Although there are tons of forces that are changing the face of today’s healthcare, Elly Kleinman, Americare founder, argues that nothing will change the way nursing is practiced more than current advances in technology. In the past couple of years, we’ve witnessed amazing innovations in technology, that are changing the world at a rapid speed, and the healthcare industry is no exception to the rise in disruptive technology. In fact, probably nowhere is this more evident than in healthcare settings. Over the past fifty years medical technology has experienced explosive growth on a global scale, and in the last decade in particular, healthcare has moved toward customized, individualized treatment.
The scope of these emerging technologies is breathtaking. With advanced technology within our reach, health providers are able to save lives, reduce healthcare costs and enable an aging population to lead longer, healthier lives, contributing to society and the economy along the way.
Elly Kleinman and the whole Americare Companies keep their finger on the pulse of modern technology to deliver remote health care solutions that will help seniors to take their own vital signs and send them to caregivers for remote medical monitoring.
Not long ago, wristbands that recorded the number of steps people took became available on the market. This kind of apps that stored biorhythms paved the way for a new generation of gadgets that have become serious tools in improving health care outcomes.
Kleinman, who has been in the healthcare industry for decades, sees a lot of potential in smart technologies. Conventional monitoring and recording systems are slowly replaced by devices like smartphones and tablets, which gives people the option of having a full consultation in the privacy and comfort of their own homes.
And as the new year is upon us we are already seeing amazing advancements in healthcare technology, as it is increasingly playing a role in almost all processes, from patient registration to data monitoring, from lab tests to self-care tools. This new, medical technology provides earlier diagnoses, personalized treatments and a breathtaking range of other benefits for both patients and health care professionals.
According to the Americare CEO, there are many emerging technologies that will change the practice of nursing in the years to come, as the reach of technological innovation continues to grow.
