What Technology Has Got to Offer Clinicians

From advanced clinical equipment to new treatment discoveries, technology accelerates as an unstoppable force to empower the medical industry.

FREMONT, CA: Medical technology shows the extensive potential of innovation and creates rapid acceleration in the existing solutions. Different innovative applications, such as advanced wearable sensors, intelligent communication systems, health trackers, and more open the doors to next-generation medical facilities with smart features. Technologies like big data, artificial intelligence, integrated sensors, and data analytics contribute to the growth and success of the medical industry. Medical professionals across the world take huge advantages of emerging technologies to achieve advanced treatment potentialities.  

With the explosion of advanced clinical equipment and devices, the most important and beneficial impact is the ability of remote patient monitoring. Medical care providers approach the innovative solutions for in-depth analysis of patients' health condition and proactively offer precise suggestions for instant treatment. Providing and accessing the clinical settings may not be possible every time, hence the contributions of emerging medical technologies to create seamless communications between medical experts and patients bring revolution in the medical industry. The advanced sensors with in-depth analytical benefits improve remote health monitoring outcomes. Smartphone-based medical applications, integrated medical devices, and connected IoTs allow doctors, surgeons, and medical professionals to track and analyze patient's medical conditions. The smooth communication allows medical experts to perform regular check-ups irrespective of patients’ location, automatically send reminders and notifications for necessary drug intake, assist in case of emergencies, and more.

Today advanced technology provides wearable skin sensors with the capabilities to analyze sweat and provide real-time health updates of the human body. The smart sensors contain spiraling microscopic tubes or microfluidics and track the speed of sweat movement to detect dehydration or fatigue. The microfluidics with the chemical sensors helps measure the electrolytes like potassium and sodium and metabolites such as glucose. Sensors analyze sweat to examine its various constituents like salts, sugars, which are essential for measuring bodily conditions.

Chronic disease management providers offer personalized health reminders to users through mobile apps. The applications focus on chronic conditions like diabetes by sending alerts and notifications to the patients and reminding them to measure their blood sugar timely, eat low-starch contain food and other personalized suggestions. The emerging techniques tend to improvise over time by studying user’s behavioral changes. Health applications also offer glucose monitoring and test strips for diabetic patients, including behavioral health and obesity.

Artificial intelligence-integrated wearable devices help to measure the patient’s pulse, respiration, oxygen saturation, temperature, and mobility. Offering real-time updates to the physicians regarding the patient’s health conditions, intelligent medical devices allow physicians to handle complications effectively. Artificial intelligence helps medical experts analyze the collected medical data and identify health issues. The smart devices are popular among patients with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and heart failure. With the ability to track respiration and pulse data accurately, the remote monitoring tools effectively analyze the early warning signs and reduce the healthcare cost of the patients.

Today, doctors, surgeons, or medical experts can efficiently connect to their patients and provide immediate medical care. In the cases of emergency, the doctors can virtually reach out to patients in real-time through numerous medical innovations. Technology contributes to building smart hospitals equipped with smart devices and facilities and creating a sound environment for treatment. With connected and integrated equipment, medical professionals increase efficiency and reduce time-loss in the treatment process. Building a better and healthy world, technology continues to explore new possibilities and amaze the medical industry.
