Health Care and AI ML

    Is healthcare progressing with technology?

    It should come as no surprise that healthcare is in need of some improvements. From the handling of patient care to innovations in the field, often the medical world falls behind when it comes to advancements. When it comes to incorporating new methodologies and treatment plans, many times the healthcare system as a whole shrug and looks the other way. So why is there a hesitation when it comes to updating our healthcare system? Moreover, why is it so crucial that we improve it now before it is too late?

    There has been a massive drive in more recent years to create new treatment options, many times these techniques focus too heavily on a blanket goal. Not only is our innovation primarily aimed at medical procedures and drugs tailored to caring for symptoms rather than preventing problems, but most local medical practices are far from high tech. Without the use of medical technology geared towards predicting possible illnesses before they occur, misdiagnosis is common, leading to almost 500 preventable medical deaths per day in the United States alone. Without the help of the latest in medical diagnosis programs, as well as a shift in the way we think about healthcare innovation, our medical programs are going nowhere fast. This is why we need to push for Medical Innovation that extends beyond drug development and large-scale treatment.

    Technology advancement in healthcare

    When it comes to looking at the technological progress of healthcare, many argue that the internet of things (IoT) is the fate of patient treatment. However, what is IoT, and what are the different issues and problems facing its integration into our healthcare system?

    The IoT would permit healthcare providers to have more of a window into the lives of their patients and would put most medical services a button away. Instead of relying on once a year visits from their patients to figure out their lifestyle preferences, doctors would be able to monitor any changes in vital signs or activity remotely, as well as to notice any potentially dangerous symptoms the minute they happened. For patients who want more intensive monitoring, the IoT could give them the safety of medical observation without being restrained to a hospital or their home. When it comes to implementing the IoT into our current healthcare fabrication, privacy concerns remain at the forefront of its integration. However, with the proper attention to security, IoT could improve the lives of millions of patients around the world.
