5.How is technology helping you or how technology has impacted the Indian healthcare?
Technology is helping the Indian Healthcare sector in a big noticeable way, by bridging the gap between the healthcare providers and patients. Telemedicine, TelePathology, TeleRadiology and Internet of Medical Tings (IoMT) are the prime movers.
Here are a few illustrations of how HospitalSoftwareShop.com has used IoMT in penetrating the roots of Indian Healthcare:
Instance I: (Tier II Indian City): An elderly person in the family had fluctuating glucose levels, a round strip (like Band-Aid) was stuck to his arm and we could see the graph on our smartphone. Based on the graph, the Diabetologist adjusted his insulin dosage.
Instance II (Tier I Indian City): A fitness freak friend uses a smartphone app to measures his calorie intakes every day when he has taken excess calories during a meal, the app warns (alerts) him to reduce intake of calories at the next meal.
Instance III (Rural India): In the interiors of South India, patients are connected to Super-specialists of a Tertiary Hospital, their vitals being captured and transmitted in real time through telemedicine.
Instance IV (Electronic Prescription Pads): Doctors have been using electronic prescription pads for the last 7-8 years. An electronic prescription pad is an A4 sized letter pad, on which the Doctor writes the prescription / advice. The image is stored in the internal memory of the pad and synced with the patient database.
