India’s healthcare sector is currently undergoing accelerating technological expansion and modernisation. According to a survey conducted by the India Brand Equity Foundation, the Indian healthcare industry grew from US$ 110 billion to US$ 372 billion between 2016 and 2022.
This expansion has been supported by technological advancements, namely telemedicine, robotics, and e-health, among others. Apart from this, the rise in medical tourism in the country is one of the reasons for the healthcare sector’s consistent growth. According to the same survey, the Indian medical tourism market will be worth US$ 13.42 billion by 2026 as a result of the country’s technically sound and affordable healthcare.
As healthcare institutions look to improve facilities to provide enhanced experiences to patients who need care or visitors who are accompanying them, the idea of adopting highly functional audiovisual (AV) solutions for various functions is gaining more prominence. To that end, here are five AV applications that are changing the fundamental parameters of the healthcare system.
1. Data Transmission for Better Decisions
Decision-making and critical thinking are integral to operations in the healthcare sector. Telemedicine, real-time data visualisation, decision support systems, and other areas are just a few examples of how AV integration promotes better decisions. With the help of the right AV systems, analysing data in real-time has become easier. It is possible to quickly identify significant changes in a patient’s health by simulating video conferencing and broadcasting capabilities. This enables quick turnaround for decisions and significant improvements to the general healthcare offered.
Caretakers are now more capable of offering precise and prompt solutions in urgent situations thanks to telemedicine, for instance, a remote diagnosis technique utilising AV integration. Seeing how the industry is aggressively employing visual solutions, the market projections about the video conferencing segment expanding at a CAGR of over 11% until 2029 seem fitting.
The advantage of proper AV integration is not only quick decision-making but also efficient information transfer. For example, at Resurgent, we use zero-latency transmitters, medical-grade cameras, and other similar technologies to power our solutions so that there is no lag between data transmission and reception.
2. Effective Presentations and Seminars
AV systems prove immensely viable when it comes to giving effective presentations and seminars, especially in a healthcare facility where attention to detail is a crucial factor. AV integration offers seamless connectivity, premium audio, a lighting control system, and a wireless presentation system, among others, enabling leadership and management to deliver seamless presentations.
Today, AV solutions can help broadcast recorded meetings to other rooms, creating an integrated learning model. These AV integrations provide high-quality audio and video, facilitating seamless communication and enhancing the effectiveness of information exchange. Video conferencing, in particular, has allowed a connection between urban and rural areas for knowledge exchange via these seminars. The ambit of virtual reality adds to the interactive and engagement factor with surreal visualisations.
3. Advancements Leading to Better Education
Education and training in healthcare have been evolving quickly, and as technology reaches its pinnacle, healthcare institutions must provide the best solutions for integrated learning. It has become necessary and imperative to create virtual labs and implement integrated AV learning models. These integrated learning stations are ideal as they let students watch live procedures broadcasted in high quality at their stations without any lag in real-time streaming.
As elucidated above, AV integrations make it simple to communicate between rural and urban healthcare facilities for a variety of activities, including workshops, lectures, and seminars with seasoned healthcare professionals. Not just this, AV integration helps provide students with audiovisual explanations either in real-time or in recorded sessions for audio/visual cues while understanding a concept. These recordings are perfect for facilitating an interactive learning session. And, with virtual reality simulation, the learning just gets better and more enjoyable.
Today, the healthcare industry is being backed by cutting-edge technology as well as hands-on training models, enabling the best learning environment. Resurgent provides integrated learning solutions like SIMStation, such as SIMStation Essential, Pro Gen 2, and Enterprise, that take clinical simulation, assessments and learnings up a notch.
4. Better Support to Patients
The Indian e-health market is expected to reach US$ 10.6 billion by 2026, creating new opportunities for well-established healthcare facilities to step out of their traditional models with the help of AV solutions. Audiovisual integration can be a great asset in empowering healthcare facilities via video conferencing, remote monitoring, virtual reality, digital signage, etc. These integrations are particularly ideal for monitoring patients remotely in real-time.
Digital maturity further bodes well for creating and delivering interactive information and relaying intricate details that are otherwise hard to explain in layman’s terms. The benefit of this is straight-up enhanced patient care. With real-time monitoring, online consultations, etc., the healthcare value chain is getting stronger.
5. Easy Information and Wayfinding
A great way to integrate audio and visual functionality at any healthcare facility and provide visitors with simple information is through digital wayfinding maps, audio announcements, digital kiosks, static markings, etc. These features offer a simple and free way to improve the brand’s overall value and grow a loyal customer base by quickly reducing visitors’ and patients’ anxiety and confusion.
The Bottom Line
In addition to making the staff’s job easier, AV integration improves the patients’ satisfaction level, which works as the basis for strong brand positioning in the market.
