Technology solutions for patient interaction are helping protect healthcare workers and the public from unnecessary COVID-19 exposure.  As many of these modes of care become the new norm, the supporting technologies will need to integrate with back-office operations and evolve to have a greater influence on patient outcomes.

In this paper, we take a look at optimizing three key technologies:

  • Telemedicine/mobility technologies should be enhanced to address architecture/infrastructure, scaling, bandwidth, data reliability, and privacy/security.
  • Virtualization needs more stringent cybersecurity measures and enhancements in application and data virtualization, multi-cloud scaling, and incorporating virtual event technologies.
  • Data modeling and predictive forecasting can evolve to help monitor chronic disease patients at higher risk of complications, recently discharged patients for a relapse of symptoms, and contact tracing for exposed and infected individuals.
