IoT Solutions Fostering Smart Hospitals & Patient Care

Do you know that a global study reports that, by the end of 2021, 94% of businesses are estimated to be using IoT? Businesses are jumping onto the bandwagon of IoT. By the end of 2021, 94% of them are estimated to be using the technology. 

The “Internet of Things” or IoT is a remarkable technology that has transformed over a billion lives already. IoT is about embedding intelligence to the devices and processes to make them smarter and provide us with endless benefits.- for better productivity, lower operational costs, provide real-time data, save time, and the list of benefits goes on.

Google reports that there are expected to be more than 64 billion IoT devices worldwide by 2025.

IoT in Healthcare Industry

A lot of IoT-based solutions are developed and deployed in various industries. And to an honest note, the healthcare industry has also been under this magnificent transformation. IoT (Internet of Things) based healthcare solutions can now solve the matter for patients affected by heart diseases. It provides healthcare services that supported the patients’ physical status without taking their feelings into consideration.

The IoT technology has been adopted into the healthcare system for gathering ECG signals to diagnose the condition of patients with heart issues. The noises that come with the real data from ECG signals make increase the chances that the diagnosis remains not accurate. Leveraging the technologies, that situation has been resolved to a certain extent which helps the diagnosis centers to process the real data, in other words, the quality and real ECG signals.

The overall aim is to develop an expert healthcare mobility solution and system using IoT technology in order that data are often collected in real-time and transmitted to the cloud for analysis. this may help patients to detect their possible heart diseases before seeing their doctors. Also, it’ll support physicians to perform treatment for his or her patients.

Let us see briefly how the Internet of Things helps in providing much-needed solutions like remote patient care, optimizing operations and processes, and streamlining the management of quality and useful data. Before that see what the smart health concept is all about.

What is the Smart Health Concept?

A smart healthcare system is a new form of healthcare, that is based on the digitalization of services held as eHealth and mHealth services, electronic record management, smart home services, and intelligent and connected medical devices leveraging high technologies mainly IoT, big data, cloud computing, artificial intelligence, Augmented reality, Virtual reality, and Communication Technologies (ICT)

The main benefits are :

  • improve the quality of healthcare
  • Minimize risks
  • Provide Better diagnostic tools
  • Assist patient recovery
  • Minimize physical presence in hospitals
  • Assist the elders

Remote Patient Care

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is a digital solution based on multiple technologies aiming to collect medical and other types of health data. This data is collected from different devices and stored in the cloud to be used remotely and securely. The data is used to give better decision-making possibilities and speed up remote assistance in patient recovery and make further decisions. The main benefit is time-saving as the doctors or patients do not need to travel unless it is very much necessary.

With the concept of connected devices, remote patient care helps doctors and patients to purchase/set up remote equipment. This allows doctors to measure biometrics and provide full care to their patients. 

Smart Hospital Operations Optimization

the use of information and communication technology (ICT) and connected devices to advise patients, conduct research, educate the health workforce, spread awareness about different symptoms, diseases, and monitoring public health. Many hospital operations use IoT sensors that in the form of wearable devices that are placed on the patients, for example, wristbands. There are many devices available in the market that helps real-time tracking of patients through different areas of the hospital.

IoT technology also fosters asset tracking. Hospital asset tracking is an effective digital solution enabling the management of the hospital closely from monitoring available equipment track supplies. A lot of digital solutions can be developed and implemented in a smart healthcare ecosystem when various technologies like custom mobile app development, AI & ML, website development, etc. are integrated with IoT. Various mobility solutions like the accessibility of critical expensive business and clinical systems, book appointments, check availability of doctors for home visits, ambulance telemetry, telemedicine, and smart inventory management can be incorporated as per the healthcare institutions’ requirements.

Streamlining Data Management

IoT is making it easy through machine learning and tongue processing. IoT-enabled technologies will not involve unstructured data but useful and insightful data systems. Heart diagnoses are often achieved at an early stage and accurately. Using smartphones and sensor-based wearable technology allows the user to watch symptoms. By watching health conditions like disorders it becomes easier to research and diagnose.

Platforms like EHRs, telemedicine, and patient portals are used widely within the digital age. But IoT powered web and mobile apps have made an enormous impact in providing personalized healthcare.

IoT Enhancing Lives Globally!! A Beautiful Dream

It is secondary if IoT solutions provide precise information to the end-users or not. However, research is still ongoing in various parts of the world. But the thing is, quality healthcare services access is the right of everyone that is living. People in rural areas who do not have access to doctors are blessed by IoT-powered solutions for healthcare.
