Any era is remembered for the greatest achievements that occurred in that time. If 21st century is to be remembered for something, it is definitely the evolution of amazing technologies like robotics, AI, IoT, computer vision and much more. While the impact of these technologies has been felt across all industries, they have made quite a mark in healthcare.
Take robotics for instance. Where once there was wariness surrounding the technology, the people have come to trust robots with their life. Today, collaborative robots (cobots) are being extensively leveraged in the operating room. But their applications go beyond assisting surgeons. From facilitating the treatment of patients via ‘telepresence’ in rural areas and helping disabled patients rehabilitate to enabling the automation of labs and pharma manufacturing centers, robotic technology is establishing its footprint throughout healthcare.
The healthcare sector is also witnessing a revolution in imaging technology with the emergence of computer and machine vision. By training computers to assess visual input and deliver accurate reports, healthcare organizations are redefining medical imaging. Whether it is conducting diagnostics, viewing scans, or analyzing medical images, machine vision technology is helping care providers to deliver better results to their patients. Most importantly, computer vision is taking diagnostics beyond guesswork to more accurate intel based on troves of historical data.
No less impressive is the wearable technology of today, which is showing great potential in helping healthcare providers deliver care remotely. An increasing number of healthcare organizations are leveraging wearable technology to track patient progress, whether using them as ECG monitors to trace heart rhythms or as blood pressure monitors. Undoubtedly, wearable technology is helping patients to be more proactive in their own healthcare.
