How Data Is Augmenting Physician Diagnoses [Future Of Health]
Sophisticated analytics tools are helping doctors determine the best treatment plans for their patients, while reducing overall costs.
Data gathering is being used to analyze and improve most aspects of our lives, even healthcare. While it may seem like an impossibility now, the next time you pay a visit to the doctor’s office, they might be able to tell a good deal about how well you’re feeling, before you even step foot into the office.
In the latest Future of Health report from PSFK Labs’, we have uncovered a trend we’ve called Data-Driven Treatment Plans, whereby hospitals and physicians are leveraging results culled by sophisticated analytics systems to help determine the most effective diagnosis and treatment options for their patients. These platforms are able to consider a wider range of criteria from aggregated success rates to individual medical history, helping augment doctors’ decision-making abilities as they optimize the overall cost of healthcare, and may one day even be able to predict diseases before they strike. Read below to see how this trend is manifesting within the medical community.
