Healthcare has invariably been a priority for the end-users, especially among the urban population across the globe, which has been augmenting the growth rate of the healthcare sector for several decades. In the recent past, the incorporation of the Internet of things (IoT) has revolutionized the healthcare products market. The use of IoT with smart healthcare products enables medical practitioners to measure, monitor, and access patient conditions remotely. Data is now transferred almost instantly, which is speeding up the treatment process. Here are some of the trends in the global market for smart healthcare products:
Cloud-based Electronic Health Record
Electronic health records on the cloud are less costly for healthcare facilities to actualize and redesign, since such facilities are not continually investing in new equipment. For this reason, it is expected that more vendors would be offering cloud-based electronic health records.
Patient-portal-equipped Electronic Health Record
Patients are keen on utilizing the portal in different ways. Whether it is to contact their suppliers, pay charges, or to access other critical data, it is believed that patients are more comfortable with signing onto a concentrated portal. Also, while such portals are used by doctors, healthcare facilities can also use patient portals for correspondence. It is expected that by 2016, such portals will be supported by significant up-gradations, including more components that would permit patients to record their own health-related data.
Mobile-friendly Electronic Health Record
Clinical need EHRs that they can access from remote devices like tablets or smartphones. In order to meet these demands, numerous EHRs are expected to overhaul their interfaces to be mobile friendly, prompting more comfort for healthcare administrators and medical attendants.
