Unlocking the potential of Digitized Healthcare

Dec 2022

Healthcare is a human-centric industry that leverages patient satisfaction to drive value, growth, and prosperity.

The times have changed, with industries shifting to a new normal by implementing digital tools and technology in their business processes.

Gone are the days when manual business processes used to dominate in the healthcare sector too, but as the pandemic resulted in digitized business processes, the healthcare sector, too, have started leveraging the benefits of e-healthcare, which has not only surpassed the organizations' know-how but also shifted the entire healthcare businesses to an all-new digital infrastructure.

The potential of healthcare is enormous when it comes to digital business practices.

The emerging technologies mentioned below tell a lot about the E-Healthcare that will dominate the healthcare market in the upcoming days.

1. AI in Healthcare

Ai is one of the emerging technologies benefiting the healthcare sector more than any other sector.

Research also suggests that out of the highest investments made in AI, 20% accounts for the Healthcare sector, resulting in E-Healthcare practices, leveraging the benefits of AI technologies in healthcare.

For instance, a US-based AI organization helps healthcare teams react faster with AI-powered healthcare solutions with its products detecting issues and notifying care teams quickly, enabling healthcare providers to discuss options, provide faster treatment decisions, and thus save lives.

2. IoT in Healthcare

Like other emerging technologies, IoT has enormous applications in healthcare as well.
IoT-enabled devices have resulted in remote monitoring in the healthcare sector, unleashing the potential to keep patients safe and healthy and empowering physicians to deliver excellent care.

It has also increased patient engagement and satisfaction in interactions by making the doctors' interaction more accessible and more efficient.
Furthermore, remote monitoring of patients' health has helped reduce the length of hospital stays.
It prevents re-admissions by significantly reducing expenses and improving treatment outcomes.

3. Machine Learning in Healthcare

The healthcare sector has benefitted from Machine Learning, and it holds enormous potential in the days to come.

One of the most crucial ML applications in healthcare is the identification and diagnosis of diseases and ailments which are otherwise considered hard to diagnose from machines and medical devices.

For instance, to identify the tough cancers to catch during the initial stages of other genetic diseases, IBM Watson Genomics integrates cognitive computing with genome-based tumor sequencing, enabling quicker diagnosis and treatment.

Another instance of ML in Healthcare includes P1vital's PReDicT (Predicting Response to Depression Treatment), which aims to develop a commercially feasible way to diagnose and provide treatment in routine clinical conditions.


The Healthcare industry is leveraging the benefits of emerging technologies, which is not only benefitting it currently but is also showing a promising future for the healthcare sector.
From AI to IoT and ML, emerging technologies have shown unparalleled advantages for the Healthcare industry where not only the patients' interaction with doctors become more accessible, but also the diagnosis of diseases got eased.

This presents a massive potential for the Healthcare sector in the current and future, where healthcare will only prosper with emerging technologies and their applications.
