How Technology is Changing the World of Healthcare Management

Discover how new technologies arehaving a positive impact on healthcare management, much to the benefit of both patients and professionals.

Automated Patient Booking Management

This is one of the more exciting benefits for us here at Spurwing. We have seen various ways that experienced software developers have been able to put our scheduling API to work. One of the most beneficial to patients and healthcare providers is automated patient booking management.

Staff Meeting Scheduling

The world of healthcare is an incredibly busy place. Many software developers have use the Spurwing Scheduling API to develop staff meeting scheduling. By keeping tabs on the availability of all required staff, developers have been able to produce software that schedules meetings to suit the availability of their staff. This means that healthcare centers have been easily able to slot meetings into the working day while producing the minimum amount of disruption for their patients.

Syncing of Patient Notes

In the past, it would have been difficult for a patient to switch doctors. Many records were kept in such a way that it would have been difficult to share them between medical establishments. This means that, in some cases, it would be weeks before the new doctor was able to look at the patient’s full medical history. This has now changed.

Virtual Appointments

Recent world events have changed how medical centers work. Many are avoiding seeing patients directly unless there is a pressing need to do so. As a result, many places have started to introduce virtual appointments. Through the power of the internet and video chat, doctors have been able to interact directly with their patients without the patient needing to leave the comfort of their own home.

Repeat Prescriptions

In the past, writing repeat prescriptions would have taken a healthy chunk of time for any doctor. Nowadays, technology has allowed much of the process to be automated.

ChatBots

Chatbots can help to free up time for staff members and often make it a little bit easier for patients to discuss their symptoms.

Translation

While this technology is still in its infancy because translation systems are still not perfect, there are a lot of ways that this technology can go.

Final Word

Technology has taken over the world of healthcare, and this is a good thing. Efficient systems mean that professionals have more time to treat their patients. Efficiency means that patients get the care that they need when they need it. The best part is that many of the greatest technologies in healthcare management have only been introduced in the last few years. This means that we still have a lot of rapid technological advancement to look forward to. We are excited to see where the industry is heading.
