The advent of the digital age has brought many changes to America's healthcare system. These changes likely have a large and positive impact on your health.
Thanks to the ever-increasing capacity of mobile phones, patients now have hands on access to health updates, such as reminders from their physician and real-time test results. There is also an increasing market for smart phone apps designed to measure biometric data, such as heart rate and blood pressure. With these, you can monitor your own health between checkups and even send the results on to your healthcare provider.
Above all, the integration of the Internet and the healthcare system has increased the communication between healthcare providers and their patients. This means that doctors and patients are in contact more than ever throughout the year, rather than simply at once a year checkups. For lifelong health, this communication can make a big difference.
