Each year, new trends emerge that revolutionize the healthcare sector. There has been a significant increase in the implementation of electronic health records (EHR), with plans for establishing a nationalized electronic patient database. The coding system is undergoing a transition to ICD-10, with extensive structural changes compared to ICD-9. Healthcare providers have embraced telehealth services as a standard of care, and patient health data is routinely shared between facilities. Healthcare consulting companies are upping their game around cloud-based EHR and telehealth services to better assist clients in the medical space.
Big data and analytics enhance patient health predictions while also helping medical facilities maintain regulatory compliance. Another duo, AI and IoT, is slowly making its way into the healthcare industry. These technologies aim to automate everyday tasks and increase the efficiency of healthcare institutions. In this ecosystem, consulting providers are playing a huge role by helping healthcare facilities leverage the latest technologies and improve patient care.
