The growing demand for IoT medical devices is being driven by the need to improve healthcare delivery, patient engagement, patients’ access to their data, and a necessity to remotely monitor patients. Remote monitoring, which provides healthcare information in real-time, allows doctors and hospitals to take pre-emptive action and reduce hospitalization rates thanks to analytics solutions available with the Internet of Things application. A major class of IoT devices for health monitoring is wearable devices, which provide personalized healthcare information, enabling constant tracking. Since its launch, the technology has been adopted by many hospitals and embodied in different medical equipment to benefit patients by better access to health data generated and notifications sent to family members.
IoT devices and other wirelessly connected devices work on embedded systems with high-speed processors, rich operating systems, and a touchscreen interface. They can collect and store patient data on blood pressure and health conditions, and can automatically transfer this information to healthcare providers. Moreover, health monitoring devices can also be used as diagnostic tools for disease diagnosis and help monitor patient compliance. These redefining healthcare devices based on Internet of Things technology can change environmental monitoring, and health monitoring completely.
TEKTELIC company also has a range of IoT devices for healthcare. For example, TEKTELIC has successfully incorporated its KONA Micro IoT Gateway to continuously and remotely monitor dementia patients through a smart band. These Internet of Things devices are redefining healthcare, making it more comfortable and effective.
At the same time, Internet of Things in healthcare is not limited to devices that monitor blood pressure or other vital indications. Smart technology can be used for monitoring equipment, assets, or medications. For example, the TEKTELIC TUNDRA was successfully used for maintaining optimal and consistent temperatures within refrigerated trucks during vaccine transfer. Applying the Internet of Things healthcare technology, you not only improve patients’ experience but also optimize working processes.
