As technology has improved the healthcare industry, the role of IT has increased in recent years. This has been a boon for both patients and providers. What role does technology play in patient care? Is technology having a positive effect on the patient experience? Let's look at the ways technology has improved patient care.

There are many things to consider when talking about patient care. The current moment in patient care is crucial. Modern technologies are replacing traditional healthcare practices to make them more accessible and efficient.

It is important to examine how IT solutions can be used in healthcare to improve patient care.

Healthcare Information Technology (HIT), the need:
Traditional healthcare was based on manual labor and mostly on paper. The majority of healthcare infrastructure was located in urban areas which made it more difficult for rural and urban residents to access the same healthcare. Rural patients also faced many obstacles.

Healthcare Information Technology (HIT) is the term for IT used in healthcare. We will now discuss HIT, its benefits for healthcare, and how it can improve the quality of patient care.

Let's face facts: It can be difficult for patients to remember to take their medicines on time, to store their medication orders safely, to refill their medicine orders at the right time, to keep their medical records discreetly, and so on. These problems can be solved by healthcare IT technologies. How? Let's take a look at each one.

How can advanced Healthcare IT Solutions affect patient care?
Accessible and Accurate Documentation: Healthcare involves heavy documentation of crucial data that can be subject to high-risk mix-ups. Many healthcare data, such as patient information, laboratory results, medication orders, and medication lists, are written on paper. These data are susceptible to being accessed or stolen by unauthorized persons, in addition to human error. Patients find handwritten information more difficult to understand and are at risk of making mistakes in transcription.
Electronic documentation is a secure and reliable way to store and distribute such data securely. How does electronic documentation improve access to such data?

HITs are advanced digital data management platforms and collection platforms. They are also known as Electronic Record Management Tools. They allow healthcare providers to electronically send and access patient data, and patients to edit and access that data from any location.

Streamlines Critical Tasks: IT solutions can automate repetitive tasks like online booking and data entry. This allows you to use your time for quality work and divert resources so that the patient experience is better.

Telemedicine: Telemedicine App Development solves two fundamental problems of healthcare--unavailability of doctors in rural areas and long traveling for doctor consultations.
Telemedicine/ doctor application allows patients to access virtual doctor consultations regardless of where they are located. Patients don't even have to travel to the doctor for visits. This improves productivity for everyone. This is great news for those who live in remote areas or for those with limited mobility.

IoT, Wearables, and Wearables: Patients can share real-time information with their doctor about their health like blood pressure and other conditions. Patients' survival rates are increased by having them alert doctors immediately in case of an emergency like a stroke or heart attack.

Personalized Medical advice: AI can learn from the large amount of data collected by different smart devices.

According to, a report by the World Health Organization, "The Health Information System" collects and analyzes data from the sector of health and other relevant sectors. It then converts the data into information that can be used for health-related decision-making.

These data can be used to provide immediate, personalized medical advice to patients by understanding their individual health conditions. This data can be useful in situations where doctors are unavailable.

Preventive Health Care: Wearables can collect data about patients, which doctors can use to diagnose and then take preventive measures.

Secure Medicine Order Store: A major drawback of traditional healthcare infrastructure was the need for patients to secure all of their medication orders. They face many obstacles if one of their medicine orders is lost. EMR (Electronic Medical Records), which stores all patient records and doctor notes securely, allows patients to access their data from any authorized device. Blockchain is the latest technology to protect health data. It creates an indestructible network that keeps patient data transparent and decentralized.

Reminder for Pills and Refills: Many digital solutions send reminders via push notifications, emails, or texts to patients regarding their pills. Patients will never forget to take their medication on time. Patients often forget to take their medications. Healthcare apps such as doctor apps and medication delivery apps remind patients to refill their medicines in advance.

Booking an appointment: In the past, patients had to wait in long lines and that wasn't enough to guarantee a scheduled appointment. Patients can wait up to an hour even if they are only going for routine checks. Patients no longer have to wait for hours in queues to book an appointment online. Patients can book an appointment at their preferred time and then travel to the clinic at that time with HITs.
Patient Education VR and AR allow patients to see the effects of medical procedures using 3D models. It is possible for doctors to see the effects of treatment in limited instances. It facilitates communication between doctors, and patients, and allows doctors to select the best treatment option for each patient.
Conclusion: Technology, particularly IT, has dramatically improved healthcare delivery. It streamlines processes, reduces operational costs, and increases efficiency. This has led to a higher standard in healthcare. Modern healthcare is not just good for patients but also for society.
