Due to major technological advances that are being made in the scientific world the whole healthcare landscape is being transformed.
This exciting future for healthcare is made possible due to major breakthroughs in areas such as : Genomics, Predictive medicine , Internet of things (IoT) and Telemedicine.
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is the chemical compound that contains the instructions needed to develop and direct the activities of nearly all living organisms. And genomics is a discipline in genetics that analyzes and sequences this DNA and thus making it possible to predict diseases. Predictive medicine is a rather new health care field that involves in predicting disease probability and also helps in establishing preventive measures that either helps in preventing the disease altogether or limiting its impact upon the patient. Wearable technologies like watches and wrist bands have made it easy for healthcare professionals to collect and monitor data without having to meet in person. The ”Internet of Things” is based on cloud computing and networks of data gathering sensors. It connects devices and thus supports predictive medicine. Telemedicine literally means “healing at a distance”. It is the use of telecommunication and information technologies in order to provide clinical health care at a distance. It includes a variety of applications and services.
Innovative technologies such as these that connect doctors with diagnostic tools are sure to take advantage of this major data revolution. And hence the ultimate goal of longer and better quality lives seems very near.
