and diagnostic techniques, resulting in a huge volume of unfiltered data. This data is expected to increase explicitly in the coming years, supporting the need for Big Data and Analytic tools.
It will surely improve the patient-focused services, detect diseases and bring better insights into disease mechanisms. Along with that, the big data & analytics tools are supposed to monitor and improve the quality of healthcare services.
Immersive technologies such as AR/VR and MR have proved their potential in transformation. If we talk about the adoption and implementation of these technologies in the healthcare industry, they are gonna bring a huge change that will lead the medical industry for the next 4 to 5 decades.
VR can contribute to the development of top-notch applications in the healthcare industry, from rehabilitation therapy to exposure therapy anxiety disorder and other counseling therapies aiding in better cognitive and physical rehabilitation.
AR/VR will also play a great role in healthcare education. Immersive technologies will make their way into surgery, for better holographic images and scans of far-reaching parts such as the mind and back.
3D printing is undoubtedly a revolutionary trend in the emerging healthcare industry. This latest trend is gaining traction in the industry for multiple processes, like lightweight prosthetics printing, bionics, and printing fracture repairs. 3D printing is inexpensive, lightweight and the smart material ensures improved care delivery with reduced costs.
3D printing technologies are emerging each day. A range of feature-rich and advanced patient-specific models or organs and surgical tools have been developed, using the patient’s own medical imaging.
Another section of these tools includes personalized surgical instruments that are designed & developed to give a boost to surgeon’s dexterity and support better surgery outcomes promoting less traumatic and faster procedures.
It is surely the most awaited trend, not just in healthcare but other industries across. Blockchain provides next-generation security and traceability for different applications and procedures in the healthcare industry.
Some of these may include electronic medical records, remote patient monitoring, telemedicine supply chain, and health insurance claim processing. Blockchain technology supports hassle-free management of EHRs and FHIRchain for streamlined clinical data.
The healthcare industry trends are pushed by startups. Since there is no other industry getting as much pace as the healthcare industry, it is witnessing more startups than ever. Most startups have been made towards digital healthcare supporting future trends.
