Advancement in the Field of Medical Technology in India

 

The idea of "taking care of your body" has typically meant going to the doctor once a year and reviewing some standard lab results. However, improvements in medical technology are significantly and quickly altering the healthcare scene in ways that go far beyond this straightforward strategy.

 

There are now more options besides settling for a fast five-minute yearly consultation with a doctor. Patients can obtain a complete picture of their health that has ever been available. Thanks to advancements like genomics, cancer blood testing, MRIs, sleep analysis, and many others. 

As a result, the healthcare system is undergoing a revolution that will make it more proactive, individualised, and practical than ever before.

 

Medical technologists are behind-the-scenes in the healthcare industry. They are qualified to carry out inquiries recommended to patients by their doctors and report the findings to the physician for further action. Radiographers, optometrists, and medical technologists are the key specialists in the paramedical field covered here.

 

Recent Advances in Medical Technology 

Medical technology has improved substantially since the invention of eyeglasses and the stethoscope. Because mobile internet is now more widely available, the middle class is becoming more affluent, the world's population is ageing, the healthcare industry is changing, and related technology is developing more swiftly than in the past.

In order to re-skill in medical technology by 2030, more than a billion individuals will reportedly be required, according to the World Economic Forum profile of the healthcare sector.

 

Here are some revolutionary medical technology innovations that students learn in a medical technology course in 2022:

 

 

  • Remote Patient Monitoring 

 

 

Physicians can now keep tabs on a patient without being physically close because of remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology. Better patient outcomes, quicker reaction times, and long-term cost savings are just a few advantages of RPM. In fact, RPM and telemedicine work together to minimise everyone's exposure and the requirement for patient travel.

 

Various versions of RPM were permitted for coverage as a result of legislative amendments made to the health sector in response to the Covid-19 outbreak, which significantly increased the popularity of this novel therapy.

 

 

  • Artificial Intelligence 

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is used in healthcare in many different ways. The primary AI advancement in healthcare in 2022 will be the application of machine learning to analyse enormous amounts of patient data and other information. Programmers can simulate human cognition and develop machines that appear to think, learn, make decisions, and act by designing algorithms that are specifically suited to the task at hand.

 

 

  • Digital Therapeutics 

 

 

Patients who suffer from chronic conditions typically require ongoing medical care from their doctors. Patient education, symptom monitoring, medication alterations, and behavioural modifications are some of the therapeutic options available. This care is time-consuming for both the patients and the medical personnel. Future medical technology will enhance the chances of developing remote treatments that can take its place.

Depending on the patient's particular medical condition, a doctor might advise digital therapy. These complex software applications can be accessed via a patient's home computer or as apps on their smartphone. They undergo the same rigorous testing, such as randomised clinical studies, as all drugs do. Digital treatments are particularly adapted for treating illnesses like type I and type II diabetes, cancer, anxiety, musculoskeletal pain, ADHD, asthma, migraines, and insomnia.

 

  • Internet of Things

The invisible network created by physically connected internet-connected gadgets is known as the "internet of things." This includes cutting-edge medical technology like wearable sensors, 5G-enabled gadgets, and remote patient monitoring. For the purpose of being able to deliver the most precise and recent patient data, more than 500,000 web-enabled medical equipment are becoming more and more connected.

 

Smart medical equipment will be able to network with other nearby smart devices as software and technology advance, which will assist improve patient outcomes. Doctors will soon be able to methodically and holistically monitor their patients.

 

Future Medical Technology Ideas 

The advancement of medical technology in India is following the worldwide trends that have created a bunch of innovations. Here are some future medical technology advances that will definitely promote healthcare to the next level:

 

  • Crowdsourcing in Healthcare

In certain cases, medical mysteries go unanswered and leave health professionals with more questions than answers. This is where a group of individuals working together might offer insights that give the professionals a fresh viewpoint that may help them find a treatment.

 

  • Bio-trackers that can be mounted

Wearable bio-monitoring technology enables physicians to gather crucial data about you as do your daily activities.

With the use of this information, your doctor will be able to have a better understanding of your lifestyle in order to make a diagnosis and recommend ways to assist prevent further medical issues.

 

  • Medical Online Communities

Platforms that link people with comparable conditions and symptoms offer encouragement and assistance to sufferers. Patients can use these platforms to track the care they receive as well as whether it had a positive or negative impact. 

 

Careers in Medical Technology

Recent Advances in Medical Technology

 

A medical technologist is hired to

  • Perform laboratory tests according to established lab practice and record the findings of those tests accurately.
  • Assess the legitimacy of a specimen within the first 20 minutes of obtaining the specimen.
  • Notify clients stating the recollection procedures if standards are not met. 
  • Identify, diagnose, and fix any equipment problems that might occur in the laboratory.
  • Verify all test findings to make sure they match the specimen properly.

 

Conclusion

Future medical technology predictions have been discussed in this blog. Also, the readers can grab an idea regarding the various career opportunities that will be growing in this sector in the upcoming years.

A 12-month programme on medical technology, which will help you learn future medical technology predictions, is offered by Skill-Lync in partnership with Andhra Pradesh MedTech Zone (AMTZ). It includes a 6-month internship at AMTZ's 270-acre site in Vizag.

The job opportunities for medical technologists are growing at a faster pace of 7%, which is above average. The average salary of medical technology professionals across India is estimated to be ₹57,148 per month. Pursuing a Biomedical engineering course might offer you a promising career.
