Healthcare Informatics Research and Innovation

Introduction

Health care technologies constitute all medicines, devices, systems, and procedures that are made to streamline healthcare operations, lower the costs incurred and also enhance the quality of care given to individuals. Chatbots, Artificial Intelligence, blockchains, and virtual realities are among the most promising health care technologies in 2021(“9 health technologies every executive should be excited about in 2021,” 2021). For a long time, most health care executives have been unsatisfied with the lack of adequate technological methods and marketing strategies for true marketing personalization. Digital transformations of healthcare ecosystems have both been explosive and rapid. The IoT and web-based driven ecosystems promise a future for the universally reachable and intelligent healthcare, patients privacy, nurses, doctors, and healthcare providers is of more concern recently than in the past(Iyengar et al., 2018). As such, there is the need to protect the patients’ privacy while linking their medical records is also crucial in ensuring proper healthcare.

Currently Emerging Healthcare Technology Systems

The currently emerging technologies in the health care sector include; Artificial Intelligence, Blockchains, and chatbots (“9 health technologies every executive should be excited about in 2021,” 2021). All these information technologies are relevant since they aid enhance the patients’ safety by decreasing medication errors, decreasing adverse drug reactions, and also enhancing compliance to various practice guidelines. As such, health information technologies are vital for improving healthcare safety and quality.

Utilizing Artificial Intelligence in the health sector is expected to increase to a yearly rate of about 40% through 2021 to about $6.6 billion from close to $600 million in 2014(“9 health technologies every executive should be excited about in 2021,” 2021). The artificial intelligence engines are capable of mitigating risks of preventable medical scenarios in various ways which include automating reminders that are relevant in helping patients take their medication within a specific time frame.

Chatbots in the health care sector has a variety of benefits which include offering customer service to patients. Blockchain is also relevant in the sector since it positively impacts the digital marketing of the sector through changing the data collection strategies, fixing advertisements via digital plays, and ensuring the security of various digital assets. The ledger technology ensures the safe transfer of patients’ information, manages the effective medicine supply within the health care sector, and also helps various health care researchers to unlock the genetic code.

Goal for the Product

Blockchain is a crucial research area for a long and the benefits it offers have been used by various industries not excluding the health industry. The health sector benefits from blockchain technology as a result of decentralization, security, privacy, and confidentiality. Electronic Health Records (EHR) are prone to various challenges regarding data security thus it’s crucial to have an effective security management system that is beneficial in ensuring the security of data in the health sector. As such the goal of blockchain technology in the health sector is to ensure the safe transfer of patients’ information, manage the effective medicine supply within the health care sector and also help various health care researchers to unlock the genetic code.

Recently, Electronic Health Records (EHR) permit the updating and sharing of medical information on given patients within a particular organization or network. All these could be extended if the data were organized such as the information on the topmost block chain layer was only the personally identifiable information. having these would allow the researchers to have easy access to vast spectrums of data with cohorts of plenty of patients (“Blockchain applications in healthcare,” 2021). The availability of such large amounts of data would facilitate clinical research, safety event, and diversified event identification and reporting, and also public health reporting.

The Healthcare Setting including Education

The healthcare setting represents a wide broad of services and locations in which healthcare occurs including rehabilitation centers, acute care hospitals, urgent care centers, and nursing homes. The effects of continuing changes in the health care sector are majorly being faced by those individuals involved in the education and training in any healthcare setting. The desire for high-quality teaching staff was majorly enforced by the commitments to training and education, all of which are relevant in preparing both the students and staff for new roles and working areas.

Conclusion

To sum it all, health care informatics research and innovation are crucial since it aids in the understanding of various health care technologies. Health care technologies constitute all medicines, devices, systems, and procedures that are made to streamline healthcare operations, lower the costs incurred and also enhance the quality of care given to individuals. Chatbots, Artificial Intelligence, blockchains, and virtual realities are among the most promising health care technologies in 2021(“9 health technologies every executive should be excited about in 2021,” 2021). The currently emerging technologies in the health care sector include; Artificial Intelligence, Blockchains, and chatbots. These information technologies are relevant since they aid enhance the patients’ safety by decreasing medication errors, decreasing adverse drug reactions, and also enhancing compliance to various practice guidelines. As such, health information technologies are vital for improving healthcare safety and quality.
