How the typical hospital will change with tech and shift to patient-centered care

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, May 23, 2014
In the near future, technology will change the way we interact with hospitals, many experts say. New medications and surgical techniques will reduce the time patients spend in hospital beds. Vidchat conversations will replace some visits. Some health problems that require a visit to the hospital now, such as a rash, will be dealt with by sending a photo from your smartphone. And personal data, from smartphones and networks between hospitals and pharmacies, will play a larger role in doctors' decision-making. In addition to technological change, other trends, such as increased competition for patients and a growing emphasis on sustainability, are transforming hospitals.
