Is HealthCare IT Improving? In a Word: Absolutely

Is HealthCare IT Improving? In a Word: Absolutely

Improvements in technology have allowed us to come a long way since the days of our ancestors, which is made exceptionally clear by our developments in the realm of healthcare. There are so many ways that healthcare providers can use information technology to their advantage, so we’ll cover a select few here.

Technologies That Help Improve Medical Care

Electronic Medical Records

The typical person will pretty rapidly build up a pretty considerable medical file, provided they are going to the doctor on a regular basis. Naturally, this is even more the case for individuals with chronic conditions or who fall ill more often than average. It is important that their physicians are able to reference this file as they plan for each patient’s care, to ensure that their strategy doesn’t interfere with a past decision.

Electronic medical records make this information easier to store and access, enabling doctors more data to work with as they provide their care. Secure platforms keep the private matters hidden from unauthorized viewing, while making it easier for a patient and a physician to stay informed. 

3D Printing

While certainly not something one might have expected to find in this list, 3D printing has proven to have true benefits to healthcare. Crafting prosthetics and other customized materials has become far more precise than it once was, making outcomes far more effective for patients. This has actually led to other advances in medicine, allowing doctors to now craft replacement organs, tissues, and skin for patients in need.

Robot-Assisted Surgery

Many surgeons are renowned for the stillness of their hands as they operate, but as a human being, there are going to be limits to what they can do by hand. That’s why devices have been developed that can give them a much better view and more precise tools to work with as they command a robot that can get into places with less trauma and scarring to the patient. This combination of a physician’s talent with the unerring precision of a machine has created a much better way of performing surgeries and other complex procedures.
