Digital in Health Excerpt :

Indicating ways to improve patient-outcome was the main driver writing this book. Two years of research, structuring, collecting, and writing around the central subject of our days: digital. Similar to other spheres of our lives, digital has the power to change many aspects of healthcare and improve patient's lives. Not only tells the book about the obvious, but also points to many use-cases and innovative examples of digital in health. By definition, digital interconnects and integrates people and things. Maybe some of the players in healthcare find the idea of working across sectors harmful to their own business model? Digital in health in any case means leaving traditional comfort zones. Besides telling about the digital past and present, the book Digital in Health defines, conveys ideas, triggers concepts, and indicates digital business models and cases already existing. In contrast to what we encounter every day, digital concepts in healthcare are lagging far behind. The rest of the world has already advanced a lot further. After technology is available, the most important prerequisite for the development of digital in health evidently is the mindset of protagonists. Digital today is far more than a buzzword, after every one of us is regularly confronted with it. Today many are already depending on digital, reaching into every corner of our life. None of our today's lives could continue to function as it is, without leveraging and using all these digital tools and applications. Digital in Health wants to help pave the way for digital ideas, supporting the constant ambition to improve patient-outcome. Joining forces for the common goal of better care, the coauthors added most relevant and important views. Each from his own professional background. Many thanks to Salil Kallianpur, Gerd Luippold, Christian Milaster, and Anup Soans who contributed so greatly to the book, while living in India, Germany, and the United States of America.

Health 4.0 is a term that has derived from the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0), as it pertains to the healthcare industry. This book offers a novel, concise, but at the same time, broad picture of the challenges that the technological revolution has created for the healthcare system. It offers a comprehensive view of health sector actors’ interaction with the emerging new technology, which is disrupting the status quo in health service delivery. It explains how these technological developments impact both society and healthcare governance. Further, the book addresses issues related to key healthcare system stakeholders: the state, patients, medical professionals, and non-governmental organizations.

Developing and Utilizing Digital Technology in Healthcare for Assessment and Monitoring Excerpt :

This book discusses the current trends in nursing and healthcare in relation to the integration of information technological interventions across the care continuum. The use of such interventions in healthcare has increased rapidly in recent years, partly due to the rise in technological gadgets/applications used in daily routines (e.g. actigraphy bracelets, smartphones) and their unique properties that can be utilized in assessing, monitoring and managing a patient’s condition remotely. This book highlights the areas and the ways in which these interventions can facilitate patient assessment and monitoring and complement conventional treatments in the management of disease-induced or treatment-induced side effects. Furthermore, the book describes the development of such interventions and examines how they are designed to promote adherence and acceptance by the user. To this end, the book also discusses the need for personalizing the technological experience according to the user’s preferences and needs. Drawing on the latest studies in these areas, it not only provides suggestions for undertaking research in this context, but also offers insights into how these technologies impact patients’ clinical outcomes. Lastly, it addresses the challenges of utilizing such technologies and future directions. Providing multiple perspectives on the topic, the book appeals to a wide range of readers, including nurses, clinicians, researchers, technology experts and students, making them familiar with a broad selection of technological interventions and their application in clinical practice. Moreover, it highlights the factors that need to be considered in the development (and testing) of future interventions, in particular in nursing, and provides inspiration for future studies.

Digital Healing Excerpt :

Medical practice and research are inconceivable today without electronic computing and communication tools. Digital machines do many tasks orders-of-magnitude better, faster and more accurately than humans. Still, there are functions critical to the healthcare endeavor that people do much better than machines, things like: understanding and using natural language; perceiving what is unexpressed; taking into account values, culture, ethics, and human relationships; touching and healing. For the foreseeable future, the "smartest" computers will be no match for human beings when it comes to performing these most anthropic functions. American healthcare is at a critical juncture. Providers and patients are increasingly frustrated by degradation of the human relationships that lie at the core of the medical practice. Technologies, such as the computerized medical record, get much of the blame for intrusion into the patient-provider relationship. However, it is not technology itself that is to blame. The fault lies with how systems are conceived, designed, and deployed. This book analyzes how to organize the work of healthcare in a way that uses machines to do what they do best, thereby freeing humans to do what we do best. Smart use of electronic technology is crucial to the success of any bid to fulfill the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s triple aim to make healthcare more effective, efficient, and humane.

The Digital Reconstruction of Healthcare Excerpt :

The complex challenges facing healthcare require innovative solutions that can make patient care more effective, easily available, and affordable. One such solution is the digital reconstruction of medicine that transitions much of patient care from hospitals, clinics, and offices to a variety of virtual settings. This reconstruction involves telemedicine, hospital-at-home services, mobile apps, remote sensing devices, clinical data analytics, and other cutting-edge technologies. The Digital Reconstruction of Healthcare: Transitioning from Brick and Mortar to Virtual Care takes a deep dive into these tools and how they can transform medicine to meet the unique needs of patients across the globe. This book enables readers to peer into the very near future and prepare them for the opportunities afforded by the digital shift in healthcare. It is also a wake-up call to readers who are less than enthusiastic about these digital tools and helps them to realize the cost of ignoring these tools. It is written for a wide range of medical professionals including: Physicians, nurses, and entrepreneurs who want to understand how to use or develop digital products and services IT managers who need to fold these tools into existing computer networks at hospitals, clinics, and medical offices Healthcare executives who decide how to invest in these platforms and products Insurers who need to stay current on the latest trends and the evidence to support their cost effectiveness Filled with insights from international experts, this book also features Dr. John Halamka’s lessons learned from years of international consulting with government officials on digital health. It also taps into senior research analyst Paul Cerrato’s expertise in AI, data analytics, and machine learning. Combining these lessons learned with an in-depth analysis of clinical informatics research, this book aims to separate hyped AI "solutions" from evidence-based digital tools. Together, these two pillars sup
