Digitized healthcare involves using digital technology, such as computers and smart devices, to provide patients with medical advice, assessments, and treatment.
Thanks to subsets of telemedicine such as mHealth, which refers to using mobile devices to access practitioners, more people are getting mental health treatment. This approach allows people to access services without having to see someone in person. More importantly, it enables people to get healthcare when they need it, in an on-demand fashion. Not having to make an appointment or transport themselves to the doctor can be a lifesaver for individuals experiencing a mental health crisis.
Digitized healthcare is also a major improvement when it comes to keeping medical records, and syncing information across various health networks. With the ability to upload test results, reports, and more to a digital platform, different medical professionals can access a patient’s entire record. This is going to reduced human error and make sure that a patient's records are more readily available whenever they are needed.
