The healthcare industry is becoming increasingly complex, and some of the largest IT service providers and product development firms are constantly in pursuit of value-added solutions such as data analytics for healthcare to fully address the issue. Although some new technologies are already having a positive effect in the future, we have highlighted some of the major trends that will dominate by 2021.
Data Stories & Visualization
Healthcare organizations generate more data than any other domain. Making sense of the available data to extract useful insights is one of the reasons hospitals make heavy investments in a Data Analytics & Visualization Platform that enables stakeholders to know hidden trends and patterns. Today, data is presented in the form of stories rather than numbers and graphs; this allows users to leverage the data in ways that empower stakeholders to make informed decisions. A number of data visualization platforms such as Tableau and ITLytics are widely used in Healthcare organizations for their visual storytelling capabilities that encourage data-driven decision-making.
3D printing is a boom in the global market and the possibilities of using this technology to elevate Healthcare & Medical sciences are endless! 3D technology continues to be crucial in medical science. Many years ago, students, doctors, and researchers have used the technology to visualize anatomy and to better understand the complexities of different organs. According to experts, 3D printing in the upcoming decade will see significant growth, especially with the advancement of 3D printed prosthetics that provide each individual with a more accurate and customized version. Investing in high-quality personalized surgical equipment that allows surgeons to manage difficult surgeries and incisions also represents a potential business growth opportunity for medical equipment manufacturers.
Internet of Things (IoT)
The healthcare sector too provides many advantages of the data collected from connected devices. Early adopters of IoT technology are already reaping enormous benefits. Tracking medical equipment has made it easier for hospitals and diagnostic centers to ensure that everything is where it needs to be. The employees can stay focused on tasks that need priority attention when they know how many wheelchairs, defibrillators, scales, etc are available and being used. Similarly, doctors are also leveraging IoT to analyze data collected from wearable(s) to easily monitor the patient’s health in real-time and address concerns as soon as there are any abnormal anomalies.
