Like many other sectors, healthcare is entering a period of rapid change. Longevity and the advance of new technologies and discoveries – as well as innovative combinations of existing ones – are among the many factors driving patient empowerment, which is fundamentally changing how diseases would be prevented, diagnosed and cured.
The future of healthcare lies in working hand-in-hand with technology; and healthcare workers have to embrace emerging healthcare technologies in order to stay relevant in the coming years.
By moving primary care appointments online, telehealth will continue to be embedded and patients will come to expect a digital-first healthcare experience, where they are delivered care in a quick, convenient and safe manner. It will also reduce waiting times, improve flexibility as patients can speak to medical professionals at times they wouldn’t normally be able to, all the while maintaining the target of keeping people out of hospital and GP waiting rooms, unless they truly need to be there.
Patients are becoming more trusting of remote care technology—but even the best telehealth program is useless if patients are not aware that it exists. Start by notifying current and recent patients that telehealth is an option if they need or want to continue care.
There is still a lot of work to do, but we are systematically re-engineering the foundations of health sector to deliver high quality, accessible and affordable healthcare for all.
