Empowering patients with telehealth: A comprehensive guide

In an era where technology permeates every aspect of modern society, its integration into healthcare has been nothing short of transformative. Technology heavily affects every aspect of our being today. From e-commerce to online education, technology stands at the forefront of revamping convenience by bridging the gap between consumers and providers. Much like how e-commerce and online education platforms revolutionized the delivery of products and services directly to consumers’ homes, telehealth empowers healthcare providers to reach patients wherever they may be, breaking down geographical barriers and overcoming traditional limitations of in-person visits. With the advent of telehealth, the intersection of technology and healthcare has reached unprecedented accessibility and convenience. But what exactly is telehealth, and why has it become an indispensable tool in patient care?

The role of blockchain in securing healthcare data

Technology is a boon and a bane. It is a boon because it aids administrative processes and streamlines healthcare operations, letting workers focus on more critical tasks. However, technology is a bane because hackers are always on their toes, trying to penetrate the most precious thing healthcare organizations hold – patient health data. We have witnessed a staggering rise in healthcare data breaches in the past decade. In fact, healthcare is one of the industries most highly affected by data breaches. Due to the sensitive nature of data in healthcare, it is one of the hottest targets for cyber attackers looking for important information.

Digital innovation in healthcare: Exploring emerging trends

We live in the era of evidence-based medicine, where patient expectations and customized healthcare reign supreme. Hence, it becomes imperative for healthcare providers to grasp the latest digital transformations progressing within the healthcare industry. Healthcare systems are increasingly adopting digital technologies like telemedicine, wearables, mHealth apps, AI, etc., to implement practical solutions that drive better medical outcomes. Furthermore, adopting changes spurred by digital innovations ensues improvements in medical problems.
Digital innovation is spreading rapidly in the healthcare sector. Consolidating healthcare data into electronic health records (EHRs) enhances interoperability and facilitates the seamless exchange of information among healthcare providers 75% of hospitals in the US use EHR systems. Additionally, integrating telehealth services within EHR systems has become increasingly prevalent, allowing for streamlined virtual consultations and remote patient monitoring. Moreover, the adoption of mobile health apps has surged in recent years, with patients leveraging these tools to schedule appointments, access medical records, and even receive personalized health recommendations on the go. As patient engagement continues to evolve, healthcare organizations invest in patient portals and secure messaging platforms integrated with EHRs to empower individuals to manage their health proactively.

How is virtual reality revolutionizing surgical training of doctors?

It is amazing how technology, specifically virtual reality (VR) is stepping into unimaginable territories such as critical healthcare, playing a pivotal role in training healthcare professionals, enhancing patient care, and improving medical procedures. There was a time when surgeons were evaluated on specialized knowledge alone, while the number of operations they conducted, the success rate, the time taken for a procedure, and their demeanor in the operation room (OR) were all factors that, over time built their repute in professional circles.
The rise in the number of aged and sick patients, along with the improvement in critical care services has led to a situation where experienced surgeons are over-burdened with work, prone to committing errors, and unable to devote time to train apprentice doctors.
The long waiting list for elective surgeries, demand for operation rooms, restricted time slots, and demand for quality care have deprived student surgeons of their rightful hours of experiential learning.

Leveraging space context to develop better performing bioproducts for healthcare

Once the preserve of national agencies, space has gradually opened up to the private sector for various commercial activities. Ever since NASA permitted visits to the International Space Station (ISS) in low Earth orbit, it has turned into a laboratory for experiments.
Healthcare product innovation and pharmaceutical research have taken wings, capitalizing on the unique characteristics of space to gather fresh insights. First, microgravity –allows the deep study of altered growth and function of cells and tissues, essential for regenerative medicine; secondly, radiation–exposure can induce chemical reactions and lead to discoveries of new drug candidates; thirdly, the near-vacuum of outer space – means reduced contamination, which helps to maintain the purity and integrity of biological material in medical research on healing, bone health and muscle atrophy.

Can EEG biomarkers help determine the precise anesthetic dose?

Precision medicine is coming in on the back of electroencephalogram (EEG) datasets and the biomarkers they throw up. As R&D units in healthcare and  pharmaceutical companies launch EEG dataset projects, private equity funds are backing digital biomarker startups that are foraying into digital healthcare product development.
