In the healthcare field, digital technology has increased operational efficiency and elevated the standards of patient experience as well as amplifying the value of care. This ongoing digital transformation has significantly raised the overall experience for both patients and professionals. In particular, medical experts see that technologies such as big data artificial intelligence and robotic process automation have great potential in the healthcare industry whilst amplifying patient experience.
Let's read to find out more.
1. Big Data
One of the greatest benefits of using technology is that it allows us to capture and store data. Conducting epidemiological studies, research and clinical trials through the use of technology helps collect data almost instantly from a larger and more diverse population. Such a thorough collection of data allows for meta-analysis and permits healthcare professionals to stay ahead of cutting-edge techniques and trends.
Also, access and analysis to large amounts of data can help clinicians and physicians identity risk factors and recommend appropriate preventive measures.
2. Artificial Intelligence (AI)
AI has helped doctors reduce the occurrence of misdiagnosis and errors by 15%. Doctors, pathologists, and radiologists are using AI for screening, cut down on medical negligence, and also help detect cancer in a few cases. Apart from this, pharmaceutical companies can find better trial candidates for drugs that are currently in the research and development phase.
AI's inroads in medicine are revolutionary and will transform the healthcare industry.
3. Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
In the healthcare industry, the margin for error is zero. RPA's entry into the healthcare industry has been a blessing. Robotic-assisted surgery comes with greater control, extreme precision, and zero margin for error.
Robotic nurses can help in the drawing of blood and have shown better results when it comes to finding the vein, thereby enhancing the patient experience.
