Hospital managements want to shift focus to patient-centered care. This refers to understanding the patients experience better. Healthcare professionals, want feedback from patients to assess their satisfaction level which in turn helps determine hospital ratings. Hospitals are installing digital wayfinding kiosks and have interactive tablets for patients thus offering greater convenience. Shopping for healthcare is now comparable to buying cars. This is because it entails searching the internet, reading reviews, comparing prices and looking for other quality metrics. Therefore, hospitals want to ensure that the content available for patients to make a comparison is insightful and engaging.

Innovative technology

Innovative technology is enabling healthcare professionals to organize data and resources more effectively. Interpreting, storing and analyzing data related to patients and hospital management has become more important than ever.  Taking calculated decisions based on such strategic information is helping the healthcare industry become more lean, competent and competitive. It’s further allowing stakeholders to personalize care while reducing costs and scaling operations. Here are the top four technologies being used by the healthcare industry:

Wearable Tracking Devices

Globally, more people are now wearing tracking devices round the clock to monitor physical activity, sleep patterns, calorie consumption, etc. Users of such devices can set personal goals to ensure they lead a healthy lifestyle. Hospital management can record health patterns in detail allowing doctors to make informed decisions about treatment options. Furthermore, easy access to this information provides pharmaceutical companies an edge to target products and services to a specific target audience.

Healthcare Education

Augmented reality is changing the way medicine is being taught.  Labs are transitioning from 2D to 3D models to teach students medical procedures. This technology can take data from CT and MRI scans that can be transformed into 3D holographic images. Interacting with organs and tissues this close provides and in depth and intuitive understanding of the human body. The various angles and depth at which the anatomy can be seen and manipulated is impressive. This progress has never been seen in medicine before and is paving way for better patient welfare as well as management.

Increased Data Demands

Clinicians and administrative leaders are hungry for data to make informed decisions and plan better. For example, they can decide which populations the hospital should serve, financial and budgetary decisions including profit margins and base costs, as well as spending on advertising and branding. More data about patients will help allocate resources to serve them better.
