What are the top healthcare trends?
With the growth in technology and increased patient data, health informatics has become a vast field of study. As health informatics has progressed, researchers have identified core areas that will improve and have an impact on the current state of healthcare delivery. A few of these core areas are listed below:
Natural Language Processing
Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology is designed to derive meaningful and actionable data from freely written text. NLP technology continues to be refined, providing countless benefits. Through effective NLP, health care professionals are doing more than saving time. They are communicating more effectively, identifying crucial data, and pushing the boundaries of health care forward.
The healthcare IT field, and world in general, is full of hot trends and buzzwords. One important and popular trend that is continuously gaining more traction is the practice of “precision medicine.” Advances in health care research and the industry have led to more providers and hospitals utilizing precision medicine treatments.
In 2016, the smart watch market grew rapidly, giving consumers more options. Most first generation designs have been replaced by second and third generation versions with many improvements. As the market for wearable devices grows, we will more than likely find more wearable smart devices clinging to our bodies.
Virtual reality and augmented reality, VR and AR respectively, have been areas of intrigue for some time now. Initially little more than a novelty, the technology is improving by leaps and bounds. So are the practical applications from improved physician training to pain management.
Remote Monitoring and Digital Health:
The growing technology awareness among the population is increasing the use of real time self-monitoring sensors and medical devices. In coming years, this will encourage many health care IT developers to roll out technologies for larger access.
Personalized Health Care:
As the years pass by, health care is going to become more and more patient centric. All developments and technologies in health care will focus on improve patient involvement in the care process. Healthcare technologists have started to use tools like the personal health records (PHRs) to enable patients to be more connected with their health data. Health informaticists are always working on valuable data that can help researchers and clinicians find ways to provide better health care.
Health Care Security:
A rapid increase in computerization of health care organizations (HCOs) around the world has raised their profile as lucrative targets for cyber-criminals.
As this technology is further refined and more widely adopted, there is massive potential for truly revolutionized care.
Apart from these areas, research work is being carried out in health mobile applications, artificial intelligence, health care big data analytics and EHR technologies.
