The healthcare community has recently seen many advancements in healthcare delivery approaches and technology, including mHealth as an evolving field of healthcare apps to increase access to health services.Thus, in this article, we describe the most critical issues associated with mHealth and how to overcome them with healthcare blockchain development solutions.Indeed, to date, no standardized definition has been developed for mHealth.For the survey, mHealth or mobile health was identified by the Global Observatory for eHealth (GOP) as a practice of medical and public health assisted by mobile devices, such as mobile phones, patient tracking devices, personal digital assistants (PDAs), and other wireless devices.MHealth includes the use and capitalization of the central voice and short messaging service (SMS) utility of a cell phone, as well as more complicated features and applications, including general packet radio service (GPRS), mobile telecommunications third and fourth generation (3G and 4G systems), a global positioning system (GPS), and Bluetooth technology.In implementing mHealth, we identified five key areas of technological challenges: usability, system integration, data protection, and reliability.We have explained some of the essential principles associated with these difficulties.Blockchain in eHealthBlockchain technology has the potential to change health care, place the patient at the heart of the healthcare ecosystem, and improve health data protection, privacy, and interoperability.By making electronic medical records more accurate, disintermediated, and safe, this technology may provide a fresh model for health information exchanges (HIE).
Every year, the innovations unlocked by technology seem to appear faster and faster.But the Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated technology in a way we have never seen before.Different from the dot-com boom, Covid-19 has forced businesses to adjust not by choice, but by necessity.And if you’re an enterprise organization with thousands or even tens of thousands of employees and you had been thinking about investing more in your own internal technologies, Covid-19 has most likely made that decision for you.Major disruptions — whether it be a pandemic, an unstable economy or the shifting of a major industry — always reveal opportunities for technology to advance society forward.For example, in this year alone, videoconferencing went from being a slightly stigmatized form of work communication to our everyday standard.As the year comes to an end, it’s important to look to the future for signals of where technology will move the world next.Here are five tech trends to keep an eye on in 2021.EsportsAccording to Deloitte’s 2020 digital media trends survey, “During the crisis, a third of consumers have, for the first time, subscribed to a video gaming service, used a cloud gaming service, or watched esports or a virtual sporting event.” Furthermore, in previous years, Deloitte had found that “a quarter of consumers rank playing video games as one of their three favorite entertainment activities.” And for millennials and Gen Z consumers, playing video games is in their top three favorite activities.For an industry that has only started to mature over the past 10 years, Covid-19 was just fuel to the fire of a rapidly growing market that is on pace to surpass $1.5 billion by 2023.And as trends like streaming, virtual and augmented reality, and in-game entertainment (like the Travis Scott performance within Fortnite) all continue increases, we have only just scratched the surface of the role esports and gaming can play in the future of our society.Wearable TechnologyWearables have been on the rise for the past five years or so.But the whole narrative changed in March when, suddenly, people could no longer go to the gym.
It developed initially to hold consumer usability in mind.These apps equipped with the newest technologies, are now in constant updates and growth to deliver more modern industry developments.Apps may be extremely dynamic, exploiting the mobile devices’ capacity, accessibility, and portability with an ever-increasing variety of uses.The regular “not-so-tech-savvy” consumers weren’t enthusiastic about investing in these gadgets until they interacted with another significant industry phenomenon called mHealth phones.Online follow up with patientsThe automated patient tracking systems hold a medical record and transmit the details via an online channel to the healthcare professional.Among that, it often records the reading of glucose, blood pressure tests, and medical photos.2.

Voice is making waves across industries, but the transformative power of the technology is now at a tipping point in healthcare. The opportunity for voice in healthcare is pegged to mount as the global health virtual assistant market is expected to reach $3.5 billion in 2025.
US healthcare providers' interest in voice tech is being catalyzed by recent technological breakthroughs growing the tech's potential to transform legacy operations.
Voice tech boasts five distinct advantages that heighten its disruption potential in healthcare and the tech is being optimized for the healthcare sphere, which is increasing the visibility of voice in health and opening the door for voice assistants to perform more sensitive and complex healthcare actions. There are also several pain points within healthcare that up the pressure on providers to tap into the voice opportunity.
In this report, Business Insider Intelligence outlines the voice opportunity in healthcare and explores the drivers propelling voice adoption in the healthcare realm. We then examine three of the highest-value voice use cases in healthcare — clinical documentation, remote care, and clinical support — and provide examples of early moving health systems and health tech companies implementing voice in each application.
Here are some of the key takeaways from the report:
Health systems that deploy voice tech to facilitate clinical documentation can reduce physicians' administrative burden, increase patient volume and billable revenue, and eliminate transcription costs.
By leveraging voice to increase touchpoints with patients outside the clinic, healthcare organizations can open the opportunity to shrink costs associated with poor medication adherence and slash value-based care (VBC) penalties stemming from preventable readmissions.
Healthcare providers can reform diagnostics and better position themselves to deliver preventative medicine by deploying voice technology that can pinpoint diseases based on patients' speech characteristics.

How EHR can impact physicians’s productivity?
Productivity can be described as a condition, capacity or state of being ready to create, achieve, increase or gather forth goods and services.
In a clinic, productivity means several patients seen during a defined period.
Providing quality patient care is a challenging and cumbersome work without an EHR system.
If an unforeseen error appears in a patient's report, it will create an awful impression of your health center.
!.....a cloud-based EHR like Webmedy provides you the ability to maintain patient's records effectively.
However, the advancement of digital systems is making a major impact on how we view our health, how our medical records are managed, and how we receive education in health matters.Wearable devices are connecting us to our health in personal ways, telemedicine is bringing healthcare to us, and more female leaders in the industry are educating the sector on female-specific issues.While telemedicine may have started out as being a convenient method for those who have poor access, it is now becoming the preferred model by both consumers and providers.FemTech Will Continue to Rise & Enhance How Women Are Treated: Digital health solutions have historically been dominated by male-centred venture capitalist firms; which struggled to find digital health solutions that worked for women.Now, with the rise of more females within venture capitalist firms, we are seeing more digital health products come to life that revolves around women-specific health issues and reproductive healthcare.Personalization Will Revitalize Wearable Health Technology: Mobile health applications have a powerful impact on how consumers interact with and engage in their own health.Take Fitbit for instance, it was all the craze a few years ago with hundreds of thousands of people purchasing these fitness trackers.They lack the personalization that mobile health applications need to retain and attract new users.
Cortana, Microsoft’s voice assistant, has had a bit of an upgrade in the compassion department after someone found out how unhelpful it was when it came to medical emergencies.Maneesh Juneja, who is a ‘Digital Health Futurist’ (we’re not sure what that means, either) found that when he told Cortana “I'm bleeding,” rather than springing into action to provide helpful information, the voice assistant instead simply replied “Interesting”.You can watch the whole interaction below in his tweet:I told Cortana, Microsoft’s digital assistant, “I’m bleeding” - the response was weird DigitalHealth AI pic.twitter.com/mTNrDGpDZ2April 10, 2018The tweet was clearly seen by Microsoft, which worked quickly to improve Cortana’s response.Now, the voice assistant gives you helpful information, as well as urging you to seek medical help and providing a link to NHS advice (if you’re in the UK, at least).
