We often hear people talking about the danger of technology, and in the LIAN team we all have clear thoughts for this one:
“Technology is a tool which can be used for multiple purposes”.
Now if we think of technology being used for healthcare. The general impact is undoubtedly positive.
Recently, in the open space of LIAN Group headquarters, we came across an enlightening article discussing how digital health tools can significantly enhance efficiency and accessibility in health systems, particularly in African countries. We started divagating about AI-powered diagnostics, digital health tools, and the enormous potential of health technology or HealthTech. We talked about the impact of healthtech in big topics like controling Disaster Responses, Environmental Impact, or Reducing Medical Errors, but also on smaller topics, details that can make a difference such as a efficiency, cost reduction, streamlined workflows, quality assurance through digital tools, treatment personalization using data analytics…
It is just “that simple”. Overall improved patient care benefiting from digital support.
At LIAN, we’re not just passionate about innovative ideas; we are builders.
We believe in turning ideas into reality. One at a time.
Of course, not all the global healthcare systems are accessible for us, and we are very aware that some innovations in healthcare will still take time. But when we recognized the pressing need for a more modern healthcare ecosystem in Switzerland, particularly in the dentistry industry, we couldn’t resist the opportunity to make a difference.
Challenges in the Swiss Healthcare Industry
The healthcare industry in Switzerland is undoubtedly top-notch when it comes to medical expertise. However, like any system, it has its own challenges.
Swiss dentists, for example, find themselves entangled in time-consuming and repetitive administrative processes. These tasks divert their focus from their primary duty, which is providing the most qualitative dental care. We found out that since 2012, the time spent on these secondary tasks has increased by an average of 55%, equating to nearly a full day each week lost to administrative work for the average dentist. These challenges put a strain on dental teams and can impact the overall income potential of their practices.
