The conglomerate of healthcare with IoT, checks all the options that relate to cost-effectiveness, patient monitoring, capturing digital medical data, automated medical systems, expanded doctor’s reach and many more. Let’s take a look at where they provide an edge in the medical world.
1. Patient Monitoring
Personal wearable fitness gadgets are the talk of the town these days. These IoT devices are capable of monitoring a vast range of health related activities, including heart rhythms, blood pressure, footsteps, physical position and quality of sleep, to name just a few.
2. Digital Medical Data Capturing
In the course of their stay, it’s often noticed that patients are hooked with number of medical devices and equipment such as heart monitors, Inter-Venuses, respirators and blood pumps. Manually recording of information from these devices has been a time-consuming and error-prone task for the nurses. In an IoT world, electronic health record (EHR) systems are used to transmit data of each patient automatically; this increases the accuracy hence allowing nurses to spend more time providing care.
3. Constant doctor’s watch from anywhere
With the advancements in live streaming video calls, biomedical technology and
