Vinoba Bhave Research Institute (VBRI) sees that network of medical sensory devices will facilitate virtual and remote clinics for accurate treatment. It will also build a SaaS/PaaS model to fully utilize the potential of electronic health records (EHRs) for accurate treatments.
The Institute views that healthcare aided by technology has brought numerous medical innovations that have changed human lives. The global healthcare industry, which is growing at 4.82%, will gain impetus with new innovations and inventions in the field of medical science. This multi-trillion dollar industry is witnessing great scientific breakthroughs ready to bring a paradigm shift in modern healthcare. The convergence of advanced research, newer technologies, and scientific interventions have brought a new dawn of medical innovations in 2018. These five top medical innovations in 2018 have been cancer therapy by inhibition of negative immune regulation. The second is the artificial pancreas to manage diabetes. The third is telemedicine. The fourth is treatment of inherited retinal diseases thorough gene therapy. The fifth is internet of medical things (IoMT) for healthcare.
According to Ashutosh Tiwari, chairman and managing director, VBRI Group, the interconnect group of smart medical devices coupled with the existing communication network is leading healthcare into the total digitization phase. A cloud-based connection of wearables, smart sensors, mobile diagnostic machines, and AI-powered health monitors can allow doctors to investigate and access the vitals of patients with greater accuracy.
The wide pool of data available to doctors can be processed with help of Big Data analytics to prescribe precision medicine. The IoMT has begun covering the enormous medical infrastructure, which is full of strict protocols and procedures, he added.
Now 2019 will be a year of integrated intelligent healthcare infrastructure at home where anyone can expect ‘value/outcomes-based care system’ emphasis to globalize. VBRI provides integrated intelligent healthcare. The combination of IoT, AI and nanotechnology will deliver comprehensive best healthcare services for everyone to live healthy long life, said Tiwari.

Although there has been considerable progress in cancer treatment, yet 2018 witnessed new discovery in cancer therapy. Nobel Laureates James P. Allison and TasukuHonjo discovered a new principle to stimulate the inherent ability of the body’s immune system to attack tumor cells. These breakthroughs have marked a great milestone in the fight against cancer, he said.
Similarly the innovation in diabetes treatment with Hybrid Closed-Loop Insulin Delivery System or the Artificial Pancreas is here to change the treatment procedures. Instead of the traditional painful insulin management, there is now has a direct communication between the insulin pump and glucose monitor. It enables blood glucose stabilization and helps in making type-1 diabetes more manageable. The emerging technology is replacing the open-loop system of assessing required insulin consumption.
The new gene therapy to cure inherited retinal diseases is yet another innovation where curative genes will aid visual function improvements.

Development in AI, Big Data analytics, and robotics have changed the course of medical science across all healthcare segments. With the development in ICT and cloud-based networks, the healthcare services have extended to the patient’s home crossing all geographical barriers.
