New and Emerging Clinical Needs Driving Healthcare Technology Innovations
While clinical needs can drive healthcare technology innovations, implementation of certain technologies can create new clinical needs. With the emergence of hundreds of new point-of-care devices gathering patient data, two new needs emerge: 1) authentication of these data sources to prevent wrong-patient errors, and 2) personalization of this data so that this massive data does not prevent patient-centered care.
