Valentin Preda, Board Member htss, for ZiarulFinanciar.ro: How does digitalization improve the quality of healthcare? Digital has reshaped the doctor-patient experience for the better
The digital revolution is increasingly transforming the way healthcare processes are managed, making them more efficient while providing better quality of service and reducing response times for patients. Many of the innovations in the healthcare industry aim to improve life expectancy, diagnostic processes and the efficiency of the healthcare environment as a whole.
In Romania, for over 10 years, htss has been actively campaigning for the digitalization of the industry, providing its clients with a very wide range of business software solutions for companies in the medical, pharmaceutical and other fields. The mission of htss is to help companies in the healthcare industry to provide outstanding patient experiences and services.
“Because innovation plays a critical role in the sustainability of healthcare systems, managers need to understand how new approaches, based on disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence or machine learning, can deliver long-term economic benefits. These technologies will play a crucial role in shaping the future, supporting the management of both administrative tasks and medical data, and enabling cooperation with other organizations to make diagnostic results more readily available,” says Valentin Preda, Board Member htss
Technological trends in the context of healthcare
From mobile medical apps and software that support the clinical decisions doctors make every day, to artificial intelligence and machine learning, technology has led to a true revelation in healthcare. Digital health tools have huge potential to improve the ability to accurately diagnose and treat disease. Today’s solutions mean platforms, connectivity, specific software, data analytics and more.
Data analytics and its importance in healthcare
Data analytics is one of the biggest technological changes in healthcare. Useful information derived from massive amounts of data leads to a quick and accurate diagnosis. For example, platforms and apps that store, transmit and analyse medical data can be used to identify patients who are suitable candidates for specific therapies. Moreover, technologies are becoming so advanced that robots and virtual assistants can record data during medical procedures in real time.
Given all the valuable insights from data analysis, it’s important to have technologies that turn these insights into solutions that facilitate diagnosis, improve predictive interventions, and optimize clinician productivity.
There is clear evidence already showing that the use of artificial intelligence-based solutions increase business productivity, help optimize costs and positively transform the quality of healthcare services. Artificial intelligence also delivers superior and personalized patient experiences.
“Digitalization in healthcare has given rise to numerous tools and resources that are transforming healthcare delivery. We can talk about software that makes patient information increasingly accessible and keeps patient data secure in the cloud. The time when people waited for a phone call from the doctor just to find out the results of tests is gone. Thanks to electronic health records (EHRs), for example, patients can easily view test results, bills, medical history and more directly from a patient portal, desktop or mobile device. Digital has reshaped the doctor-patient experience for the better,” continues Valentin Preda.
