In the 2020s, innovation in medicine and healthcare will be defined by diversity, consumerization and even more intelligent artificial intelligence, all of which will help create solutions to the industry’s biggest challenges.
The health care will go the digital transformation in the 2020s.In 2019, health care information technology (HIT) in the US will continue to be transformed by external forces from all around the world. Globally, the push to move to electronic medical records (EMR) and electronic health records (EHR) is helping to rise in digitized health care.
The new digital platform and highly secure infrastructure will help healthcare professionals to store health-related patient data in the form of a statutory electronic patient record (EPR).
The use of artificial intelligence(AI) in medicine is generating hope for treatment advances.
AI generally refers to computers’ ability to learn human intelligence and to develop algorithms that will help them make decisions about the treatments. The impact of AI on health care is truly life-changing. As it has various applications in health care from hospital care to clinical research, drug development, and insurance. These AI applications are revolutionizing the health sector and work to reduce spending and improve patient outcomes.
Robotics will provide new ways of medical surgeries
A robot-assisted, surgeon-controlled surgical system uses minimally-invasive surgical instruments and 3D high-definition visuals to enhance accuracy and control.
Wearable robots such as robot prostheses are used to replace missing limbs and organs. Also, robots exoskeletons to aid paralyzed people are used to rehabilitate or enhance a patient’s physical capabilities.
Robotics also help in an autonomous collection of data, which can provide accurate and continuous data for health informatics pros across numerous health care areas, like surgery, drug delivery, and cognitive rehabilitation in patient management.
Nanomedicine will be the future of medicine
The application of nanotechnology to medicine, is currently at an early stage but it is expected to have a revolutionary impact on health care, nanomedicine will develop precise devices to advance biomedical research and clinical practice.
Nanorobots can be used for drug delivery and disease monitoring by injecting into a patient’s bloodstream. Therapeutic nanoparticles also have multiple applications in cancer patients, like improving circulation and delivering a more sensitive diagnosis and imaging.
Apart from this emerging technology like stem cell , 3D bioprinting will also have tremendous power to transform health care across the globe.
