Artificial intelligence – Changing the role of medical devices in patient care
Partha Marella - Executive Vice President | March 13, 2019
960 Views

Traditionally, medical devices were restricted to giving a certain set of outputs for a complimentary set of inputs, which would be used as information by doctors to make decisions. The accuracy of decisions would be purely at the professional’s discretion.

But as healthcare becomes more specialized and complex, quality and attention to detail is struggling to keep up with patient requirements.The key to bridging this gap lies in medical technology (Medtech) and how AI, IoT and Analytics can be used to enhance the scope of traditional devices used by both healthcare professionals as well as patients.With intelligence powering Medtech, decision making becomes more certain, preventive care is more achievable, and patient centricity is front and center.

The only way to find out how Big Data is making the world a better place is by tracing its uses in healthcare. As per HIMSS, the amount of healthcare data being generated is increasing at an exponential rate of 48% a year, hence, healthcare organizations are looking for ways to manage and leverage the same.

To better understand the impact of Big Data and analytics, we can segment the healthcare payer organization into three operational areas, i.e., front office, back office, and middle office.

Blockchain - A Panacea for Healthcare Systems
Shivendra Singh Yadav - Product Leader, Digital & Analytics | February 22, 2019

Blockchain technology has already made its way to the healthcare sector, and this is only the beginning for future possibilities. Healthcare majors are still trying to figure out what this technology means for them.

There are some really interesting ways in which blockchain technology can improve healthcare operations. But they might not be a cure all for the industry today. Solutions like Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) came into the scenario to provide automation and healthcare process digitization, but gradually organizations realized the challenges of reporting and lack of collaboration in EMRs. These systems are designed in siloes, with no single protocol being followed by different EMR solution providers, resulting in a duplication of efforts.

While it is evident that technology is reshaping the healthcare domain, it’s good to keep in mind this is a marathon, and not a sprint. Organizations and entities are vetting how the technology can better support their operations, while future applications will certainly be discovered along the way. It’ll be a fascinating process to watch.
