5 Ways Technology Has Revolutionized Healthcare

February 6, 2023 No Comments

Featured article by Russell Emmenthal

Technology has modified and improved almost every area of modern life, and healthcare has been radically affected by these changes. From new diagnostic techniques to more excellent communication, among numerous others, technology has made performing and receiving medical treatment far more sophisticated than before. Indeed, many of the common treatments we now take for granted once didn’t exist at all – and it’s all thanks to technology. 

To illustrate this further, below we’ve listed five distinct ways that technology has completely revolutionized the world of healthcare. Let’s jump in!

1. The Invention of the X-Ray

One hundred and twenty-eight years ago, a man named Wilhelm Rontgen made an incredible discovery: a brand new kind of ray. This came to be known as the X-ray and it completely changed the capabilities of medicine, treatment, and overall healthcare. Numerous providers of X-ray equipment – including – allow those in the healthcare space to continue to give excellent service. 

2. Improved Access to Medical Data

Once upon a time, medical professionals needed to rely on filing cabinets and paper documents to keep track of patient notes. Sounds tedious! Thanks to the advent of technology, healthcare providers now have access to online databasesthat can store increased information in a more retrievable format. This also makes sharing data between professionals far easier too, all while increasing security. 

3. Increased Communication

In addition to making patient notes and medical history easier to access between professionals, communication has also significantly improved. In the past, a phone was all hospital staff had to call upon each other. (We won’t even get into beepers!) Thankfully, innovations have been made and doctors now keep in touch in more reliable ways during an emergency. They rely on smartphones, email, and newer, more sophisticated tools for faster response times and more effective treatment. 

4. Allows for Online Education and Training

Medical professionals worldwide can now share advice via the internet, too, building a virtual network of healthcare worldwide. This often manifests in learning material, not only for medical students or other new healthcare professionals but also for experienced professionals. There’s always something new to learn in the world of healthcare, and online learning materials are an increasingly popular way to access these new tools. 

5. Provides More Accurate Diagnosis and Treatment

Finally – and arguably one of the most important developments! – is the improved accuracy of modern medicine. MRI and CT scans have wholly altered how medical professionals approach the diagnosis and treatment of multiple conditions, including cancer. These scans allow doctors to view the human body and brain in ways they never could before, opening the door to significant discoveries.  

Tech Continues to Evolve!

Technology has continued to evolve tremendously over the past two decades and shows no signs of slowing down. However, healthcare isn’t the only area to see significant change. New technological advancements have improved almost every other sector, and we can’t wait to see where it takes us next. We could be one decade away from the next big thing! Are you ready?
