Healthcare software is any software developed for the medical industry. The software could help with hospital administration, handling medical equipment, helping healthcare professionals, or improving patient outcomes. Software vendors provide services for the healthcare facility or even off-premise ones like remote patient monitoring.
The main issues hospitals usually face are logistical - administration, supplying equipment, handling patients, etc. Professionals must use a lot of paper to manually document everything, which is prone to human error or deterioration over time. Staff also spend a lot of time instructing patients, and scheduling appointments, which can be costly.
A healthcare provider can address these issues directly with the proper software.
