Improved service quality, provider efficiency and patient comfort are just some of the benefits that emerge from the development of healthcare.

We were skeptical at first. In part, the pandemic forced us to adapt quickly to the digital world, whether we wanted to or not. We all agree that advances in healthcare technology have made our lives easier in some ways.

After we’ve all gotten used to the hustle and bustle of technology, here are some of the trends in healthcare to note:

Telehealth

This includes video conferencing, streaming media and phone calls, among others. It’s convenient because it can be done from the comfort of your home. The less human interaction, the better for me.

Mobile apps to keep an eye on health

We love the convenience of health tracking apps, even if it is still important to go to our monthly or annual checkups. Mobile health tracking apps help us stay up to date on our health. They vary from mental wellbeing, diagnostic tools, maternal care, medical calculators, and much more.

Wearable electronics

Wearable tech is no longer limited to smart watches. Further advances are:

iTBra

A smart wearable bra insert that enables accurate early detection of breast cancer.

MUSE

Is a brand sensitive headband that allows you to refocus during the day and relax at night. It is worn around the head and inserted into the ears while relaxing meditation music is played.

Upright Pro

This monitor sticks to your back and tracks the movements of your spine. It is designed to correct your posture and fight pain. It vibrates when it detects it has got stuck.

Digitization of medical records

The digitization of medical records reduces the risk of over-medication, under-medication or missing diagnoses.
