New technologies are transforming how we provide health care. But how should healthcare systems prepare for these new technologies? This article will discuss the various challenges associated with using new technologies. Read on for a review of Exclusion criteria, Payment models, and Virtual reality (VR).
Studies that evaluate the impact of technology on patient care often fail to address some of the most important inclusion and exclusion criteria. For example, many studies fail to report demographic data, such as educational attainment and race, and over half do not collect this information. These factors have been shown to significantly impact health outcomes, so reliable reporting of these variables is essential to external validity. Other studies fail to report information on digital literacy, which is a critical component of effective digital health interventions.
Researchers evaluated 29 studies using the inclusion and exclusion criteria. These studies were grouped according to study design and geographic location. The United States, Spain, and South Korea were the countries where the majority of the studies were conducted. The United Kingdom and Hong Kong also had one study each. The findings of these studies were used to form the basis for the next analysis. Among the studies evaluated, five met the inclusion criteria and were used as the basis for the final analysis.
The World Health Organization recently released the first digital health guidelines in history. The document outlines 10 recommendations to help healthcare providers use digital tools to improve patient care, access to care, and health outcomes. The guidelines were developed over the past two years and cover such areas as mobile health, telemedicine, and supply-chain management. This article will highlight a few of the most important guidelines for healthcare organizations. To read the complete document, click the link below.
