The digital era and state-of-the-art hospitals should go hand-in-hand


All has been smart in today’s digital world. Smart has gone from phones, watches, televisions, and even our vehicles. All our everyday gadgets and appliances can be run on a single computer with the aid of the Internet of Things (IoT) and connected devices. Our user experience has been linked and refined and enhanced by the smart era. It’s clear that the digital bug has bit the world. In this digital age, where technology makes our lives easy, it can help monitor our health, thereby growing our longevity, technology also helps save lives in the healthcare section.

Smart hospitals in India are a trend that is gaining momentum. The aim of a smart hospital is to update, restore hospitals, manage facilities and use high-end medical devices. The implementation of new-age technology aims to make hospitals fully compliant with clinical practices and systems of management.

New ways and smart medical devices to enhance current patient care practices are being embraced by Indian hospitals with basic facilities and infrastructure. This will help to turn automation, precision medical advice, and telemedicine into the way healthcare is viewed in India.

The global demand for smart hospitals is estimated at over $22.2 billion and is expected to be over $83.1 billion by 2026, according to a report. The trajectory is focused on the increasingly rising demand for digital computers, artificial intelligence services, and better medical devices. Stress Detection and Alleviation System, Laboratory Information Management System, Electronic Medical Record, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology for the management of staff materials, and the supply chain are some of the technologies used in a smart hospital.

At a diagnostic point, technology-oriented smart hospitals will help diagnose disease, saving lifetime earnings for some and saving precious life in the disease most significantly is life-threatening.

The demand for healthcare services has steadily risen throughout the current pandemic. Intelligent and related hospital procedures can help to maintain a social gap between infected patients and non-infected patients, allowing us to monitor the growth and spread of the virus. The patient’s need for improved healthcare services, which was not the case with pre-COVID, is growing. In providing greater patient satisfaction, versatility, and with the help of new-age technology, smart hospitals can play a vital role.
