How Tech Is Transforming The Healthcare Industry

blog

We are witnessing a great revolution in the healthcare world primarily due to giant leaps being made in the realms of AI, 3D printing, robotics, ML, and nanotechnology. As discussed at several tech conferences in Dubai, this trend is here to stay. As we slowly step into a post-pandemic world, we will see more collaborations between technologists and healthcare professionals to improve healthcare models and make them more patient-centric. Here are a few instances of how technology has made inroads in the industry:

Exoskeletons

Exoskeletons are external wearable machines that can be used to enhance one’s mobility, strength, or for additional support. Its development has been a harbinger of hope for people living with disabilities or injuries as it can accelerate the orthopedic rehabilitation process and also boost their range of movement. It has shown a lot of promise in helping individuals with spinal cord injuries to walk again. Given that investments are flowing into this field, we expect to hear news of more such innovations which may completely change how we look at rehabilitation in the coming years.

3D Printing

3D printing was once a mere dream, but things have changed in this decade! What makes 3D printing such a hit in the healthcare industry is that one can fabricate custom instruments and prosthetic parts depending on the anatomy and individual needs of a patient. Leading experts at previous IT conferences have also highlighted that the costs of production of 3D printed devices are comparatively lower than traditional ones.

While we have already seen that 3D printers can print instruments such as forceps, hemostats, and clamps, they can also be used to print prosthetics for human use. As of now, the bladder is the only working 3D-printed organ that’s been transplanted into a human being. Researchers are developing 3D printed livers and kidneys, so we could soon be looking at a future with no organ transplant shortages.

Machine Learning

Machine learning’s ability to analyze a vast range of data within seconds can be really useful in healthcare institutions. By turning to information procured from previous medical records with the help of ML, healthcare providers can make better diagnoses. In addition to this, it can prove to be a crucial resource in medical imaging, which in turn will lead to more accurate and patient-friendly treatment solutions.

We have also seen instances of machine learning tools being used to support drug discovery. Given its potential in this realm, many key players have entered the arena, including Google.

Conclusion

These are simply a few examples of how new technologies are making disease identification, drug delivery, and discovery, as well as patient care easier. The contributions of the tech world to healthcare have been immensely significant and this is just the beginning!

To stay updated with tech news and how innovations are reshaping critical industries, book your seat for IT conferences, such as the Internet 2.0 Conference! Prepare to be enthralled by remarkable speakers and thought leaders who will be unveiling and carefully dissecting the latest happenings in the exciting world of tech.
