Introduction
New healthcare delivery alternatives were beginning to emerge
before the epidemic affected practically every aspect of industry.
COVID-19, on the other hand, was the trigger that accelerated those
developments, pushing healthcare professionals to make the long-
awaited move to a patient-centered approach.
Businesses of all types have to pivot to new means of communicating
with their consumers as a result of the worldwide movement to
socially distance, stay at home, and flatten the curve.
The epidemic encouraged investments in novel care delivery systems
such as phone, video, remote patient monitoring, and at-home care.
While the change was not always simple, it meant the difference
between seeking aid and delaying it permanently for many people.
What is Virtual Healthcare?
Virtual healthcare is the delivery of health services to a patient
outside of a health system using technology such as telephones,
video, mobile applications, text-based messaging, and other
communication platforms. Virtual care is enabled by these
technologies, but virtual healthcare is more than that. The actual
provision of treatment to faraway patients via technology is known as
virtual healthcare.
Virtual healthcare is critical for health systems to reach and serve
more people while also solving resource and manpower limitations.
Second views, consultations, chronic illness treatment, and remote
monitoring of specific disorders are all possible with virtual
healthcare.
Benefits of Virtual Health Care
1.24/7 Access to Quality Health Care: Virtual care can enable
speedy access to board-certified doctors for persons who are unable
to see their usual doctor or who are uncomfortable seeing a doctor in
person owing to fears of becoming ill or infecting others. With
virtual care, you can get help whenever and wherever you want it,
with access to health specialists online or over the phone. Virtual care
services are provided by reliable sources like hospital groups or your
health insurance plan, and they assist keep your medical data up to
date after your visit. For details on how to use virtual care, contact
your primary care physician or insurance provider.
2. Cost-Effective: Virtual visits are typically far less expensive than
non-emergency trips to an urgent care facility or the emergency
room. For example, a trip to the ER for a sinus infection in the United
States might cost up to $740, but a virtual visit for the same condition
is approximately $45; or even less.
3. No Waiting: Unlike in-person appointments, when you may have
to wait for a health care practitioner, virtual care sessions follow a
rigorous schedule with no downtime. You may complete the
appointment without having to wait in a waiting room from the
convenience of your own home.
4. Coordinated Care: While virtual care is often associated with
detecting short-term viruses or illnesses, it can also assist doctors in
monitoring and coordinating treatment for long-term or post-
hospital patients. The doctor can transmit electronic records of your
appointment to your primary care doctor after your virtual visit.
Telemedicine is also an important part of health-care innovation.
Digital thermometers, blood pressure monitors, and other devices
are now available to assist with not just short-term diagnosis but also
the treatment and tracking of chronic illnesses. Technology
integration in health care will increase the convenience and speed
with which care is provided.
Different Tech trends in Virtual Healthcare in 2022
1.Internet of Medical Things and Wearables
As a result of COVID-19, the need for remote healthcare has
increased. Experts recognized the need of developing connectivity
solutions that allow doctors to interact with their patients from any
location. In this regard, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a
promising field.
It is now feasible to monitor patients without making weekly trips to
the doctor’s office thanks to the use of particular devices. A good
internet connection is all that is required.
Inhalers, contemporary smart mattresses, EKG, and ECG gadgets, for
example, make data transfer with telemedicine software more
convenient. Using these technologies for telemedicine has a number
of advantages. They can, for example, enhance productivity, boost
patient mobility, and enable health monitoring.
2. Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) in 2022
COVID-19 also helped to establish remote patient monitoring as a
long-term medical trend. Virtual healthcare is becoming increasingly
popular, as seen by online consultations, online treatment, and
teleconferencing. Because of the wide selection of IoMT devices
available, RPM has even more possibilities.
In the long run, hands-free engagement will be one of the most
significant technological improvements in sales cycle management.
That’s because RPM saves time and money for medical businesses of
all sizes.
Obtaining RPM in the future will enable for the integration of hands-
free and on-site operations to provide the suitable service appearance
for varied patient groups.
3. Augmented Reality
By combining online healthcare services with augmented reality,
researchers can improve telemedicine systems (AR). They can
increase the accuracy of a wide range of procedures. AR, for instance,
can assist with patient transportation.
Different levels of experience may be required for different types of
healthcare services. Individualized apps are already assisting in the
discovery of therapy choices.
Smart eyeglasses, dental equipment, and vein sensors are just a few
examples of augmented reality technologies. Other AR solutions
allow surgeons to project their fingers onto an AR-enabled surgeon’s
display on-site, get instructions during surgeries, study 3D models,
and much more.
4. Virtual Reality
Existing health IT breakthroughs like augmented reality (AR) and
virtual reality (VR) will see even more uses in the near future. Virtual
reality technology may be utilized to improve a range of medical
functions, both on-site and online.
VR applications in health include surgical training, educating clinical
students using real-case simulations, and developing virtual hospital
experiences.
Furthermore, the technique has the potential to improve lung
scanning quality, perhaps saving countless lives in the fight against
Coronavirus.
In general, we think of virtual reality as a cool technology. Its impact
on healthcare, on the other hand, is more salutary than amusing.
5. Big Data and Artificial Intelligence
More technologies can be applied to increase telemedicine system
productivity. Artificial intelligence in Telehealth and big-data
analysis are examples of advanced telemedicine technology.
They’re both great add-ons since they can gather, analyze, and
evaluate large volumes of data, resulting in far better treatment
recommendations for patients.
In the medical field, a high percentage of patients have encountered
AI in some way. This technology, for example, is used to power
chatbots for client assistance and treatment.
Artificial intelligence has the potential to improve healthcare service
productivity and outcomes. AI, machine learning, and big data can
detect symptoms, social status, traits, age, and other factors that may
impact therapy. You can make data-driven decisions using this
information.
It’s no surprise that AI’s use in the healthcare business will develop
fast in the next years.
Conclusion
In today’s healthcare, virtual healthcare plays an important role.
Better outcomes and healthier populations result from nurses and
caregivers’ capacity to engage with patients no matter where they are.
Virtual healthcare is critical for health systems to reach and
serve individuals while also addressing their commercial
restrictions. Second views, consultations, chronic illness
treatment, and remote monitoring of specific disorders are all
possible with virtual healthcare.
As virtual healthcare’s capabilities increase and its use grows more
widespread, health systems must respond with practical ways to
accommodate this demand.
