The world is talking a lot about IoT – about its role in changing every field including healthcare industry. It can be game changer for healthcare industry by increasing efficiency, decreasing costs, and more. Almost all of us want personal care when it comes to health.
Let’s have a look, how IoT can change healthcare industry:
1. Reduced Cost:
When hospitals use sensor devices, which lead to few checkups and unnecessary appointments, all this will reduce cost.
2. Better care:
IoT enabled devices can help to see data remotely like electrocardiographs, fetal monitors, and more. When information like heart rates, temperatures and glucose levels are transmitted in real time through wearable devices, hospital industry can operate more easily.
3. Empowered patients:
Future of IoT powered healthcare can allow patients to medical advice from experts in the comfort of their home. Telehealth applications can allow doctors to access without waiting rooms.
No doubt that relationship between IoT and health care industry is promising, but there are some challenges. Let’s have a look:
1. Mobile hesitation:
Devices are half of IoT, and if provider hesitates during patient data handling process, then care can suffer.
Security is main concern as financial information attracts many hackers. So, healthcare industry should security on top of mind.
In the ending note, though there are many obstacles but still IoT exist in medial industry to some extent. Hope to see more innovative devices in healthcare industry.
