ABSTRACT:
Health care is a rapid growing market and the applications of automated health care systems are reviewed in the paper. The paper also provides information about the demand and implementation of such technology in various sectors of medical and pharmaceutical industry like lab automation, hospital management, nanomedicine and human genome project. The effect of the regulatory, ethical and quality context in the implementation of new technologies are explained to highlight the standardizations to be adhered in this sector in comparison to any other domain. The paper also highlights the current practices healthcare automation like Robot surgeries and Pharmacy Automation system. The application of Industrial engineering concepts are also reviewed focusing on application of Lean management system, Six Sigma, Simulation and Modeling techniques in healthcare to improve overall efficiency, system performance and achieve better customer satisfaction.
