In the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, nations across the world and global bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) are increasingly looking at the potential of digital technologies in aiding public health. From immediate outbreak response to impact mitigation, digital technologies and tools are being deployed at the frontline of the COVID-19 battle worldwide to address the most urgent public health needs during the pandemic. According to WHO, digital technologies are set to play a powerful role in improving the health of people worldwide. And what we call ‘digital health’ today will be, in future, the way we deliver health services in the digital age.
Notably, aging populations, increasing patient demands, and the rise of lifestyle diseases have already been forcing healthcare providers to innovate on the healthcare services. And with the disruption of healthcare by the pandemic, it has become essential than ever for providers to strategically prepare for the uncertainties and make the most out of the rapidly-changing environment by leveraging cutting-edge technologies.
Digital technologies have already opened up a wealth of possibilities in the healthcare sector. For instance, big data analytics is aiding healthcare providers to improve their services while containing costs. Its ability to detect patterns and to turn high volumes of data into actionable knowledge is helping health care providers in offering solutions for the improvement of patient care and the generation of value in the organizations. Similarly, artificial intelligence (AI)-powered tools are helping health caregivers to study patterns in patients and provide accurate diagnostics faster. AI-powered screening tests are helping caregivers offer quick diagnosis, and also helping the patients to access treatment more rapidly. Likewise, other cutting-edge technologies such as blockchain and the internet of things (IoT) are all being leveraged today to create healthcare products and services that benefit patients and providers alike.
