How to Bring a Change in Healthcare with Technology?

A lot has been said and written about technology. How it has been a boon to our kind and how it has revolutionized industries, education, and several other sectors. I mean the list is seemingly never ending and it would take someone years to detail every nitty gritty stuff related to technology and its impact as well as side effects on us. Even you are able to read this because of the technology I’m using to write on and share as well. And if I’m not wrong by now you must be wondering why I’m telling the obvious. I mean you all are aware of it already. We are aware of it already. So, why? Well, it is because what you are going to read next is going to have a lot related to technology.

 

Health Care System

 

Medical Bills and Health Insurance Cost

So, let’s begin. We as a human are naturally much depended on the health care and other medical facilities that are available. And while the lack of availability of certain essential features in our health care department could be questionable, there is no doubt the adverse effect medical bills can have on us. This is more relatable if someone is from the middle class wage-earning group or has had to see your closed one through an intensive treatment. The medical bills can create an enormous hole in one’s financial security and at times can prevent a patient from getting themselves the best available treatment.

We often read about how a family lost their loved ones because they couldn’t afford the treatment. And with how most of the effective health insurance policies cost so much, we often see people debating about how our government should come up with better healthcare plans so that it is feasible with a lot of the people irrespective of their income group. And while the government can certainly do a lot more, realistically, the problem will still be far from tackled. And this has a lot to do with the role of technology in health care industries. And my next point is exactly about covering that.

Role of Technology

Technology in the medical industry has sure eased a lot of things in dealing with the patients and their illness. It helps better in both procuring and maintaining the patients' details and in some cases can be a life savior too. However, these life saving procedures usually cost a fortune that only the rich can afford. And this has been the major drawback of technology in the healthcare sector.

Researchers and scientists both believe that medicine is one field where technology has performed nowhere near to its potential. Many of them believe that there is enough room for technology to grow in this field and a lot is dependent on the innovation of it such as the applications of nanotechnology. With the improved role of the technology, we can see that the cost of health care could be decreased and controlled significantly. Thus, ensuring many can afford proper healthcare insurance.

Innovation in Technology

Innovation in technology is going to be crucial in healthcare as it can potentially tie the health care unit to self care practices. Not only can it facilitate the role of home health care in the overall health care system but it can even be a force towards building community based independence for individuals. Some of the innovation that can ushers a change in the way the health care system has been working so far and helping with the cost of it is the following innovation:

Safety

A passive alarm system can work in the same vein as that of the alarm system that can detect fire or flood. This alarm system can be used to distinguish the heat generated by the meal preparation and the heat generated by a stove that is left turned on.

Monitoring of Patients and Detection of Emergencies

Technology such as these can now be found in smartwatches that can detect falls. There can be more devices that can allow calling for a medical simply by pressing a button on your device.

Cognitive and Sensory Activity

Such technologies can help with generating alerts and reminders to alerts during any trigger warnings or reminders to turn on lights.

I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week. Here is his WhatsApp no: +44 7520 636249 or his email address: pm7234029@gmail.com Https://www.facebook.com/PM-Fast-Trade-104912912155335/
