As the healthcare sector continues to manage through the pandemic and expects its lingering disruptive effects in the coming years, it needs to depend on collaboration, digitization and innovation to stay ahead of the competition. 

 

Catalina Imaging, a leading mobile CT scanner provider with service and storage locations in different parts of the US, shares these top 5 healthcare trends that are expected to continue in the coming years. 

 

Telemedicine 

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced the healthcare sector to adopt telemedicine not just to limit the spread of the virus but also to decongest hospitals, clinics and other similar facilities and prevent overwhelming the providers and the clinical supplies. 

Additionally, telemedicine benefits elderly patients and people in remote areas where quality healthcare is not readily accessible. 

 

Collaboration 

Financial pressures continue to be a prevalent issue as healthcare providers are finding ways to manage their operational costs and capital expenditures like the purchase of new equipment. As a result, a growing number of small- and medium-sized hospitals and clinics are partnering with mobile CT scanner providers like Catalina Imaging. 

Mobile CT scanners are “fixed” inside a trailer, which can be moved from different locations and operate in varying weather conditions thanks to its built-in heating and air conditioning system.

 

Revenue diversification 

US hospitals had around $320 billion in losses due to the impact of the COVID-19, according to a 2020 AHA report. This has prompted stakeholders to realize the importance of revenue diversification to limit the risks of unpredictable patient volumes, pandemics, and other disruptive events. 

One common way hospitals can diversify their revenue stream is through collaboration with pharma and tech companies which need data to create a profitable product that improves productivity and enhances patient care. 

Collaboration between hospitals and pharma/tech companies not only means additional funding but also the invention of systems that can improve patient experience and care. 

 

Smart automation and artificial intelligence 

The use of smart automation and AI eliminates or at least reduces time-consuming workloads, shifting them to a virtual workforce built specifically to manage high-volume tasks. With this added support, medical providers will have more time to focus on direct patient care and other things that require higher priorities. 

 

Workforce diversity 

With the country’s aging population, healthcare providers are finding ways to replace the retiring baby boomers. But to do this, they need to strengthen their inclusion and diversity programs.

 

Studies show that diverse teams and inclusive cultures generate better results, such as higher employee retention, better problem-solving methods, and greater engagement among members. 

 

2022 Healthcare Trends 

The healthcare trends explained above have only “scratched the surface” as stakeholders have identified other notable changes and innovative technologies that are taking stem cell therapy, robotics, genetic testing, and 3D bioprinting to the next level. 

 

Meanwhile, CT scan technology has also seen some dramatic improvements in recent years. For example, Catalina Imaging’s new mobile CT scanners deliver the same quality of image at a significantly reduced radiation dose.
