Digitalization of patient´s personal data and artificial intelligence at the health service.
The digitalization of the patient's personal data makes possible to diagnose diseases earlier and treat them more accurately. And also, what´s very important, do it faster and cheaper. Artificial intelligence (AI) and patient databases are making diagnostic quality better. This enables data mining and data exploitation with algorithms that allow you to continually learn and improve (machine learning). Artificial intelligence will automate routine tasks, allowing doctors to understand diagnosis faster. This will give them more time for their patients and be more responsive to their needs. The goal of digitalization is to prepare the health care system for the future, demographic developments, make it easier for doctors to work, make more accurate diagnoses, save time and money, counteract an increase in the shortage of specialists and last but not least, improve patients satisfaction with progress, treatment, improve their life quality. Software is the heart of modern medical devices. Such devices as surgical robots, X-ray or laboratory devices for in-vitro diagnostics. IT in the healthcare sector is needed to make the necessary adjustments as soon as possible. They are also made according to process and guidelines while maintaining the highest quality standards. OEMs use external software vendors which are their reliable partners. With the help of digitization, it is necessary to optimize the processes of admission and care of patients, doctors should receive support with imaging diagnostics, develop customized high-performance implants and make individual treatment of patients. The most important parameters are: patient safety, data protection and usability.
Mobile health and telemedicine.
Early made diagnosis is the key to an effective therapeutic intervention. This area of medicine has been significantly improved in technical and qualitative way over the last few years. It all became possible cause of innovations in the field of molecular diagnostics and personalization of medicine. The patient can be provided with all-day medical supervision and care through the continuous transmission of individual data. We can say that he can get all this in his own living room.
One of the future scenarios for the development of medicine will get to this point, when the patient does not need to go to the doctor if he has any symptoms of the disease or for a preventive examination. With the help of digitized personal data, they will be contacted prophylactically as soon as any signs of an emerging disease appears.
Since the discovery of biomarkers, Austria has always been among the most advanced medical developments in the production of diagnostic equipment, for in-vitro diagnostics and the actual analysis of samples.
