The technology is revolutionizing the medicine. “The way of doing, the way of diagnosing, the way of treating patients has radically changed,” said Antonio Lacy, head of the Surgery Service at Hospital Clínic. Its implementation has been essential to manage the pandemic, but its possibilities are endless, especially thanks to artificial reality.
“We are on the way to predictive medicine, which will not wait until you feel bad, but will warn you before this happens,” said Carlos Iglesias, digital consultant and CEO of Runroom. But there is more. “It allows directing a remote intervention at a distance”, Antonio Lacy has pointed out; also, print “corneas, metal ribs …”, added Carlos Iglesias.
The digital consultant wanted to remind us that “we are already capable of restoring fertility by printing ovaries in 3D”. Technology and its algorithms they achieve better results, and also greater safety for patients. “That the patient is operated on and that he is in the hospital for as little time as possible. Ideally, he should return home and do a remote control,” Lacy remarked.
If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is to normalize television, possible thanks to technology. “It provides a better experience for the patient and makes the health system more efficient,” said Iglesias. Accustomed to nurses, doctors and assistants, the new “forms” are not going to be limited to this class of personnel.
According to the head of the Surgery Service of the Hospital Clinic, “biostatistics, mathematicians, biophysicists, bioengineers …” will enter. And although experts already predict that there will be more medical advances in the last decade than in the entire twentieth centuryThey agree that the current media are not making the most of it.
