4 challenges for future health tech to solve 

Technology has the potential to solve a plethora of challenges in healthcare. Here are four key issues technology could help address, according to a Forbes report published Jan. 11.

1. Data sharing

When patient data is not shared between health systems efficiently, it can cause delays and  avoidable challenges and has the potential to affect patient health outcomes. 

2. Lack of transparency 

Patients can have a hard time understanding why a medical service is being done, what it entails and how much it will cost. 

3. Prediction for preventive care

Artificial intelligence tools are increasingly being used to predict patient outcomes and prepare for health events such as cardiac arrest. These tools can help improve preventive treatments and avoid hospital admission. 

4. Initial rollout challenges

When health systems set up new technological services, there can be an initial error rate that can dissuade systems from using them. To alleviate this issue, systems should collaborate and share best practices.
