What does the future of healthcare look like?
It takes little imagination to see technology integrated into every step of the process. In fact, we add a bit more to it each day. No matter what capacity you enter the system, whether as a patient or as the head of a large medical practice, eHealth is being implemented as:
Electronic Health Records - enables easy communication between different healthcare professionals
Lifetime Health Records - full aggregation of individual electronic health records capturing population-based tracking to both predict and anticipate future events
Telehealth - includes all types of physical and psychological remote monitoring that does not require a patient to travel to see a specialist
Public Health Education - complex media channels that allow citizens to stay informed on a variety of health and medical related topics
Virtual Healthcare Teams - healthcare professionals who collaborate and share information on patients and events
And of course, this is just a start.
