Digital Health in the COVID-19 Era: A Radical Behavioral Shift
As technology and online networks continue to reach new heights, many diabetics along with their support systems have moved to social media in order to express and seek support from individuals experiencing the same struggles as them.
Software development is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. While innovations are taking place in significantly more critical aspects, information technology improvements, are allowing professionals to focus more on those vital components of the practice.
More and more people want to be healthy and believe that technology will help them. This is what the research of the last few years is about. The research results showed that 56% of consumers believe that fitness apps will allow them to live ten years longer. Many respondents believe that mobile health will solve the problem of overweight. Another group of respondents is ready to buy a device to enhance health indicators throughout regular monitoring. As a result, a large number of mobile users believe that mHealth applications improve their lives.
It’s no surprise that the healthcare industry has to go through a major transformation that is now including the adoption of telehealth, e-prescriptions and video consultations. This has been talked about for years, but the bureaucracy of the existing healthcare system has hindered digital progress. Interestingly many healthcare organizations are not centralized nor managed in a technologically efficient manner. However, the COVID environment has accelerated healthcare’s much-needed digital transformation in different areas. To learn more, we conducted an interview with Stephen Rosing, VP of Sales, ACCELQ®.
