Technology has revolutionized our behavior. It’s changed the way we stay in contact with friends, do our shopping, read the news, and access our bank accounts. Whatever we’re doing, it’s likely that it’s facilitated by technology in some way.
The best technology makes life easier through simplicity, speed and ease of use. The same should be true in healthcare. Increasingly, patients are calling for more convenient ways of accessing health services.
The healthcare system is adapting to the modern world, albeit slowly. The sector typically has lagged behind when it comes to adopting tech.
For example, in the United Kingdom, there is a growing number of services for people who would like to have a consultation with a general practitioner (GP) via video call, but the National Health Service (NHS) is only beginning to embrace these options.
