As most people are still evaluating and setting a few New Year’s Resolutions, it may be time to add a few to your list as a medical professional. While the pandemic doesn’t seem to be lessening any restrictions, it looks like the need for remote access to care is going to continue to be the norm as we dive deeper into 2021. The need for digital medicine goes beyond just televisits and extends into the entire ambulatory patient care journey.
While we have not quite reached Terminator status where AI and machines will take over the world, we have come to a place where technology that is connected to the internet is improving the ability for physicians to monitor, collect data, assess and proactively intervene to improve the patient care journey. A big part of this is the rise of Healthcare IoT.
