Revolution of Medical Education

Medical Education has taken a revolutionary change all over the world. One of the key reasons for the matter of concern is the safety of the patient. As per reports:

  • The medical error causes injury to about 3% of patients in hospitals that lead to 98,000 deaths per year in the USA.
  • A study by Harvard University shows that nearly 5.2 million people get affected by medical errors.
  • As per WHO around 138 million patients are harmed by doctor's errors.
  • FDA reports that 1.7 million injuries and 83,000 deaths in the last years have happened due to medical error.
  • The misdiagnosis rate is about 10%-15%, whereas the diagnostic leads to the death of about 40,000-50,000 patients every year.

Globally, one of the leading causes of death is due to medical error. Medical errors are the primary result of human mistakes. It may be due to communication problems and inadequate information. Hospitals are now turning into automation and improvised technology to reduce the strain on the system.

Healthcare professionals are prone to have psychological errors which affect them in the form of fear and anxiety. This affects their clinical confidence and leads to making errors. Most medical errors occur due to lack of practice and this leads to making mistakes.

The most effective mechanism that can improve the safety of the patient as well avoiding error is through providing structured initiative by education and clinical training. This reduces the barrier of reporting errors and improves the patient's safety.

Digital Future of healthcare

Currently, more than 90% of American hospitals have electronic health records. With about $30 billion payment, the medicine industry has changed to digital. After decades the industry has now switched from paper to silicone, the cards, tables, and x-rays have finally left the hospital building now.

The healthcare industry is now entering into the era of digital transformation, students should now be well aware of the platforms to serve in their field. Also, clinical rotation takes a major role in having the exposure, it is a period in which the medical students take part in different specialities to gain knowledge and experience. Students are exposed to various technologies, which prepare them for the future.

A recent survey has said that the healthcare and pharmaceutical companies have gone digital to an extent of 15% compared to that of other industries.

This is where students having exposure to technology plays an important role.

Hospital Management System

To avoid human error in terms of data, the Hospital management system helps the hospitals to speed up the process.

The Hospital Management System was introduced to solve the problem of avoiding human error and manages the paperwork of every patient that is associated with the hospital. Their work includes the following:

  • HMS maintains the record of the patient
  • Improves the efficiency of avoiding human errors
  • Improves the patient care
  • Reduces the work of documentation
  • Very easy access to patients data
  • It reduces the possibilities of error

With the modern settings, health care has become an essential evolution for the integration of technology. Digital medicine integrates the technology and the product that ease the process of offering service to the patients.

Digital Medicine

Digital Medicine is the technology used as a tool for measurement and intervention in the field of offering service to human health. It is a high-quality software and hardware which supports the practice of medicine which includes treatment, recovery, and prevention of diseases

The products of Digital medicine are mostly evidence-based tools that enhance the support to practice medicine.

Measurement products include:

  • Digital Biomarkers (Tracks change in tremor for Parkinson’s patient)
  • Electronic clinical outcome assessment ( Outcome survey)

Intervention Products include:

  • Digital therapeutics
  • Connected Implantables (like insulin pumps)

Both measure and Intervene

  • Continuous Glucose Monitors (CMG)

Davao Medical School Foundation aims to provide quality education and training to its students.
