Understanding the Technologies Reshaping the Patient Experience
Healthcare tends to lag behind other markets in terms of defending against cyberattacks. But the proliferation of IoT technologies, coupled with the rapid growth of cyberattacks in healthcare, has more organizations elevating data security as a top strategic priority.
There are now more than 320 million wearable devices being used by healthcare organizations to track everything from physical activity and vital signs to prescription consumption and more. Integrating — and securing — these devices will present an increasingly central challenge in the coming years.1
Whether it’s moving patients, transporting supply items or enabling remote examinations, robots are game-changers — particularly in light of intensifying talent shortages and turnover rates.
This technology is rocketing forward faster than predicted. 3D printing appears to be on track for replicating organs for use in testing drugs — and, eventually, in actual transplants. Applications inside the hospital are far-reaching.
Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI and machine learning will unleash new diagnostic and predictive capabilities that will greatly improve patient outcomes. AI is also unlocking new automation capabilities to alleviate tedious burdens, elevate roles and help fight burnout.
Augmented and Virtual Reality
The pandemic placed an increased focus on going digital and the need for remote collaboration tools. To meet the need, Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) will continue to grow at a rapid pace, with recent studies projecting more than 30% annual CAGR over the next four years.2
The amount of environmental, hereditary, behavioral and population health data pouring into hospitals is overwhelming. Making analytical use of it requires computing power and resources hospitals don’t have yet.
Robotic prosthetics are already disrupting the healthcare market with future technology being designed to receive brain signals. Full exoskeletons may even help paralyzed patients regain motor skills.
