The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a pervasive force in business because it offers more and more ways to connect and share data, as well as the operational benefits that come with them. As a way to connect any person with any device in almost any location, it’s a great idea for medicine, where healthcare IoT and remote patient monitoring (RPM) are developing together to change the very idea of care.
RPM is based on the process of capturing and monitoring data on devices connected to the same network. It is meant to deliver care through a series of home-based devices that are all connected to each other. And thanks to things like smart sensor technology, healthcare facilities can now not only collect and access a wide range of data but also use that data right away to give the best care possible while cutting down on wasteful costs.
How does the beginning of IoT patient monitoring help improve care and outcomes in the big picture?
With easy and almost instant communication made possible by remote care, practices can switch to a more automated scheduling system that skips in-person appointments without reducing the amount of time the doctor and patient spend together.
IoT healthcare can also help make healthcare more timely, which can lead to earlier intervention. Continuous monitoring can be the difference between life and death, especially in more serious medical situations where time is of the essence.
Another important result of healthcare IoT is accuracy, which can improve both efficiency and early intervention. Connecting all devices and alerts to the same high-tech GPS network not only gives the chance of early help for patients with conditions that have been flagged, but also lets rescue teams respond faster and with more clarity in emergency situations. This is especially helpful for patients who live in rural or remote areas.
Patient monitoring not only improves physical safety by giving better tools for preventing falls, but it also improves digital safety by giving access to a highly secure network where health information about patients can be found.
LifeSigns’ Intelligent Monitoring System can monitor multiple parameters of several patients continuously. It proves to be a One-Stop solution for Multi-Patient Multi-Parameter monitoring in India. The iMS biosensor accurately measures 2 channel ECG, SPo2, BP, HR, body temperature, and RR. The future of healthcare is wireless and digital, and LifeSigns envisions leading the industry in bringing forth technology solutions for improved outcomes across the board.
