I think in the future, the machine will take over more technologies. If you go to the hospital of the future you will be greeted by robots , guided by them to reception cubical where you answer many questions and the machines talk to you and take your history and data. Then You will be ask by the machine to go to
Your ultrasound room number 1, 2 etc. you will lay on bed as you told after you changed your clothes and then the robots ultrasound arms start doing the ultrasound exams , taken the images, and send the images to the ultrasound practitioners who are at home office or central base to write the report , there will be no need for radiologists in 80% of the time. The radiologists will turn to scientists and quality control reporter and some will keep their old fashion reading in the 3rd world countries like the middleast , Africa etc. al boldan al nayema .
No more ultrasound technologists or sonographers, All sonographers of the future must have MSc degree in general ultrasound as practitioners or in a specific area. Most ultrasound business will be run by robots and 90% of it will be run in telemedicine
and remote reporting. How about EV scan , well it will be the same .The robots will ask the lady to insert the probe and the machine gently do the exam .
Everything will be measured and calculated. No more wires and cables. No more patients asking for male tech to do the testes or female tech to do the endovaginal scan ( EV ) SCAN.. Same Will be in the Laboratory exam from reception to taken the blood sample to admitting most will be done with robots. The few technologists, guards, cleaners and disinfected techs will be around along with some maintenance techs.
Many patients mentioned the need for human interaction and not machines. When my doctor walks into the exam room, I want him / her to pay attention to me, not the computer. Not only is that what all patients want, but it’s what doctors want, too. Yet doctors today are under pressure to feed the digital beasts and it will be more in the future and we will have no choice but to accept the new way of life. The few who will reject the change will stay practice the old style and charge more for service .
In the future they will be machine controlled by specific ethic agency and approval to assist patient to die safely and without pain, The family will bring the patient with the permits and all the cards that the machine ask for and take all the data and the information from the family , then the machine proceed with the merciful euthanasia of the patient and move the patient to other chamber to cremate and collect the ashes and the family will receive the loved one in a jar from the other end of the hall with his picture and name on it and to the prayer chamber of the hospital where they hold the ceremony in the same place.
The medical record will be handled by smart computers and apps in cell phones. Machines will walk with a blind person and guide him to every step in the road to shops and back to his home with cars that run by them and take them home to the spot they want by voice activator that work with GPS to the designated area. Electronic chips with the person data in each person arm will help to identify the person life or dead. To collect info with pass words of course and start helping the person need or where about to go. The robots will be able to read the can food labels and read the labels and the food items . roads and side walk for the blinds and handicapped side roads will make the road more safe for them to commute.
Health care’s software problem will not be solved with a user interface overhaul – EMRs need to be smarter, not just prettier. Think networks, not software alone. We need to bring together the intelligence of doctors, nurses, patients, hospitals, laboratories, insurers and everyone else who contributes to the continuum of future care. Home care, portable care in cars and vans.
International drug and medications, reactions and side effects will be searching your past and present medication intake and give you details, new doses, warning and information of what you should do all will be done with computers, cell phones and hospital robots .
Emergency car and hospital emergency rooms will start with the advancement of the EMS ambulance cars that will be equipped with life supporting systems and the EMS ambulance of the future will fly and Hoovers away to the hospital without the need to navigate the street and go throw traffics.
Complexity is the enemy. Medicine is necessarily complex, but the administrative complexity surrounding it can be reduced. The future technology will make it easier and faster for the reimbursement process , to help providers get paid faster and it can apply the same discipline to making electronic health records more useful, and to prompt providers to gather the data they need to gather in the least intrusive way.
Delegation WILL happen from doctors to nurses and administrative staff, and even to patients. Instead of patients answering a whole series of routine questions with their knickers down in the exam room, The health robots will gathered all your data day before you see your doctor with all you concerns and questions, all your medication data and history and summarized it and give you and the doctors a solutions before you meet with the real doctors.
Each year, the U.S. spends nearly $3 trillion on health care – about $9,225 per person – which accounts for about one-fifth of the U.S. economy. Once one of the most stable sectors of the American economy, health care is in the throes of unprecedented change, driven by a potent mix of technological advances and mandates to contain costs and improve quality. This will be changed in the future so the vast majority of capital spending will go on innovations, improving quality of life and reducing human stress.
A new 3-D computer modeling system may help surgeons choose the best-sized donor heart for children who need a heart transplant, new research finds. These new 3d and 4 d systems will help the doctors of the future to select donor hearts.
To develop the system, researchers have to create a library of 3-D images using MRI and CT scans. The images will include scans of the hearts of healthy children weighing up to 99 pounds. The library was then used to predict the best donor body weight to ensure the proper heart size for recipients.”Three-D reconstruction has tremendous potential to improve donor size matching .
Currently, proper heart size is assessed by comparing the donor’s and recipient’s weight and then choosing an upper and lower limit based on the size of the recipient’s heart. However, this is an imprecise method and variations in donor heart size can have a major effect on how well the recipient does, the researchers said.
Robots will also take your dogs out for walk and bring them back to the building . Water system will be going throw filter system in each building and unites,
