Fitness bands: Connected devices help physicians monitor blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels and more without requiring an in-person visit.
The results: Reduced costs associated with unnecessary doctor visits, enhanced communication between both provider and patient, and faster diagnosis
Smart alerts: When doctors are able to track a patient’s adherence to treatment plans, they can monitor whether or not to keep the medication ongoing, or make a change.
The results: Proactive treatment, improved quality of care and error reduction
Tracking & storage: Keep track of equipment, such as wheelchairs, defibrillators, oxygen pumps and more, as well as medication. Or put sensors in storage rooms or refrigerators to ensure an acceptable environment.
The results: Better drug and equipment management, higher patient satisfaction due to always-available supply and greater visibility
Explore some of the ways organizations can leverage Artificial Intelligence (AI):
AI has the potential to do 40% of the tasks done by nonclinical staff and 33% of the tasks done by clinical staff. It can also automate financial services for billing and collections, claims management and insurance verification.
81% of patients would schedule their own appointment via a secure web service and 57% expect doctors to send automated texts, voice or email reminders urging them to schedule appointments or take medications.
A study by Harvard Business Review analyzed 379 orthopedic patients and found that AI-assisted robotic procedures resulted in five times fewer complications compared to surgeons operating alone.
Faster response time
A Danish AI software with deep-learning capabilities was put to the test listening in on emergency calls and was able to detect cardiac arrests based on the tone of the voice at a 93% success rate compared to 73% for humans.
While the ability to collect data is useful, it can be a challenging process. Obstacles to monetizing data include:
For patients, security and confidentiality is a key concern.
62% of patients would rather have their data protected even if it means foregoing easier access.
But you can have the best of both worlds by ensuring HIPAA compliance and PHI security:
45% of industry leaders say their workforce’s capabilities are a significant barrier to organizational change.
Don’t let skill gaps prevent your organization from embracing the latest tech for healthcare.
Steps to integrate innovations into the workforce include:
