We’re sure there has been a time where you have stumbled across an app that you hope will improve your health in some way. Fitness, weight loss or health monitoring; internet users are becoming more fixed on AI for health related issues. In fact, 52% of smartphone users gather health-related information on their phones, for reasons that are fairly easy to explain.
For an improved healthcare environment, digitising is bringing computer technology, information science, and health advice together into a symbiotic relationship. The modernisation of records and computing infrastructure are just some of the helpful additions that now collaborate together to help you get health assistance on the move.
Here are 5 ways in which digitising health assistance is going to transform your welfare!
1. A More Systematic, High-Quality Care
By ways of communicating digitally with your personal doctor, Abi creates ‘decision support’. Based on symptoms and patients’ records, decision support can lower the cost of advice by using real-time data and reduce the likelihood of medication error.
Standardised workflows can consistently limit variation in the system, therefore results can be automated to improve efficiencies with ‘one click flows’, based on the symptoms and queries you provide.
2. More Proactive And Targeted Care
“[Productivity] doesn’t just come from putting an electronic medical record in, it comes from… [using] the data across the continuum to predict and prompt, and it’s a whole different ballgame.”

By using predictive analytics, remote community monitoring is anticipated to reduce admissions and readmissions. Meaning supports shift from reactive to proactive care pre empting and avoiding problems.
Health assistants are designed to be user friendly. By single access point for all clinical information across large complex providers – they improve clinical decision making and efficiency.
3. Improved Access To Specialist Expertise
Artificial intelligence reduces A&E attendances and hospital admissions which improves the patient outcomes by waiting time, money and assertiveness of results.
4. Mobility and Cloud access
Your local GP, your hospital, and insurance companies, are now storing your medical records in the cloud. So if at any point, you need to access test results, you can do so, online 24/7. Just be connected to WiFi!
5. Contribution To The Overall Improved Population Health
The cloud of results and shared real-time data have been better able to conduct health research. Based on patients records, artificial intelligence can achieve big improvements in health advice.
