Imagining technology possibilities: Healthcare
Talk about holistic. The entire healthcare industry is undergoing radical digitalisation from prevention to policy.
Consider the rise of the health conscious user. Taking wellbeing into their own digitally-savvy hands, these people track their own data, like heart rates and steps, then apply the results to seek specific insurance concessions and treatments. Even Common Everyday Patient is part of a new health-conscious trend, and logs on to demand services at a time, place and cost convenient to them.
At macro level, digital smarts - from remote monitoring of vital organs to migrating systems to the cloud - are reducing hospital admissions, bed stay lengths and paperwork. Artificial intelligence is being applied to diagnosis and prevention. APIs - where relevant snippets of data are borrowed from a massive database and accessed more readily in apps - enable patients to access their own records, referrals to be sent direct to providers.
All are on their way to becoming the norm. Patient, provider, insurer, hospital or government, technology is freeing up time and money for you to allocate more effectively.
There are challenges of course.
The collection, management and usage of data - especially medical records - requires sensitive leadership. Regulators and private enterprise wrangle the payoffs between higher levels of care with the need to regulate for privacy and security.
There’s also, naturally, the focus on health advancement over core system investment. However, a clear, customer-lead cloud strategy for innovation is now vital for the health industry’s own wellbeing. It’s already commonplace in other industries to have consolidated data on a massive scale, and share it across their enterprises freely. The benefits of having this power and agility to respond quickly to customers and the future of healthcare are immeasurable.
