Top Healthcare Technologies to Look Forward To In 2022 And Beyond
CEO Ram Tumuluri “Healthcare technologies include all devices, medications, vaccinations, procedures, and systems designed to expedite healthcare operations, minimize costs, and improve the overall quality of healthcare services. In this blog, we’ve put together a list of 5 healthcare technologies to look forward to in 2022 and beyond.”
Ram Tumuluri “There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the digital healthcare industry than right now.”
Artificial intelligence (AI)
There’s nothing quite as exciting as AI right now, and with rapid growth and exciting opportunities surrounding it – it’s the best time to utilize its potential for healthcare marketing. In the healthcare industry, common use of AI includes NLP applications that can evaluate unstructured clinical notes on patients, providing invaluable insight into quality, procedure improvement, and better patient outcomes. The use of AI within healthcare is expected to grow rapidly at an annual rate of 40% through 2021.
Blockchain in healthcare isn’t merely for the sake of the hype that bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies have created. Instead, the digital record-keeping that provides a ledger of transactions that is not only visible but also difficult to tamper with is what’s intriguing about blockchain. Blockchain is here for the long haul with a range of experts, some of whom are wary about bitcoin, claiming that the technology might fundamentally revolutionize the way large sectors work – including digital healthcare marketing.
Chatbots in healthcare
Chatbots in healthcare provide a slew of advantages that we’re quite excited about. A lot can be done in 2022 in terms of healthcare marketing, including better patient routes, medication management, and assistance in emergencies or with first aid.
When it comes to healthcare, providing a personalized experience is crucial, and a chatbot adds another touchpoint that customers appreciate. With the fast proliferation of chatbots, it’s becoming increasingly commonplace rather than the gimmick it once was.
Virtual reality (VR)
By 2022, virtual reality is predicted to be worth $4 billion, and there’s no reason why healthcare can’t get in on the action. There’s plenty to be excited about, whether using VR to give an immersive experience for patients to virtually visit a health institution or using VR to help patients cope with pain. VR is a type of technology that generate a lot of customer engagement and using it wisely can be extremely valuable to any healthcare organization.
3D bioprinting is a technology used in healthcare to create artificial limbs, joint replacement parts, organs, and bio tissues. The pioneers of this technology are EnvisionTEC and Organovo. Personalized medications are also manufactured via 3D bio-printing. In recent years, 3D printing has shown tremendous potential for the future of medicine, and its growth is unstoppable. For example, engineers at the University of Buffalo have developed a revolutionary technology that speeds up the printing process. The fact that this hydrogen-based technique is much faster than previous 3D printing processes is remarkable.
