HealthTech: Combining Human and Digital Experience

Virtual healthcare will combine human and digital experience by converting as much of the in-person visit into a remote/virtual one. Future systems will solve the need for providing clinical data.

Profound change will come from Wearables where high-end tech becomes inexpensive and on the consumer market (eg., EEG brainwave sensors).

Digital advances are continually making it more possible for the individual to have power when it comes to their health and prevention of disease.

Doctors and nurses are in the human-to-human business. They will need to look patients in the eye and hear their stories. We must leverage technology that gives patients a VOICE.

Imagine a personal medical assistant in the cloud scheduling online meetings with your doctor, diagnosing symptoms early on, and reminding you of prescriptions or recommending an in-person medical specialist visit.

Advances in assisted living and medical technologies are rapidly expanding – Sensors that monitor stoves, smart locks, video conferencing systems, even beds that can monitor when a patient falls.

  1. There can never be a fully fledged Virtual HealthCare System as there are many things a doctor can identify wrong in a human body just by looking at him, the details of which cannot be provided over a video or even a Holographic imagery.
    There are several minute variations in the sound produced by the inhaling and exhaling process which are recognized by the doctors in person only. transferring such detailed sound over Internet can contain various elements of noise which cannot be truncated. mistaking the difference between “pneumonia” and a harsh cold can result in negative consequences for the patient.

    For increasing the accuracy State of the art equipments will be required services of which might be a more costly affair than personally visiting the doctor.
    The only place this kind of a system can and should be used is during an emergency when a suggestion of a surgeon is required not the final word.

  2. Virtual healthcare can’t treat a broken arm or emergencies, but at least they can give cure or solutions to minor injuries, infections, etc., and don’t need appointments or wait in queues for the doctor’s consultation. So, people needn’t worry about appointments or prescriptions which is just a click away instead of visiting the doctor.
