In all sorts of IT offices worldwide, workplace modernization has emerged as a key area of focus. This is largely happening because employees demand the latest devices and apps for handling their job responsibilities, and they need this technology if they’re going to stay engaged and productive.
In industries like retail and hospitality, this is a key goal because productive employees lead to happier customers, meaning increased profits. In healthcare, though, the demand for digital transformation is on another level altogether. Quite literally, it can save lives.
To deliver high-quality care, providers must have instant access to patient data. This is becoming harder and harder over time, though, as the amount of healthcare data in the world is growing rapidly. Per research from Dell Technologies, the amount of healthcare and life sciences data increased by 878% between 2016 and 2018. The number of connected devices per hospital bed in the United States is now between 10 and 15, and every one of them is generating data constantly. The challenge, then, is to corral all that data in a way that’s manageable and allows healthcare professionals to access it in real time.
So what’s the solution? Consider Connected Health, from Dell Technologies. Connected Health is more than just a collection of medical devices — it’s a network of intelligent communication and actionable information sharing, all geared toward improving patient outcomes. The idea is to have technology, healthcare, research, and public policy all working together toward one common goal.
There’s a clear need for this technology right now. The demographics of the world’s population are changing quickly — global life expectancy increased by 5.5 years between 2000 and 2016, and it now stands at 72. By 2050, 1 in 6 people in the world will be over 65, and many of them will have chronic conditions that demand treatment. This will be taxing for the world’s medical professionals — many of whom are already overtaxed. Currently, 44% of physicians report that burnout is a major issue in their careers.
