Telehealth businesses are gaining momentum in the USA and have already triggered changes in traditional healthcare systems. This has become possible as the industry has started using more technological advancements not only for research and treatment but also for doctor-patient interactions.

Cybersecurity continues to be one of the top issues in almost every aspect of business where one deals with digital information. In 2017, the world economy faced a multitude of data breaches leading to substantial financial losses and loss of goodwill. Unfortunately, the healthcare industry was among the major targets for cyber fraud. Data breaches set new records every year, so it is possible we’ll see a new one in 2018.

 

The automation of the healthcare sphere is one of the most urgent and, perhaps, the most difficult task in the world. A huge amount of money is spent every year to try and solve it, but many problems and questions remain. The main issue includes proper interaction between various systems, especially the exchange of data at the municipal, regional, and federal levels.

 

Advances in technology have traditionally triggered changes in business. Interactive tools provided by state-of-the-art computer software mean positive changes in healthcare domain and particularly in the nursing profession.

Historically America’s healthcare system used care delivery models focused on rewards or reimbursements in a fee-for-service (FFS) environment.

In other words fee-for-service payment models promote the extensive use of various tests and procedures to bill the payers for.

 

With 3G and 4G networks, smartphones, tablets, other mobile platforms, and various connected devices being such an integral part of modern life, it’s no wonder that mobile health (or mHealth) has become so popular around the world. People are more interested in their well-being, health, and personal safety and have become more proactive when it comes to monitoring their vitals and participating in the treatment process.
