The Next Great Advantage of Digital Services
Digital services have become ubiquitous. We use them to communicate, get news, entertain ourselves, and stay connected with family and friends. Digital services have also made it possible to record medical events and share them with loved ones, including your doctors. With artificial intelligence, it is possible to use a digital service to both communicate with and be contacted by your doctor.
How will digital services change healthcare?
With the ability to record and share medical information, people can now make better decisions about their health and seek out more relevant providers to their needs and preferences. This can lead to better patient outcomes, lower healthcare costs, and more personalized care. People can also use digital services to understand their health better, discover new providers and services, and advocate for better care. Digital services are changing healthcare in both immediate and long-term ways.
The Evolution of Healthcare Software
Healthcare software has undergone many transitions since its inception. The evolution of healthcare software shows that it can be a very dynamic, evolving industry. Healthcare software such as EMR, PACS, and HIPAA have all been in the headlines for the wrong reasons. EHRs, for example, have undergone many transitions over the years. EHR systems were once costly, often with expensive and proprietary hardware. Later, they became Web-based, with expensive, proprietary software. Finally, EHRs are more affordable and more accessible, thanks to a powerful combination of software and digital technology.
Disruption in Healthcare
With the ability to capture medical data, companies are applying AI to healthcare. Some of these companies partner with large health insurers to provide reports on a person’s health and future cost. These reports can help people decide what treatment to seek and how to pay for it. AI-powered apps are also helping people manage their health. Some apps can provide information about a person’s ongoing health and associated costs. Others can help with decision-making, guiding the best treatment options for a given condition.
The Rise of AI in Healthcare
AI uses software to identify patterns in data and make predictions. Applications of AI are now being used in healthcare. For example, AI can be used to decide which patients should receive a particular treatment, detect symptoms that might indicate a disease, and monitor a person’s health to help identify potential problems and monitor progress. AI can also help identify potential patients for clinical trials and improve care coordination between providers.
The Bottom LineDr. Jordan Sudberg believes that digital services are changing healthcare. Consumers record and share their medical data, making it easier to manage their health and get in touch with their doctors. AI is now being applied to healthcare, helping providers identify patients and improve care coordination. These advances will significantly impact the cost and quality of care people receive.
