From big data to VR viewers, new technologies will bring big news even in the medical world, improving the services offered to users. Compared to fifty years ago, the average life span of a man has been extended, and by far. The credit goes largely to the scientific discoveries that have allowed to cure diseases that previously led to death. Technology has also done its part: increasingly reliable tools have become part of operating theaters that have allowed doctors to quickly diagnose people’s illnesses. Not only in medical science, but in general life technology has changed our lives – information. With just a simple phone number (unknown caller) we can now know the complete details of the caller. Yes, free background check. Powerful reverse lookup tool where you can search the details of the person – legally.
The world of medicine and technology
The world of medicine is close to another great revolution and the merit is once again technology. In operating theatres and surgeries, new technologies are popping up that could forever change the treatment of certain diseases. VR viewers and big data will allow doctors to facilitate the diagnosis and treatment of certain diseases. The viewers for the mixed reality of Microsoft, the Halo-Lens will be used in the operating room for operations to the vertebrae, helping the doctors to not make mistakes. But technology is also allowing people to research the symptoms of diseases on the Internet and to understand what they are suffering from. Here are the technologies that will change medicine.
Big data technology and medicine
The potential of big data has been analysed over and over again. It has always been emphasized that a correct use of big data can change entire economic sectors and beyond. Medicine is also starting to find out how useful large data databases can be especially in diagnosing rare diseases. If the symptoms fail to understand what a patient is suffering from, it is possible to compare his data with those of millions of patients, looking for similar cases so as to make targeted analyses.
The importance of social networks
Social platforms are not only important for keeping in touch with friends, but also for receiving advice and explanations from doctors. More and more doctors are creating “fan” pages where they publish articles on scientific research or inform users about the latest medical discoveries. Furthermore, more and more doctors are trying to unmask the fake news on the Net: through their social accounts they try to remove conspiracy theories, but their intent is not always understood by users.
Connected twenty-four out of twenty-four
In a couple of years going to the doctor will be practically useless. You can contact doctors and nurses directly via your smartphone. VR viewers will allow remote diagnosis to be made directly, but before this type of technology becomes a reality it will be necessary to wait a little longer. For now we can be satisfied with the possibility of contacting a doctor directly through WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger and asking for advice by sending photos or explaining the symptoms of your illness in great detail.
