5 Ways Technology is Transforming Healthcare

July 29, 2020 14:05:06

The future of healthcare is transforming with the advance in digital healthcare technologies. There is therefore a need to familiarize yourself with the latest developments such as robotics, artificial intelligence, and nanotechnology to control the technology.

Furthermore, embracing new technology in healthcare will help win battles against AIDS, Ebola, and cancer. Digital technology will also help transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones. Healthcare has been changed greatly by technology in the following ways:

Through Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence has great potential to redesign healthcare completely. Al algorithms have the capability of mining medical records, creating drugs, and designing treatment plans in a faster way. Furthermore, supercomputer Atomwise is capable of rooting out therapies from a database of molecular structures. Artificial intelligence was recently used by Google’s DeepMind for breast cancer analysis. The algorithm was efficient as it outshined all the radiologists on pre-selected data sets in identifying breast cancer. If artificial intelligence is fully utilized, then there will be amazing improvements in healthcare.

Use of Healthcare Trackers, Wearables and Sensors

The future of healthcare is nearly connected to patients’ empowerment to take care of themselves via technology. Healthcare trackers, sensors and wearables can’t be left out on this list as these are great devices that can help you take control of your health. For instance, you can use Fitbit Ionic in monitoring your sleep and tracking your workouts. Besides, these devices help you manage your stress levels, cognitive abilities, and weight.

The essential thing about these tech-fuelled devices is that they help patients to take care of themselves. By using these devices, patients can monitor their health and share the results remotely with their medics.

Use of Medical Tricorder and Related Devices

Every physician needs to have a mighty and great tool that can diagnose and analyze every illness. When a tricorder was used by one physician to diagnose a patient, the device immediately listed all the crucial signs, diagnoses, and other parameters. The instrument became an automatic army knife for Swiss doctors. With the emergence of new technology, other similar devices such as Viatom CheckMe Pro, heart rate oxygen saturation, blood pressure, and temperature can now be easily measured.

Revolutions in Drug Development

Developing new drugs is involving and takes a lot of time. However, these methods can be improved using artificial intelligence and in silico (computational) trials. These technologies are going to dominate the pharmaceutical firms for years. The technologies will ensure that billions of drugs are tested on virtual patients within minutes. Some companies are also utilizing the power of artificial intelligence to develop new drugs in a shorter time.

Adopting Nanotechnology

In the coming years, nanoparticles and nanodevices will be operating as cancer treatment tools, drugs, minor surgeons, and delivery systems. Tiny and smart pills like the pill cam are already in use for colon exams in a non-invasive, patient-friendly way. Nanotechnology is also gaining some milestones inform of smart patches. The smart patch allows for continuous monitoring of wounds and even helps in stimulating wound healing.

We are headed for a brave new world powered by technology, and entities like Vivos Therapeutics Inc. are taking the lead in many these technologies readily available.
