Health care digitization could become the new norm


According to Forbes, digitization of health care may soon make medical access easier.

The digitization of health care could lead to reduced costs, better outcomes and trajectories for patients, increased communication between patients and doctors, and the “introduction of new contributors to the healthcare ecosystem.”

Leslie Saxon of USC Center for Body Computing is a proponent of the process. She claims that computerized health care can collect data based on nutrition, exercise, and other measures of health. This data can then be converted via smartphones and other forms of technology to information a doctor can assist with.

Not only this, but digitized health care is poised to diagnose diseases better as a result of the continuous data input. However, it will likely not be easy to implement such a complex strategy in the long-term.
