Every day, data are being generated in healthcare by hospitals. In today’s medicine, the majority of patient’s data are generated inside clinical facilities. Providers then utilize data in order to make conclusions and make decisions for patients.
In future medicine, this data cycle will be closed using automation and taking advantage of all the data that patients generate outside clinical facilities as well. Closing the data loop through automation will help bring faster decisions by eliminating the middlemen in healthcare delivery processes. It also can help us focus on what matters to patients by personalizing healthcare based on the data that patients generate.
Automating clinical decisions based on patient’s data will not only help sick patients but also can be utilized to promote health for healthy people. Closing the data loop through automation comes with its challenges and barriers, which we will discuss in this topic.
