Today's medical world is changing to integrate expanding digital networks, specialized computer software, and other technologies. Healthcare must strive to keep up with aging populations and ever-changing government and insurance guidelines. Here are several ways that current technology is changing healthcare.

Diagnostics

Trying to keep healthcare affordable and accessible means proving computerized diagnostics, particularly for patients who have trouble even getting to a hospital. Remote imaging and video conferencing allows patients equipped with the devices to be examined by a doctor who's still miles away at his office, while any images taken can be instantly transmitted and stored in a digital format for later and evaluation, and even easily shared with other health professionals for consultation.

Monitoring

Wearable health monitoring devices are going to play a big role. Such technology can monitor a person's pulse, heartbeat, and other vitals 24/7, and the data uploaded to computer. Doctors and hospitals can receive alerts and run reports for tracking and analysis of patients with cardiovascular issues to determine the effectiveness of treatments. As more sophisticated devices and software are developed, these same devices will be provide information helping to detect the early stages of such diseases as Parkinson's, diabetes, or multiple sclerosis, to name a few.

Credentialing

Digital networks and Internet technology also make it possible to do something that was a laborious process previously, and that's the credentialing of healthcare practitioners. License verification, like WebID organization license validation, can be used for real-time validation of individuals or small groups of records. It can also provide confidence to a variety of persons, such as new or prospective patients, journalists, insurance providers, and other approved users who need reassurances regarding the licensure of the healthcare organization itself. Software and networking make this possible with just a simple search.

Informatics

Most US hospitals today use some form of electronic record keeping and management, for patient medical files, patient scheduling, billing, and more. But many of those systems are still relying on outdated desktop applications, or are not integrated, so there's no way that billing would be automatically informed if an insurance provider changes. Modern computer solutions, such as cloud services, can integrate all these operations into a secure storage and network infrastructure that serves as a means for quickly returning patient information in a variety of required formats, or detailed reports on specific areas of patient care. The government is mandating that all healthcare facilities have such systems in the near future.
