Healthcare Technology Challenges

Technology has a significant role to play in the future of digital health. Advancements in the healthcare industry have allowed physicians to diagnose and treat their patients better, adding convenience at the patient’s end and making the provider’s life easier.

Healthcare facilities are now moving in a direction where they can provide sustainable healthcare to their citizens. Technological trends are not only making the lives of patients easier but also solving some massive problems at the providers’ end.

Let’s have a look at the top problems the healthcare industry is facing and how technology can be the answer.

Remote Access to Telemedicine

No matter how promising telemedicine and mobile app healthcare sounds, it does present us with some challenges. Timely access to professionals remotely, device reliability, etc. are some primary issues that hinder the effectiveness of telemedicine.

  • The Technological Solution

The performance abilities of these technologies are continuously expanding, creating a more reliable experience for medical professionals who can now provide patient care virtually. The telemedicine limitations are sure to fade in the past as long as the emphasis is given on real-time communications and improved streaming functionality.

Managing the huge Patient Data

The existing big pool of patient data is becoming even bigger with every passing day. Not only the storage but also retrieval of patient data is becoming a challenge for medical professionals. As a result, it often leads to situations like lapsed appointments, wrong diagnoses, improper treatment, and compromise in data security, etc.

  • The Technological Solution

Rapidly evolving healthcare technology could help medical personnel gather massive amounts of data. Mobile portals and cloud-based data systems can help healthcare professionals get real-time access to patient-related data like appointments, medical history, diagnoses, treatments and more.

Inefficiencies and Errors in Data Sharing

Medical science has made tremendous advancements, yet errors and inefficiencies persist. The exchange of patient data in case of transfer from one hospital to another can be a specific area of concern. Traditionally, patient record sharing was not only inefficient and time-consuming but also exposed the data to the risk of breach.

  • The Technological Solution

Everyone associated with the healthcare industry should be able to exchange medical data securely among themselves in order to deliver a holistic healthcare experience. Cloud-based data management systems like a blockchain-based databases can store and share patient records solving the inefficiencies caused by the traditional pen-and-paper approach.

Medicare and Medicaid Reimbursement

A few changes can be witnessed in the procedures for filing and receiving Medicare and Medicaid. If the treatment is availed under Medicare, the doctors need to store patient records and fill out the prescribed electronic forms for the services rendered in a particular format.

  • The Technological Solution

The healthcare industry is widely embracing the Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems to simplify Medicare and Medicaid filing along with health record-keeping. These systems also help improve the exchange of medical data to disburse claims, speed up the process of patients’ data submission, and faster payments for the services rendered.
