Mobile, Big Data, Cloud, and Media, which are called the four pillars of IT, will be the main focus for the next generation in healthcare. Gartner sees these four pillars as the core of energy, and this is the main focus of business for every technology provider. Let’s take a look at the four principles and apply them to the healthcare world.
Mobile: We are beginning an era in which consumers rely on mobile devices as a portable computer. All other industries are using mobile apps to provide a user interface network. When was your last walk to a bank to deposit your cheque? The last time you went to a travel agent’s office to book a flight? With the use of mobile devices, the growing industry is focusing on providing customer support and trying to capture healthcare. When modern consumer generation wants to see doctors from afar, they require appropriate mobile devices. Doctors and physicians will need on-demand critical patient information and access through a mobile device. We are moving into an era of “mobile-only.”
Big Data: Big Data is the latest buzzword, and one of the main ways to use Big Data to solve problems in healthcare. Let’s go back and think about how a hospital works traditionally. It was the number one game where the hospital aimed to keep patients in their beds packed as much as possible. A healthy patient will turn out to be a population benefit. It believed that the future policy of hospital management is to keep patients away from going to the hospital and to provide preventive care to reduce the cost of health care. Here comes the big data. A variety of data can be used to predict clinical outcomes or, better yet, predict patient behavior and provide patient awareness to lead a healthy lifestyle. Coordination and sharing of data between hospitals, insurance providers, pharmaceuticals, and other sectors help to reduce the cost of health care and to share information. That is critical to improving the quality of people’s health care.
Cloud: There are two benefits of shifting to the cloud. It has proven to be beneficial for both health care providers and patients, respectively. In terms of business, cloud computing has proven to be successful in reducing operational costs while allowing hospitals to provide high-quality, personalized treatment. Patients who are becoming more and more accustomed to receiving emergency treatment are also benefiting from the same acceleration from the health sector. Clouds also enhance patient participation in their health care plans. It is allowing them to access their health care information, which will lead to better outcomes for patients. The democratization of healthcare data and their availability of online facilities, as well as the opening of patients, are breaking down barriers to access to healthcare.
