Digital transformation is driving the change in healthcare
The digital health market is expected to reach $206 billion by 2020. Many companies are already redefining themselves with digital transformation, changing the dynamics across the market and promising to soar higher in just the next few years.
However, keeping up with digital transformation in a traditional industry like healthcare can feel very overwhelming. Adapting to the digital era requires a shift towards a flexible and risk-taking mindset. It means letting go of outdated processes and trusting that disruption will yield big results.
With the main goal of streamlining physicians’ work, optimizing systems, improving patient outcomes, reducing human error, and lowering costs through amazing web and mobile experiences, innovation is the only answer. These goals cover every aspect, every sector of healthcare, varying from equipment manufacturing, insurance, hospital and medical services to pharmaceutical. The vast coverage of it poses a challenge as to understand the core problem and accordingly decide which emerging technologies are worth investing in.
The digital transformation in healthcare is mainly driven by the need 2 key stakeholders - also the 2 parties that are in need of digital transformation the most:
Healthcare providers (hospitals, clinics, pharma): Healthcare providers have always been in the centre of overload, as they need not only their own problems solved (data storage, data transfer, bed management, diagnosis accuracy, real-time analytics on the results of medication testing...) but also the problems of patients (wait time, consultation reception,...). If digital transformation is leveraged, healthcare providers can multi-solving numerous problems at once and reduce the amount of pressure on their protocols, processes and personnel.
Patients/health-conscious people: The patients are the ones who receive the most if healthcare is transformed digitally, whether it is scheduling a quick appointment with the doctor, finding an appropriate specialist with hands on experience, viewing the medical test reports from labs online, purchasing medicines and other products at affordable prices or so on. With healthcare transformation, people can “plan” their health in a more efficient sense, geographically and financially.
Mobile healthcare apps are in the midst of the surging digital transformationIn correspondence to each stakeholder is a digital transformation trend that will likely to take off in the next 3 years:
AR/VR/MR: The global virtual and augmented reality in healthcare market is expected to reach $5.1 billion by 2025. They are considered the pièce de résistance of digital transformation in healthcare. Its myriad of applications are profoundly changing the way patients are being treated. By rendering 3D information on real-world scenes, these technologies permit surgeons and doctors to stay grounded in actual procedures while having ready access to all the data available through other emerging technologies. Doctors can compare data to what they’re seeing in the real world in order to make more accurate diagnoses and plan for procedures; and patients can receive better healthcare services.
Mobile on-demand healthcare services: Mobility is the name of the game here, as more than 50% of all web browsing in the world occurs on mobile devices as of 2019, over four billion people globally are on the Internet, and 45% of the world's population owns a smartphone. Integrating healthcare services into a pocketable device like a smartphone helps people to capsule their time spent on healthcare, put in the context of this increasingly bustling world. Doctors themselves become on-demand healthcare providers to better meet the changing needs of their patients. Likewise, patients can keep track of their health in real-time and get access to doctors without long commuting and waiting in queues.
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT): Various devices and mobile apps have come to play a critical role in tracking and preventing chronic illnesses for many patients and their doctors. By combining IoT development with telemedicine and telehealth technologies, IoMT has emerged and will grow even bigger in the future: between 20 and 30 billion IoMT devices are expected to be deployed by the end of 2020; the global IoT healthcare market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 29.9% to reach $322.2 billion by 2025. Using IoT with wearables connected, doctors can now keep track of patients’ health indicators such as skin temperature, glucose level, blood pressure,..and suggest appropriate medication and treatment in a timely manner. It’s a win for both sides.
