Health Enhanced Through Machines
The human-technology relationship is still evolving in healthcare, but AI and machine learning is here to help doctors instead of replacing them. Thanks to faster data transfers and improved computational capabilities, we can answer questions that we couldn’t answer before. Whether it’s predicting health problems before they worsen or improve access to healthcare in underserved communities, these emerging technologies are making it easier.
Telehealth Technology Trends
As the past year of COVID has shifted many interactions, healthcare is moving towards more telehealth and virtual connections. It’s even changing the way the federal government reimburses and funds healthcare. That’s where 5G can come in with edge computing, low latency, and higher speeds for communication and computation needs for older patients or overwhelmed medical teams.
Ethical and Unbiased Care
Any new technology must be adopted with ethical intentions and created with as little bias as possible. Leonard and Lindsey dive into the racial and systemic biases that exist in healthcare and technology in the US today. Rupa also shares her thoughts on the ramifications of potential data breaches and understanding the risks that come with data security.
