Top CIOs create a blueprint on how the hospitals and the healthcare sector overall will look and transform by 2020 and beyond. As the healthcare sector continues to evolve with the use of technology, it will blur the line between hospitals and homes.
With more and more use of IoT and connected devices, one may not need to go to any diagnostic center. Home will be the hospital and there will be a partnership between wellness providers and health care providers for a more effective and holistic treatment.
A mobile will monitor all health parameters, and alert the doctor with the data collected. The doctor will give a digital prescription and this will be automatically ordered at the online pharmacy. Medicines will be delivered at the desired location.
Hospitals in 2020 will no more be sprawling institutions spread across acres of land. Hospitals will be visited only in the case of procedures and chronic ailments.
Precise and standardized procedures will make sure that at any given time, a patient will not lose out on time waiting for a specialist. With the help of technology, a generalist will be able to do what the specialist does.
Using IBeacons in hospitals will not only alert doctors and nurses of their daily assigned duties on their phones but also alert them in case of an emergency.
In the supermarket of the future, the food items we buy will be the result of combined data delivered through smart home appliances. Supermarkets will be able to make real time suggestions on products to buy.
