Seniors Need Healthcare

We humans all require healthcare, and senior citizens need more attention to health issues as we age. Unfortunately, one of the main barriers to receiving the necessary level of healthcare is the practical element of being unable to physically access a healthcare professional. However, thanks to advances in technology, this may soon become a thing of the past.

Home Healthcare Adaptations (http://www.home-healthcare-adaptations.ie/), a home care company based in Ireland, created this infographic which explores how the world of healthcare might look in the near future. It profiles the concept of ‘virtual healthcare’, whereby patients can receive a virtual home visit through a hologram of their physician, and also a virtual doctor app where patients can receive information on treatments available to them by simply browsing their smartphone or tablet.

Although the idea of virtual healthcare still has some obstacles to overcome, such as fears over data security, a reluctance from physicians to adopt the technology and the costs of implementation, it has the potential to dramatically revolutionize the healthcare industry. It stands to drastically reduce the waiting time for patients to be treated, while also saving millions of dollars in healthcare expenditure through increased productivity from physicians. There are numerous benefits both for patients and healthcare professionals, and that can only be good news for all parties.
