Automation in Healthcare

7th April 2016

Advancement in computers and robotics has changed every aspect of our lives for greater good. We all are hooked on to automation that has changed our lives enormously. To be precise, healthcare and medicine is one big fact of it that has the exceptional impact of those innovation and technologies.

Today, patient can access to overflowing healthcare information, programmed machines diagnose diseases in seconds and phone apps can assess a patient’s risk to diseases. Research has been going on to find best ways to automate patient care outside hospitals and clinics, technologies to provide real-time feedback, guidance to patients and alert cares before health issues escalate. The final reach out is to improve healthcare for better lives.

Few Examples of General Technologies That Improved Medicine Practice

Patients can have test results at hands, make appointments and connect to their physicians virtually, allowing patients to directly manage all their healthcare needs and directly manage it.

Wearable technology and Internal Devices for Doctors

Wearable technology has become more common and is taking a prominent role in healthcare. Technologies such as Google Glass, Digital Stethoscope, AV300 vein viewing System, EarlySense System, VScan by GE, Infrared Thermometer, Wacom Intuos, ECG Monitor, Fitbit etc have taken a toll to easy and quick patient check ups and results. Surgeons can perform procedures personally monitoring vitals from start to end. Technology such as Google Glass allows users to record video and audio from their point of view allowing users to understand and monitor physical behaviours of patients daily. These data will help physicians and specialists’ make better decisions and make patients cure faster.

Internal Devices For Doctors

Increasing innovation in modern technology will continue to give new tools to healthcare providers. Today, healthcare providers can gather vital statistics and real-time data of patients using implantable and ingestible devices. These devices provide an accurate, up to second information enhancing the physician ability to treat their patient better and quick.
