The future of healthcare is shaping up in front of our eyes mainly through digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence, VR/AR, 3D-printing, robotics or nanotechnology. We have to familiarize ourselves with the latest developments in order to be able to control technology and not the other way around. We chatted with Dr. Azza Halim to get her insights on the future of healthcare. 

Dr. Azza Halim, is a board-certified anesthesiologist and multi-speciality trained physician in aesthetic medicine. 

In medicine and healthcare, digital technology could help transform unsustainable healthcare systems into sustainable ones, equalizing the relationship between medical professionals and patients, provide cheaper, faster and more effective solutions for diseases – technologies could win the battle for us against cancer, AIDS or Ebola – and could simply lead to healthier individuals living in healthier communities.

But as the saying goes, one has to be a master of his own house, so it is worth starting “the future” with the betterment of our own health through digital technologies, as well as changing our own attitude towards the concept of health as such and towards medicine and healthcare.

“Augmented reality differs from VR in two respects: users do not lose touch with reality and it puts information into eyesight as fast as possible. These distinctive features enable AR to become a driving force in the future of medicine; both on the healthcare providers’ and the receivers’ side,” says Halim. 

In the case of medical professionals, it might help medical students prepare better for real-life operations, as well as enable surgeons to enhance their capabilities.

As the future of medicine and healthcare is closely connected to the empowerment of patients as well as individuals taking care of their own health through technologies, I cannot leave out health trackers, wearables and sensors from my selection. They are great devices to get to know more about ourselves and retake control of our own lives.  

This is how Dr. Azza Halim integrates health, beauty and wellness thru procedures and patient empowerment utilizing the latest technologies.
