Investigating Computer Applications/Technology Innovations over the Last
Decade in the Healthcare Field
A book by Tarek Sobh discusses the progress in information expertise that have been repeatedly made to order in the health care sector for improved routine. The book highlights the fast growth in positioning technologies that lead to the expansion of mobile services in health care. Proposing a location based mobile healthcare system planning that is incorporated with the most modern technology in wireless communication, the paper discusses the advancements that have been achieved to ensure wireless communication, remote monitoring technology, and sensors technology in the field of healthcare. Tarek Sobh elaborates on the significance of moving health care services from manual use of the desktop to mobile expertise in health care.
The book highlights the impact of remote monitoring tools in improving health care services. The report is based on research that was carried out at the end of 2012, which indicates that up to 2.8 million patients across the globe were able to use a home monitoring system. It has been reported that monitoring the health of patients from home can reduce costs and unnecessary visits to a physician. Tarek Sobh suggests an improvement to the monitoring technology with an aim of helping both the physician and the patient to connect easily.
The sensors and wearable technology is also indicated in the paper to have an impact on healthcare. The wearable medical device market is said to grow at a fast rate as indicated by the Transparency Market Research report. The device is significant in collecting data, which is one of the aims and purposes of healthcare. While wireless communication is not new technology, the advancement in communication has been introduced in healthcare to replace devices such as beepers and overhead pagers. Efficiency in internal communications in hospitals has been achieved because of the existence of wireless communication technology.
Riskin, D. J., Longaker, M. T., Gertner, M., & Krummel, T. M. (2006). Innovation in surgery: a historical perspective. Annals of surgery, 244(5), 686.
A journal article written by Daniel J. Riskin, Michael T. Longaker, Michael Gertner, and Thomas M. Krummel describes the sector of surgical knowledge from a chronological perception. Innovations in surgery over the last decade are highlighted. The article also applies new data from research in technology modernization in the health care sector. The article on surgical innovation contains an evaluation of the scholarly writing in know-how innovation. It is a summary of various books and articles that were identified by the authors through various data collection methods. A variety of concepts in surgical advancement have been applied to innovation in surgery, with the historical perspective.
The journal article identifies the rich tradition that is associated with surgical innovation as a field of study. It is identified that surgical innovation is significant in improving surgical advancement. The authors also highlight the significant health policy implications that surgical innovation has. The research done by the authors highlight that the history of surgical innovation comprises largely of individuals and widely respected surgeon innovators who stick to the rules of their profession. Surgery is said to rely on a tradition of research and attracts only bright minds. Up to date, innovation in surgery is impressive but it is inconsistently supported.
From the various literature reviews combined by the authors in the article, it is concluded that a body of information on technology innovation has been made in the recent times but innovation has not been useful in surgery. Innovative surgical innovation facilities are identified to be striving to delineate surgical innovation and recognize significant aspects of surgical innovation endorsement. The surgical thoughts and principles that have been identified through explorations and publication can be applied to other professions although many aspects in the field require specialized thought.
Groves, P., Kayyali, B., Knott, D., & Kuiken, S. V. (2016). The’big data’revolution in healthcare: Accelerating value and innovation.
The journal article about revolution in the US health care system is written by Basel Kayyali, David Knott, and Steve Van Kuiken. The authors indicate in the article that big data could transform the health care system but there are changes that must be applied before the stakeholders can capture its full potential. The big data in the United States is reported to be among the recent innovations in the health care.
The innovation has vastly led to an increase in the supply of information in the health industry. A lot of research has been done by pharmaceutical companies as well as the US federal command and other stakeholders, improving the nation’s vast stores of knowledge on health care. The research done by the agencies make use of information medical trials and statistics on patients who are insured by public indemnity programs. The up to date advancements in technology have improved the process of collecting and analyzing data from various sources.
The big data revolution has contributed enormously in health care as information from each patient may come from different health centers, laboratories, and the offices of physicians. The journal article has reported cases of the health care sector lagging behind in sectors such as retail and banking even as the big data is used. The depreciation in terms of quality has been blamed on concerns about the confidentiality of patients. However, there is hope that the health care industry would soon catch up in the sectors that have lagged behind.
