How is industry 4.0 impacting the healthcare industry?
Healthcare has been undergoing a lot of changes in the past few decades. As technology advances, it's important for medical professionals to stay up-to-date on the latest innovations and how they can use them to provide better care for their patients.
This blog post will discuss 3 ways that industry 4.0 and the Internet-of-Things (IoT) are impacting healthcare and how you can be prepared!
1. Healthcare in your hands
With Industry 4.0, the way that patients can now access healthcare and how doctors manage care have been transformed. We live in a world where anyone can access data and healthcare in an instant!
Data is everything. The right data can help companies unlock new opportunities and understand their customers in ways they never thought possible.
Healthcare providers are no different. They rely on data to improve patient outcomes, make better business decisions, and discover new treatments and medication options for chronic disorders such as psoriasis. For example, Senderra Specialty Pharmacy performs patient management services for pharmaceutical manufacturers. This allows pharma manufacturers to have real-time, predictive information that has been collected, to use for their benefit.
Industry 4.0 has paved the way for companies like Senderra and Neuromend the ability to provide specialized treatments for people with severe, sometimes chronic conditions (crohn's disease, anxiety, depression and more). Making healthcare more accessible for people and their healthcare providers, means enhanced patient care.
2. Workforce Automation
In the healthcare industry, automation and artificial intelligence are changing the way that we perform tasks - and it’s about time! Machines can complete tedious and repetitive work much more quickly than people, changing the way that doctors and medical staff are able to deliver care for their patients.
With artificial intelligence and automation, machines learn from enormous amounts of data, unlocking endless opportunities, thus telehealth is born. These machines have given us the ability to quickly analyze findings, spot causes, effects, and symptoms that humans could easily miss.
For instance, Blue Margin's Healthcare HQ mobilizes data to give healthcare companies the insight they need to optimize operations and drive financial performance.
3. Wearable Sensors
There’s more to smartwatches and other wearable devices than helping people track their fitness. Apple released a Movement Disorder API that allowed doctors to gather more information on Parkinson’s disease by tracking smartwatch wearers. The rise of wearable sensors has ushered a new era of telehealth, where we're able to gather data and autonomously exchange information through a connected ecosystem (like Incetrik's SmartHub).
For example, doctors can use sensors in hospital beds vital signs and heart rate without constantly checking in on each person. With the right wearable devices, a patient may not need to come into the hospital for a check-up after surgery.
