Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) technologies are very useful for patients as well as medical practitioners. Recently, almost all the hospitals have applied RPM in order to treat COVID-19 patients as a part of an interactive healthcare plan. This RPM technology can efficiently transmit the vital signs of a patient in real-time. Patients will be able to enter their symptoms and wearable tools will send details about blood oxygen level, temperature, and blood pressure which doctors can analyze and monitor. Dashboards offer proper guidance and also send alerts if any changes arise during the disease and assist the medical team in responding immediately.


Nowadays, almost all the patients, doctors, as well as the nurses prefer to interact virtually more frequently rather than directly approaching. Sending messages or video chatting will make almost everything very easier for both patients and doctors. Patients will be able to get answers to their queries without visiting crowded places which will be risk free and saves time of the doctors or medical practitioners.

Virtual and augmented reality

Virtual Reality (VR) is highly beneficial during therapeutic conditions. The AppliedVR platform is specialized in healthcare and allows patients to come out of any complex medical treatments with the assistance of a VR tool. During the unpleasant treatments, VR technology will drag the attention of patients by taking them into traveling to visually attractive places.

Augmented Reality (AR) will show additional details on the digital device along with the real world that makes AR a pioneer in surgical diagnostics and planning. Even though various developments have already started, there will be more AR and VR projects to be implemented in the healthcare industry this year.

AI and Chatbots

Chatbots are greatly helpful in enhancing the healthcare support system. Chatbots should be made intuitive so that they can offer relevant responses. Some of the examples of usage of chatbots in the healthcare sector includes medication reminders, appointment booking, or checking the health conditions of patients.

With the advancements of Artificial Intelligence (AI), chatbot functionality can be improved offering benefits to various areas of healthcare for both doctors as well as patients. The proper AI will certainly enable chatbots for helping patients to double-check on medical diagnosis, manage chronic health illness, and offer more personalized responses.

Voice User Interfaces

Voice user interface is the interface that enables contact-free communications and allows users to command and control the device systems through speech. In the healthcare industry, voice user interface will be the perfect solution for contactless operation even integrating with graphic user interface. Implementing voice user interface is very efficient especially during the pandemic situation and even after the post pandemic.
