Other developments likely to benefit the healthcare industry are augmented reality and virtual reality (e.g. surgeons being able to practice a surgery in a VR environment, using it as a training tool), artificial intelligence (e.g. diagnosis tools designed both for patients and doctors) and personalised medicines (e.g. where drugs can be tailored to an individual’s genetic code).
From storing medical records online to the rise of surgical robotics and video diagnostics, digital transformation is both revolutionising patient care and enabling health organisations to reduce the amount of time staff spend on documentation and data entry.
