Technology is changing healthcare

Like many sectors, the pandemic has caused fast-paced changes within the healthcare industry.  Technology is making it possible for people to get care remotely and making it easier for healthcare workers to manage patient care. 

Effective online meeting software and the ability to store records electronically has made it possible for doctors to treat a lot of small ailments over the phone or in an online video chat meeting. Telehealth saves time and money and keeps sick people at home so that they will not bring their illnesses with them into public spaces at the doctor’s office. Patients can be seen efficiently, discharged quickly, and get their medications more rapidly compared to in-person visits.  

Electronically-stored health records (EHR) is not new technology, however it has been improving over the past 10 years. Doctors can easily access patient information and charting, report injuries and unusual occurrences and make important notes that need to be seen by other people within the healthcare system to provide the right care.  

Gone are the days of paper charts that get coffee spilled on them or that might be lost or damaged. EHR allow doctors to store images, comments, chart notes, and billing details in one location. This is one of the biggest and most beneficial developments of the current technology situation in the healthcare field. 

Remote monitoring such as tracking heart rates for those with heart conditions can make a big difference for people who need support at home. It can also be used in pacemakers and monitor blood pressure and other vital health information. This not only eliminates unnecessary hospital appointments but allows healthcare professionals to track trends in a patient’s daily life.
