The Touch that Patient Care Needs

We are all experiencing rapid changes within the Healthcare Industry which is creating challenges and roadblocks for healthcare professionals everywhere. There are loads of technology updates that need to take place in order to move us on up, digitally. The Digital Transformation is taking place right now within the Healthcare Industry. What was projected to take place in 5 years, has now been thrusted our way in a matter of six months.

From self-service touch screens to telehealth communication and even perfected workflow management, patient care is looking up with more efficient and streamlined operations, all through the power of touch. Patients are realizing a heightened sense of safety among these self-service kiosks, due to the fact that there is very low person-to-person interaction with these devices, which can help stop the spread of the virus. On the other end of the line, however, nurses and medical staff are able to communicate with the patient to help them receive the best care that they can provide.

Touch-Screen Self-Service Kiosks allow medical staff to better analyze how patient admissions, discharges & transfers, and future business requirements can be rolled out going forward. This system also allows pharmacists to fill an double-check prescriptions safely, improving pharmaceutical operations. Not to mention that their capability to be wiped down and sanitized before and after usage, this really comes in handy while we’re in the middle of the Global Pandemic.

As we inch closer and closer to world where Telehealth is the top choice for providing care, the digital transformation is unfolding more and more. Patient care has improved regardless of location and time, exceeding all expectations. Telehealth is improving the quality, speed and accessibility of Healthcare, which increases the efficiency and knowledge exchange and enhances the management of Healthcare, as a whole.
