This Is How Digitalization And Technology Will Be Impacting The Child Healthcare Sector In India
The growing healthcare industry in India is a sheer example of how an industry can get revolutionized with time by adapting to the latest trends and new age technologies. This adaptation has caused the Indian child healthcare sector to become one of the largest and fast emerging sectors in the current time.
Meanwhile, rising demands of quality healthcare for children along with health-centric products/services are acting as the chief elements that are driving the growth.
Atish Laddad, Founder & Director, Docterz shares, “With the amplified amount of affluence and awareness created about the present and upcoming healthcare trends among the Indian masses, the pediatric industry is sure to witness a gradual rise in the demand for access to better health care.”
Technologies invade the Industry
In today’s era, it’s almost impossible to find a business sector that is not affected by the technology tool. Since the world of medicine and healthcare is transforming rapidly, it’s necessary to utilize the current technologies for enhancing and bettering healthcare services.
Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Nanotechnology, and Computing are some innovations that have already invaded the child healthcare industry, proving to be really lucrative and beneficial.
“As child healthcare shifts to a model of any-time, any-place, incessant and modified care, it is significant to recognize the important technologies that will empower this evolution and work optimistically towards their application into diverse care settings,” adds Laddad.
Effective Patient Engagement
Digitalization and technologies are eventually causing the industry to revamp their operational structures. The modern-day people are comfortable towards exchanging knowledge and information through virtual platforms like social media and online medical research.
Laddad shares, “Today being an era of digitalization, many parents have health apps on their smartphones, and even health institutions are starting to catch up by effective offering tools: from iPads with apps that aid patients to track their health progress in the hospital, to offering interesting healthcare games with avatars that kids can play at home, thus encouraging them to take charge of their health.”
Artificial Intelligence is reducing the Human Work Load
The human capacity for evaluating and making decisions is believed to be superior to any other species that currently exists on the planet. But still, humans have their own limitations when it’s about calculating data and information quickly, especially in terms of larger volumes.
Laddad explains, “Artificial intelligence has the capability of making this process quicker by numerous degrees and far more resourceful and competent than humanly possible. With machine learning proficiencies, the technology’s child healthcare applications are limitless.”
“Some of the applications presently being developed are helping pediatricians, physicians and radiologists to make precise medical analysis and mining medical records data to recover the delivery of healthcare service in India,” he further adds.
