Medical transcription is the process where the vocal prescriptions from healthcare professionals are converted into written documents so that they can be stored in the records and are easily accessible. These records are stored as electronic health records in the hospital directory and help manage and track patients' medical reports. Medical transcription software can be built using AI algorithms which are also in trend in recent times.

Virtual Reality and metaverse are completely new fields that are finding use cases in multiple avenues and their benefits in healthcare are yet to be fully explored. VR and metaverse take users to a completely new landscape where they can break free from physical reality and immerse themselves in an experience that can free them of mental stress. There are also experiments aiming to make it beneficial for patients with mental health issues.

In the digital era, hospitals have an added responsibility to safeguard sensitive data about patients. Given the challenges it comes with, hospitals are always looking out for solutions that can help them organize the information and ensure its privacy. Business enthusiasts can develop systems that can solve this problem and help medical agencies document and manage sensitive data. They can even build solutions for patients to manage their medical history and share it with the doctor of their choice.

5. Tele health apps

In this new era of everything online, healthcare can also be provided online for acute diseases. There are many healthcare apps through which a patient can book and entrepreneurs can take inspiration from|Pexels

The Covid-19 pandemic unlocked a new normal, where people could get work done without being in direct touch with anyone. Be it their jobs or even their health checkups. Telehealth apps enable patients and doctors to connect without the need for them to be physically present in one place. Patients need to book an online appointment and then consult the doctor through a video or voice call. The doctors write prescriptions, and patients can directly order the medicines from the app itself. Telehealth apps are sustainable business ideas for budding entrepreneurs as they operate in the core of the medical industry and have enormous potential to grow.

6. Drug rehabilitation facility

Drug abuse is rising at a fast pace with an increase of about 11% by 2030, per the World Drug Report. So there is a pressing need to open drug rehabilitation facilities where such patients can be treated. Entrepreneurs can come up with facilities that help treat drug addicts and even raise awareness about the impact that drugs can have on young folks. Technology can also be leveraged to provide innovative solutions that can help addicts combat drug obsession and live a healthy lifestyle.

7. Nurturing health awareness

Not only patients but doctors, medical coaches, trainers, and dieticians also want to upgrade themselves and know better about the medical field. Just studying medicine is not enough as during emergencies, one must be aware of quick solutions. Therefore, websites like WebMD, MayoClinic, and ClevelandClinic offer blogs, technical information, recent reports, and surveys on a wide range of topics from which a wide range of people with varying levels of medical knowledge can benefit.

8. Alternative medicine

Apart from the allopathic treatments, patients are also exploring traditional treatments such as acupressure, Ayurveda, and homeopathy. Alternative medical treatments are rising as they promote a treatment that comes with fewer side effects as compared to allopathy. According to Grand View Research, alternative medical treatments are expected to rise with a compounded annual growth rate of 22.03%. So it’s a new field where businesses can invest.

9. Medical tourism

Medical treatment costs are rising at a great rate, and that’s why we see patients from the United States and Europe flying to the East to get treated at a lower cost. Startups can focus on providing tailored international plans for patients and their family members to travel across the nation. The plans are customizable and can include accommodation, travel, and even treatment costs. The startups would need to partner with healthcare providers and tourism companies to build a sustainable ecosystem around it.

10. Home healthcare facility

Home healthcare refers to providing services to patients who have a chronic disease and need medical assistance at home to make them feel better. Even elderly people might need such services to keep them healthy. Businesses can focus on setting up portals through which these services can be requested at the convenience of customers. Patients might need nurses, therapists, chemists, medical test services, and other professionals in their homes.
