Mobile technology ( mHealth ), the world of wearables (technological devices applied to clothe), telehealth services, teleconsultation, telemedicine … even the management of the huge hospital databases that are managed, form today, the base of Digital Health.
Environments change, systems evolve, the application of technology in the healthcare environment opens doors to new forms of medicine.
Every day more we talk of personalized medicine, the exponential medicine, of the Big Data, the technological revolution in health … but you know how to integrate all these concepts in your practice every day?
New technologies are advancing at a frenetic pace.
On the other hand, from the Universities, the training has remained the same for many decades.
There are many reasons for acquiring digital skills, and they can be extrapolated to all business sectors, but I want to expose you to what I consider to be more realistic in the health field:
- Technology integrated into people’s lives.
With regard to the world of health, advances are so disruptive and so fast that it is essential to be up-to-date on new technologies at all levels.
All technological advances must be at the service of people, and making the correct use of all resources will help you improve productivity and become a better professional.
- The more knowledge, the more competitive.
A healthcare professional who integrates your technical/academic knowledge, professional experience, and skills in the digital world will be the most in-demand healthcare professional.
The field of opportunities that opens up before a qualified healthcare professional with an innovative profile is immense. Do not miss the opportunity to stand out in your sector.
- And finally, continuous training.
The Internet has channels and tools to expand the knowledge acquired in health, but you have to know exactly where to look for it, how to use it, how to optimize it and how to select it.
