Posted: May 05, 2017
Product engineering and trending technologies like IoT and Big Data are revamping business sectors by digitizing the processes and providing accurate data. Healthcare is not an exception to it. Product engineering transform healthcare bit by bit with innovations and has helped to reduce healthcare costs, encourage patient engagement, boost population health, and finally make healthcare more accessible and transparent at all levels.
While the product engineering companies have specific purpose and defined direction, the focus of the engineering services companies get much broader. Product engineering usually involves working towards fixing issues due to price, product excellence, implementation process, dependability, maintenance, anticipated product lifespan and user features; and Healthcare industry can benefit considerably from product engineering by developing Healthcare products applying faster go-to-market strategy and make sure that these products are successful and widely accepted in the market.
We are witnessing a golden era of disruptive healthcare transformation and it is because product engineering has contributed a lot in this space. Let us look at some of the benefits.
Accurate Data: This has to be the first and the foremost benefit of adopting Product engineering for healthcare. A recent survey says that data error is 3rd largest cause of death in US. Government has adopted carrot and stick rule for healthcare where they are supposed to adopt technology or are kicked out. HealthIT solutions ensure that these challenges are countered by providing accurate data, which can be readily used for clinical practices.
Time: Managing and maintaining patients details in files and referring them when required eats lots and lots of your important time. With a solution in place, not only healthcare providers but also patients can stay aware about progress of a treatment.
Cost: Product engineering solutions help transform Healthcare delivery and bring down the insurance and medical expenses at a larger rate. Not only this, technology makes you aware about progress of your health, which means you need not to visit a physician every time saving high amount of cost.
Improved efficiency: Since, the application of engineering solutions to the Healthcare devices give accurate results and better time management, there is a huge rise in the improvement of the overall efficiency, which further results in customer satisfaction which is the basic focus factor of every care giver.
