Hospital innovations encompass a variety of measures in the areas of technology, smartphone connectivity, architecture and design that enable hospitals to optimize their operations whilst improving the quality of service delivery to patients.

Interestingly, a lot of hospital innovations reside outside the physical setting of the hospital itself but ultimately help to improve work flow in hospitals whilst enhancing the quality and quantity of hospital services. Examples of these include remote doctor consultations, diagnostic gadgets and medication-monitoring apps.

With medical technology improving at a rapid rate, modern hospital innovations tend to focus on technological innovations that can reduce the burden on human doctors, mitigate human error and improve productivity of hospital personnel, with the patient being the ultimate beneficiary.
