Healthcare Technology is an expanding business that is truly changing lives. New technology is truly awe-inspiring. On one level, companies are providing hospitals with data analysis that allow healthcare providers to work more efficiently. For instance, ARAMARK Health Care Technologies focuses on synthesizing technology to better manage work-flow and inventory. Other companies, such as GE Healthcare, are inventing the technologies that companies like ARMARK are integrating into healthcare providers tech system.
These new technologies however do not come with out their problems. Healthcare professionals have to adapt to the new technology. They often learned their practice without these new technologies, so it is difficult for them to understand how to integrate the new technology into their profession. This video discusses how medical professionals are adapting to new technology.
As Eric Dishman said, the healthcare industry is not nearly as efficient as it should be. Perhaps most shocking is that doctors often find themselves in front of a patient without the necessary information or chart. Dishman goes on to show how new technology can eliminate the slack in the healthcare industry. Conference calls and more powerful ways of gauging patient’s health allows doctors to quickly and effectively make proper recommendations. Furthermore, it is easier for doctors to keep tabs on the recovery or deterioration of their patients.
It is obvious that their are inefficiencies in the healthcare industry, and technology is the solution. As Dishman said, it may be immoral for doctors to not integrate technology into their practice. Healthcare technology is rapidly improving, and the providers need to focus their efforts on effectively utilizing the power of this new technology. If the technology can be properly synthesized into a tech system, I may eventually have the option to live forever.
