Microsoft is no stranger to the use of modern tech in the world of healthcare. Today, the company has unveiled a new podcast series that focuses upon the future of healthcare. Dubbed NextGen Health, the series covers several interesting aspects of the industry, such as personalizing patient experience, empowering care teams, and more.
The series showcases interviews with providers using groundbreaking tech, as well as with Microsoft Healthcare industry experts. A number of scenarios have been discussed by the tech giant over the course of this series to tackle questions like "what's next in healthcare?". One such scenario that has been discussed in the first episode, Reimagining Healthcare, has been described in the following way:
"You’re at your doctor’s office. You’re sitting casually in the exam room. Meanwhile, a surgeon is examining your brain. Thankfully, the slices and neural pathways your doctor can see from nearly every angle are on the OpenSight, a HoloLens mixed-reality headset calibrated and developed for surgical use by medical imaging company and Microsoft healthcare partner Novarad.”
The Redmond-based company has highlighted some of its services and apps that are playing a role in the healthcare industry, such as Microsoft Teams - that offers a tailor-made communication experience for healthcare organizations.
Each episode of NextGen Health offers interactive e-books and white papers to help you learn more about the topics that are touched. Although only six episodes have currently been released, over the course of the full series, Microsoft will be discussing several other topics such the importance of AI in the field of health, genomic breakthrough for effective cancer treatment, and more.
