How is digitalization bringing a change in the healthcare ecosystem ?
Digitisation and penetration of mobile internet are going to be game changers for the Indian healthcare industry. Digital health solutions will help enhance access to healthcare services for patients. The significant benefit is the opportunity of healthcare ecosystems to serve all health needs for a customer, be it consult, pharmacy delivery, diagnostics at home, home healthcare and remote patient monitoring.
Start-ups are the drivers in the digital healthcare evolution, in recent years tech giants such as Google, Apple, Samsung and others are pushing a whole new gamut of digital health applications for monitoring heart rates, ECG, blood oxygenation, blood pressure, pulse rate and blood sugar levels.
The digitisation of health records will help immensely in the accuracy of diagnosis, building patient longitudinal history, reduce medical administration errors and offer timely warnings, alerts to prevent severe medical crises.
How important is the role of technology in driving digital healthcare?
Unfortunately, the healthcare sector in India has been one of the slowest adopters of digital technology and digital innovation in delivery of care. Legacy operating issues, infrastructure hurdles and the significant challenge of change management have been the key constraints. The Covid 19 pandemic has been a catalyst to push through the much needed behavioural change by both patients and doctors – it has been a catalyst in pushing adoption of telemedicine, digital EMR platforms. The adoption of new-age technology in digital innovations has further strengthened the healthcare delivery channels. Several healthcare organisations and doctors are embracing the use of AI (Artificial Intelligence) in adding value to the quality of care delivered to their patients. The tools integrated with AI help transform the healthcare delivery model by automating the everyday processes in the sector and providing improved patient outcomes.
