Wearable devices might sound, at first, like something out of a sci-fi movie. In fact, wearable devices are something that many people use regularly, including activity trackers like FitBits or smartwatches. The medical community stands to benefit from taking advantage of this technology to track and utilize health data with a patient’s consent and knowledge.
Now more than ever, people want access to health care with less wait time, lower costs, and better quality of care. The solution to this lies in telemedicine (which you may hear described as virtual health or telehealth too). Developing telemedicine apps takes convenience and quality of care further, maximizing efficiency and access for patients and providers alike.
Advancements in technology have the power to improve every industry, healthcare included. Digital transformation in healthcare means decision makers have to determine what technology is worth investment. As the last year has shown us, telehealth is a key trend everyone should be watching.
