Over the past two decades, the world has seen so much change, infact, according to unofficial reports, the world will see a technological change between 2020 and 2025 that is equivalent to the change the world experienced between 1900 and 2000. Some, if not many of us are having a hard time coping with the ever-changing world. Policymakers, decision-makers, professionals, and researchers alike are also trying to catch up with the swift changes happening around them. In some cases, decisions that affect other people take time to be implemented. This has adversely affected people who heavily rely on policymakers to implement changes one way or the other.
Change is overtaking the world, it’s a fact, with that view in mind, there is a need to foster new perspectives in health care. Regulations in the Health Care Industry have to be constantly reviewed. Organising and constantly reviewing methods, tactics, strategies and decisions must be done at regular intervals. Reforming the health care industry in line with the ever-changing needs, cultural norms and environment is imperative.
The ever-changing landscape in the UK healthcare system characterised by changes in technology and technologies that could improve patient care needs to be examined and solutions that will benefit patients and professionals implemented. Because technology adoption in healthcare is a bit slow, healthcare policymakers and decision-makers need to have an open mind about the following technologies and if possible seek the adoption.
- Multifaceted medical devices for patient monitoring
- Diagnostics devices
- Communication technology between patients and carers and other professionals
- Administration and transactions systems.
These will help in patient management, lessening the burdensome administrative work health care professionals have to sort out and deliver cut-edge service to the people who need Healthcare the most in the UK because of its efficiency, thereby driving new perspectives in health care. Technology has become the new norm in this new industrial revolution, and it shall intensify in the next four years, the only new perspective in this scenario is to adopt it swiftly or be overtaken by the technology wave.
