Healthcare Technology: Improving the Patient’s Quality of Life
The far-reaching hands of digital health include areas such as wearable devices, mobile health, telemedicine and telehealth, health information technology, and personalized medicine.
Amid the challenges of the recent pandemic, healthcare organizations have realized the fact that digital transformation is key in order to survive during these testing times.
The pandemic has triggered immense disruption in the healthcare industry, leading the sector to invest and adopt more innovative technologies.
Digital healthcare trends, such as telemedicine virtual reality surgical training, and IoT devices, continue to attract massive investments that will shape the future of the healthcare industry for improved health equity worldwide.
Health equity is essentially the absence of unavoidable, unfair, or remedial differences in health among various population groups — socially, geographically, or economically. It makes healthcare more affordable and accessible for everyone. In fact, digital healthcare is the driving force behind this.
Benefits of Digital Healthcare Tech
The use of digital tools, including those beyond telemedicine, gives healthcare providers a more holistic view of patient health by providing them easy and ready access to data, and giving the patients more control over their data and overall health.
Digital health offers real opportunities to enhance the efficiency of healthcare routines and procedures and improve medical outcomes. They empower patients to make better decisions about their health, facilitate prevention through providing new options, get an early diagnosis of chronic illnesses, and manage critical conditions outside conventional health care settings.
Healthcare providers and other stakeholders are using digital health tools in order to:
- Provide access to medical records toImprove access to healthcare services and providers
- Reduce costs and make healthcare more affordable
- Reduce inefficiencies and prevent illnesses from an early stage
- Increase quality through regular checkups and digitally managed prescriptions
- Provide personalized medicine to patients that specifically cater to their medical needs
Healthcare consumers and patients, through digital health technologies, are able to better track and manage their wellness-related activities and overall health.
The use of technological means, such as smartphones and tablets, social media, internet applications, and other similar tools, are not only changing the way we communicate and operate in the world, but are also providing new and innovative ways to monitor our health and well-being and offer greater access to information.
One example of an innovative application of digital technology in healthcare would be Blocknubie, an AI and blockchain-powered platform that delivers cutting-edge decentralized and automated healthcare solutions to organizations seeking to fuel the ongoing technological revolution in the healthcare industry.
Blocknubie: Filling the missing pieces between patients and healthcare records
Blocknubie provides AI solutions to organizations giving them the ability to analyze and manage their data in order to make better decisions. With the help of machine learning and artificial intelligence, Blocknubie ensures a high level of autonomy to achieve organizational goals.
It accelerates the success of healthcare organizations by unlocking the hidden value of data and provides necessary infrastructure and technology to extract useful and actionable roadmaps from sophisticated datasets.
Blocknubie’s ecosystem reduces costs and increases performance, by providing powerful and scalable product solutions to meet the persisting challenges and demands. Therefore, it makes healthcare more affordable and efficient at the same time. It also provides two innovative applications to achieve these goals: the Vault and Health Application.
Blocknubie Health Application
The Blocknubie Healthcare Module is designed to be used by HEIs to issue patent medical records, where HEIs act as data issuers to patients (holders). The application acts as a medium for communication between the proprietary data standard used by independent institutions and the HL7 standard used by Blocknubie.
The module ensures that the institutions are allowed to issue data and consume it when patients come to their institution. It also allows for manual data entry for first-time issuance, or during transcription of legacy records to new digital electronic health records.
Most importantly, Blocknubie’s Healthcare Application guarantees industry-leading security and patient privacy, thanks to the adoption and implementation of blockchain tech to protect patient health information.
Patient Vault Application
Blocknubie Vault application speeds up the digital transformation of healthcare institutions by converting paper-based processes to online and readily accessible digital forms that can be executed at any time, anywhere in the world on any device.
By providing an easy-to-use and intuitive interface, Blocknubie Vault allows healthcare professionals to seamlessly build and host their own online patient forms that are readily accessible and manageable. The form offers the creation of questions with selectable types of answers, such as self-sovereign identity which belongs to the patient.
The form creators have the option to integrate optional and required fields and select the criteria of a valid answer. This quick and easy template form-building approach helps the transition of client organizations towards a more digital ecosystem that removes standard errors and environmentally unfriendly paper-based processes.
In a matter of minutes, Blocknubie Vault provides patients and healthcare providers with the ability to seamlessly verify and publish signatures in medical records, contracts, approvals, and agreements. Again, powered by the Blockchain Vault in healthcare.
