It is the age of giving orders verbally to your smartphone, which, very obediently, runs all our errands, like calling someone or finding something online. We, as consumers love services and products which put us in a place of power- this quite explains why e-health solutions are increasingly growing in popularity.
A contemporary concept in healthcare, e-health solutions are user-centric services that take a comprehensive view of the health setup. These solutions are about self-management of health conditions, chronic or acute, at the heart of which, lies the user.
Likewise, there is telemedicine, which utilizes information technology channels for the delivery of medical care across states, countries and continents too.
Digital solutions like these enable collaboration and communication across networks of providers that include the service users, their family, caregivers, nurses, clinicians, as well as allied health professionals. They are also characterized by their high usability as these services need to be availed by people of all ages and types.
E-health solutions are accessible for all, regardless of the geographic location; they enable users to record, share and receive health-related data with/from their clinicians from a place of their choosing. One thing that needs to be mentioned here is that this relay of medical data, reports and information is completely secure within the sharing framework to guarantee confidentiality and privacy.
Users are the primary participants for early warning and management for chronic conditions that are aimed at training them to recognize the early warning signals and thereby prevent any adverse occurrences.
Telemedicine and e-health solutions utilize novel technology in order to improve care delivery for patients and develop connected systems that empower users by giving them control of their own health.
These digital healthcare solutions prevent disruption of normal lives for all users due to medical issues and eventually lead to solving all the challenges faced by the healthcare industry at a global level.
