Patients locked at home due to COVID-19 are calling for convenience, transparency, and access in healthcare technologies. The recurring question of where healthcare software is going can therefore be distributed among these three pain-points:

  • Data-security procedures
  • Technology improvements in:
    • Machine learning
    • Artificial intelligence
    • Internet of things
    • Wearable devices

Healthcare is not new to these technological advancements, but there is always the increase in expectations and demand. It’s our constant objective to push software to new heights. 

Virtual Healthcare, Telemedicine and Remote Patient Access

Companies that embrace technologies such as cloud collaboration software, smartphone apps for their workforce, and IoT devices have witnessed an increase in patient engagement, quality care, and cost-saving. 

For practices in the US where Medicare star ratings are a priority, maintaining a base of modern technology is proven to keep star ratings high, and determine focus areas for improvement. 

As the adoption of telemedicine is increasing, thus increases the innovations in service delivery. Medpath has incorporated these technologies to offer quality services to its customers.

Digital Twin

Trends in digital twin technology in the healthcare sector consists of a huge amount of personal health data which is gathered by wearables, and patients’ medical records.

Through the use of artificial intelligence, medical patient digital twinning creates an opportunity to improve medical diagnoses and treatments by use of real-time information to give quality care. The trend in digital twinning tends to represent the upcoming wave of efficiencies in the sector of healthcare, which will result in better outcomes and care.

Automation

Software bots offer an opportunity to complete tasks faster and are cost-effective compared to other system integration methods. For instance, robotic process automation (RPA) and intelligent automation can handle healthcare processes with near-flawless results. 

RPA is trending in the medical sector, and players like MedPath are enabling automation to offer high-quality care and patients experiences at a reasonable cost-saving.

Conclusion

Healthcare software technology trends will continue to evolve to meet the requirements of the health insurance companies, patients, consumers, healthcare providers, and the large eco-system, which tends to support one of the largest industries in today’s world. 

Due to the technology-driven economy, there are increased concerns about security and data privacy. Having a large amount of personally identifiable information (PII) in the healthcare sector, data security and data privacy are always at the forefront. While the sphere of healthcare services access grows, so be the concerns of where data will be stored and how to access it.
