Future Application of Smart Medicine

- Feb 20, 2020-

  In the future, the smart medicine system is built on the sharing platform of health care data interconnection, which not only provides health care management services for ordinary people, but also improves the ecology of doctors and nurses' employment, the ecology of patients' treatment and the ecology of chronic disease management, as well as disseminates healthy life philosophy.

  The following are typical applications of smart medical in the future.

  Health care robot. Now Japan has developed a robot for the elderly, which can respond to the voice requirements of the elderly. For example, when it is ordered to help the old man get up, it will walk to the bedside, reach out a robot hand to lift him according to the height of the old man and the bed, and then send him to a designated place, such as the living room, toilet, or even put him in a wheelchair. In the future, the in-depth development of health care robots will be one of the development directions of smart medicine.

  Simulation medical system. At present, the United States has established simulation medicine as a separate discipline, and Guangdong Province of China is also trying to promote the construction of this discipline. For example, we can build a three-dimensional data model through computer composition, input the patient's examination image, ECG and other personal examination data into the simulation system, and simulate the realistic operation environment, so that doctors can simulate the situations that may be encountered at the operation site, such as the safety of where the blood vessel is cut, the right dose of anesthesia, etc. The simulation medical system will give simulation feedback accordingly, and make a prediction for the actual operation situation of doctors, so as to help doctors choose more accurate treatment measures. In the future, when such technologies become more mature, we need to promote these technologies from the Grade-A tertiary hospitals to the grass-roots hospitals, so as to truly realize the popularization of smart medicine.

  Intelligent multi-disciplinary consultation is also one of the key development trends of smart medicine in the future. Intelligent multi-disciplinary consultation can help some patients to carry out basic disease screening online, guide rational drug use, and judge whether patients need to be sent to hospital for treatment, so as to alleviate the current situation of medical resource shortage.
