Importance of Innovations in the Healthcare Industry

As the advent of digitalization in healthcare continues to expand throughout the industry, innovative medical technologies are all set to deliver substantial values in the organization which implements them. Innovations have become necessary in a world where disruptive digital technologies are revolutionizing patient care with each passing day. 

The healthcare industry is undoubtedly one of the fastest growing industries. The adoption of advanced technology has facilitated the industry in every domain. For instance, using electronic health records has helped improve the coordination and quality of healthcare. Similarly, many mobile apps and wearable technologies enable patients to utilize better care options. 

One of the major drivers of innovation in healthcare is the patient care experience. The Healthcare industry always strives to improve the experience of its patients. For example, in COVID-19, various mobile apps helped patients to utilize medical consultation and care from the ease of their doorstep. This innovation has recently altered the health industry landscape as many people prefer remote medical assistance over physical consultations. 

The most prominent example of growing innovations in the medical industry can be seen in dentistry. The evolution of dental veneers has replaced bulky and visible braces. To compete in the global market, the healthcare industry focuses on improving efficiency and reducing waste of time and money. Technology in the form of innovations can help achieve this goal by automating tasks and offering features that can track and manage the medical record of patients. 

In order to introduce the concept of Artificial Intelligence in the medical industry, Jasjit Suri has made several contributions. His work in the field of Biomedical engineering, industrial computer engineering, clinical and regulatory engineering, and software and hardware engineering is significantly appreciated in technical and medical industries. His famous invention of biomedical vascular imaging technology with AtheroPoint LLC, Roseville, is known for its perfection. Suri, a medical imaging specialist and a biomedical engineer, came up with the concept of using image-based artificial intelligence (AI) to characterize the tissues of COVID-19 patients so that the severity of the infection can be investigated. 

Suri has also contributed to the field of machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), deep hybrid learning, and mainly in implementing AI in the field of biomedicine. One of his recent works is in the biased evaluation of AI systems and the design of “Seen AI” vs. “Unseen AI” systems for COVID, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and Parkinson’s. He strived in maintaining intellectual property portfolios and still making adequate efforts to develop products that can benefit the healthcare industry. 

He has managed operations in the healthcare medical industry at CTO and COO levels and linked with several global diagnostic centers. Being an all-time innovator in the medical industry, Suri is also a recognized member of the IEEE-EMBS and a well-known speaker in the field of biology and medicine, especially in medical devices for healthcare markets. He has written many books, including Multimodality Imaging: Deep learning application – IOP eBook, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, Cardiovascular and Coronary Artery Imaging, Diabetes and Retinopathy, and much more. 

Accepting innovations in the healthcare industry can facilitate it in many ways, such as the surgical robots allowing surgeons to perform operations with greater accuracy and precision. It can be very helpful for things like removing cancerous tumors. Hence, technology, digitalization, or inventions should be welcomed in the medical industry to increase productiveness standards. 

The future of healthcare technology is full of potential. Many inventions have already improved the efficiency of the industry to some extent. In addition, novel technologies can streamline workflows, leading to better productivity and patient experience.
