Use of UI/ UX trends in the Healthcare Industry

With COVID-19 in the air, there has been a major transformation and evolution in the way a patient receives healthcare. Even though times are extremely challenging – there has been growth in the health care industry. 

Healthcare is becoming digital and there has been an opportunity for seamless interaction between patients and doctors. Modern digital innovations give unique online experiences to patients like real-time and remote patient monitoring, efficient risk predictions, improved diagnostics, timely alerts, e-prescriptions – all leading to a patient-focused approach to healthcare.

So, how UI/UX has brought innovation in healthcare in this digital age?

Safe access to healthcare at your doorstep

It’s not possible to go to your healthcare providers especially during these risky times. The good news is that healthcare is accessible to patients in their homes. To meet the demand and supply of healthcare devices many diagnostic and treatment devices (like dialysis) are being manufactured for at-home patient care.

Designers can design consumer-friendly devices that patients can operate themselves, without dealing with the technical complexities. 

Improved turnaround time for diagnostics data

The pandemic has made us aware that swift action is required in healthcare. So, one has to think of how to improve the turnaround time. 

To make this possible many clinics have been able to shorten the turnaround time in response to the current situation. By reducing this time, clinics can identify and test rapidly.

Build a great user experience through platforms

With the aid of emails, chats, video conferences, cell phones – there has been a way to hasten and increase the efficiency of outcomes between patients and physicians. Many platforms are used to increase patient – healthcare services.

Right from choosing and going to the doctor, to helping maintain documents on a single platform has made it easier for patients to access their medical history and provide patient care, seamlessly.

Unification of Medical data – Internet of Medical things

With everything becoming digital – the internet of things ends up referring to devices that are connected with the help of the internet. These include wearables, connected inhalers, smart beds, ECG, EKG monitors, and other facilities. 

With the aid of such tools, clinicians can monitor patients at home or on the go from almost any corner of the world!. As a result, these connected devices ensure timely medications, measure vitals, set reminders, and also follow up alerts.

Healthcare is advancing thanks to new technologies that help to have an online interaction between the healthcare and patient. You can now be safe and treated from the comfort of your home, or any other part of the world. Today, as we live in a digital era, healthcare has taken a new turn that helps healthcare accessible from any corner of the globe.
