A Study of Digital Transformation in Healthcare & Its Trends
Abstract: The health industry relies heavily on the exchange of data. Hospitals, primary care centres, clinics, and labs are just a few places that produce massive amounts of data. The need for standardized national patient identity in many countries and concerns over patient privacy and data security are significant challenges. This study aims to analyze the scope of multidimensional benefits that can be achieved for the healthcare sector, especially in India, with the implementation of EMR systems with advanced technology, leading to a large-scale digital transformation. Medical history, family history, test results, and prescription list are essential. Medical practitioners could better monitor patient health, diagnose concerns, and reduce patient care errors. These days, people's medical histories are often dispersed among various doctors and institutions. Information is kept in the minds of its keepers, on bits of paper, and in digital spreadsheets. While some medical facilities use electronic medical records, the vast majority still rely on paper files to retain patients? medical histories. This article used a mixed methodology for analyzing the research problem. Primary quantitative data was gathered from the survey, and secondary qualitative data was used in the paper for analysis. Quantitative analysis is conducted by various statistical tests using SPSS, while a thematic analysis is also presented in the paper to explore the existing secondary information on the topic thoroughly. This report examines how hospitals in India and throughout the world are digitizing patient data to illuminate the healthcare industry's digital transformation. In keeping with current thinking, this article highlighted the advantages of switching from the conventional paper-based healthcare system to a computer-based one focusing on the individual patient. The results of the paper further indicate that blockchain, AI, machine learning, IoT, and Big Data analytics are currently trending in the market that can be utilized for a sustainable and large-scale digital transformation. Thus, it is concluded that digital transformation is necessary for enhancing the healthcare sector's overall efficiency, especially for documentation processes.
