Digital Health and Technology Trends in the US

AUSTIN, Texas, August 1, 2022 — (ACN Newswire) — What role and purpose will businesses adopt to influence the social contract, and how empowering consumers and providers can transform healthcare business models using technology ?

Partners in Digital Health’s blockchain in healthcare and telehealth portfolio reflects and sets market trends. Here are some trends and current issues to think about.

Cost, location and preferences have prioritized home care and care transitions as an aging population and looming health care worker shortages impact the US health care system, where virtual care presents an opportunity to build long-term sustainability in the system.

The adoption of a zero-trust architecture to improve security in agencies and businesses should be quickly adopted following the Executive Order to Improve the Nation’s Cybersecurity (EO 14208). If you’ve recently been hacked, you understand the urgency.

A fully realized digital 3D world (Web3/Metaverse) creating virtual holographic experiences, including digital twins that operate in real time, must be created for safe use. Healthcare is at the forefront with medical education and holoportation initiatives. Ambient AI, or real-time human perception technology that enables smart environments, is an area where technology can anticipate and respond to people’s needs, personalize and predict behavior across the continuum of care – and reduce the cost of care. Compatible AI-powered conversational patient intake can also increase time and quality engagement with patients.

Diversity and inclusion present new market opportunities for drug discovery, startups, applications, payment models, cross-border collaborations, market investments, and more. Pandemics teach us that there are significant differences in patient populations with sexual, cultural, age and geographic differences that we must take into account.

The cash economy in healthcare is on the rise. A health revolution is happening in retail as employers give their employees cash instead of health insurance. Consumers pay cash for drugs and services that are cheaper than covered by insurance — and participants don’t have to deal with systemic red tape.

Price Transparency Plans for the health insurance marketplace to make hospital prices transparent so patients can compare the cost of care are accepted by 85% of Americans. Consumers believe that reducing costs and improving quality through transparency should be a priority. Site neutral payments are another way to level the playing field and could save the US up to $350 billion over the next decade.

Cryptography and Application of Quantum Mechanics for an Unbreakable Code for Secure Two-Party Interaction. The US is hesitant to lose its competitive edge and may already have.

Blockchain will improve the way society interacts with government services and will have broad economic and social implications. Global health maps and interoperable permissioned global networks are examples and only the beginning of the wave affecting healthcare.

At ConV2X, almost every aspect of blockchain technology is explored, including cybersecurity and quantum computing, patient experiences, credentials, data ownership, Metaverse, NFT, DAO, TradFi, privacy protection, collaborative workflows and processes, inventory management, fraud, chargebacks, precision medicine, zero-trust frameworks, standards, and more.

A true revolution of borderless interoperability, led by users, activists and pioneers challenging market integrity and sensitivity, is underway.
