The healthcare sector's neurology department is using innovative technologies like AI and robotics to offer greater value to the patients.
FREMONT, CA: Incredible technical innovation is revolutionizing human life quickly when it comes to healthcare. From the introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) to robotic nurse assistants, healthcare organizations are now more than ever searching for technological advancements to support their work in creating new treatments to provide greater value to patients eventually.
Innovations in health technology like wearable devices that track the vital signs of a patient and control symptoms can significantly accelerate clinical progress and advance how healthcare providers can prevent, diagnose, monitor, and perhaps even cure serious diseases quickly. People can often see a combination of prescription medications and advanced technologies, merging the two to help patients control their conditions better. In the future delivery of healthcare, technology is continuously shown as a central component.
People with neurological disorders like epilepsy and Parkinson's each have an individual journey of their own. What works for one person does not always work for others. Beyond the apparent signs, multiple influences come into play in these forms of neurological disorders. The mood of a patient, their sleep habits, and even their diet can affect their symptoms and general health and contribute positively to their quality of life.
In the field of neurology, a range of 'intelligent' innovations has already been introduced to the market, with groundbreaking systems being built to track patient symptoms in real-time. Collaborative research projects such as RADAR-CNS, for instance, seek to explore the ability of wearable devices for epilepsy prediction and treatment. Technology, such as GNLT's data visualization input platform for Parkinson's, are examples of how technology is starting to modernize patients' care everyday all-around the world. Patients can be given with certainty and peace of mind that their condition is being controlled remotely, by their doctor, through the integration of science and technology.
But wearables are not the first form of medical tracking technology on the market that is steaming ahead. For example, blood-based biomarkers that predict epileptic seizures have an excessively high degree of accuracy in providing actual seizure event confirmation for patients. The monitoring technique decreases the risk of seizure activity and shortens the initial time for the disorder to be detected more significantly. Other types of digital biomarkers are being created to transform patient lives, such as the Sonde Health voice-based technology platform, using smartphones and wearables to track a patient's reaction to treatments in their own home.
