Data security in healthcare is a widely discussed topic in the Australian media and, with the launch of My Health Record and advancements in information being stored digitally, as healthcare professionals, we are becoming increasingly cautious in order to protect the data of our employees and patients.
At the heart of a patient centred care model is an empowered patient, equipped with all the information and support necessary to make informed decisions about their health. However, with the unique challenges facing today’s healthcare industry, including inefficiencies and rising costs, it is crucial that medical practices embrace technologies that facilitate patient-centred care with greater efficiency, all while reducing clinical risk.
The Age of Information has changed us all. Unprecedented access to information has transformed the way we think and behave. People are becoming more diligent and informed in their decision making, whether it be for everyday purchases or lifesaving medical treatment. With greater understanding and autonomy, comes a desire for greater personalisation, convenience and transparency — so what does that mean for businesses today?
Everyone can agree on the benefits of electronic health records to reduce the administrative burden and the potential for errors — in fact, the digital trend is complemented well by the transition to cloud based infrastructures that prioritises accessibility.
The use of mobile devices in healthcare is a transformative trend set to improve the patient and practitioner relationship. With 24/7 access to patient data from any device in any location, specialists can use empowering technology to provide better patient care and reduce inefficiencies — and that’s only the beginning. We’ve compiled these several benefits to demonstrate how mobile devices are transforming healthcare, for patients and practitioners alike.
