Digital medicine

Instead of going to the hospital for a regular check-up, it is now possible for your doctor to remotely check your condition digitally. I understand there are now medical diagnostic apps on smart phones that can give your doctor your vital health information.

According to the Bloomberg article, there is an American health provider that brings “virtual care” directly to a patient’s bedside at home. They use remote technology to carry out tests, monitor the patient and make sure any worrying signs were responded to before an emergency happens.

This is how health care delivery is being transformed by modern digital technology.
