More than ever before there are products being produced by medical technology companies, which are helping to deliver faster and more efficient patient care. New devices such as medical PCs and tablets, make traditional medical information such as patient data, financial, and clinical data easily accessible to all health care participants. But just how can new technology aid in improving services to patients.
Cutting edge technology has taken medicine to the next level, and made telemedicine a reality. It’s now possible to transmit audio and video images of patients and have virtual links.
New technology has the potential to improve efficiency in the following ways:
- Speed up prognosis: Doctors have real-time access to medical records, as well as to the results of X-rays, ultrasounds, and other tests that they need to make a speedy yet accurate prognosis. Doctors are also able to deliver better care, since they can manage all patient data in a single, unified interface.
- Lower costs: The new technology allows patients and doctors to interact remotely, and some hospitals now handle patient ‘visits’ virtually via videoconference. Consultations with specialists can be done face-to-face using tablets or PCs. The costs attached to these interactions are lower than in-person consultations.
- Increase patient-doctor collaboration: Mobile applications have made it possible for people to access health care wherever they happen to be. Patients can view and analyze their health information, and this improves collaboration with doctors, as they have relevant data at their fingertips.
