Optimizing Healthcare with IoT
IoT is constantly offering new tools and efficiencies for an integrated healthcare system that can ensure better patient care reduced health care costs and improved treatment outcomes. Instead of thinking about implementing Internet of Things, organizations need to rethink a strategic path to business transformation that will reap the highest benefits. There are two major paths to this digital transformation—optimizing existing business processes or completely changing the business processes.
Most Promising Emerging Technologies in the Healthcare IoT
The healthcare industry has witnessed tremendous growth in wearables, telemedicine, and smart room technologies, all aimed at providing care outside institutions and improving the care and safety of the senior citizens.
Wearables will soon increase its range of form factors—from wrists to shoes to clothing—for having the ability to measure and send medical information on the go. mHealth/ telemedicine is also moving from being just a collector of data to an active aggregator of real-time data for on-the-spot evaluation.
Smart rooms are being developed with a promise to reduce the financial pressure while improving the overall patient experience. The rapid development of technologies involving artificial intelligence and natural language processing will also have an immense impact on the quality and delivery of care.
Opportunities for Optimizing Healthcare Delivery
You cannot optimize a process that cannot be measured, and all processes in healthcare are now measurable. Also, the modernization and automation of building systems, a real-time location system, and logistics management optimization have now uncovered many ways to reduce operational costs.
