Emerging technologies in healthcare

by Suzanne Moss Richins | 17 June 2015
Synopsis
Recent changes in healthcare delivery as mandated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act are forcing providers to focus on technology as a way to improve the health of the population, while engaging patients and encouraging them to take accountability for maintaining their own health. One way of doing this is through the use of mobile health (mhealth) technologies that allow physicians to monitor patients in real time and access important medical records from anywhere. Connecting millions of patients with caregivers like never before, mhealth technology is changing healthcare delivery for good. Emerging Technologies in Healthcare provides detailed descriptions of the latest mhealth technologies. It outlines the role of mhealth for self-care and remote care and describes the differences between telemedicine, telehealth, and telecare. The book justifies the use of mhealth technology for meeting regulatory standards of care and explains how analytics and social media are being used to improve the delivery of healthcare. It addresses healthcare reform and risk management in healthcare and concludes by discussing future directions for healthcare technologies. The book is written by a leader in the application of analytics in the healthcare industry. Her extensive background in nursing and hospital administration provides her with the opportunity to share unique insights on how to apply technology and innovation to improve the management of today's healthcare systems.
