Incorporating technology in patient monitoring helps assist healthcare professionals in the early detection of the issues and automate the monitoring process.
FREMONT, CA: Patient monitoring has progressed from ad hoc to continuous monitoring of various criteria, resulting in an explosion of unprocessed and unorganized data available to clinicians for decision-making. Clinicians are in high demand in today's dynamic healthcare world.
Patient monitoring systems are currently being developed to assist clinicians in making informed decisions, reducing variation in care delivery, and lowering costs. Data-crunching is just starting to integrate technology that hospitals and healthcare providers need to be ready for if they hope to reap the benefits of rapidly evolving patient monitoring technology.
As healthcare services strive to control chronic conditions and population health, wearables and embedded biosensors like continuous glucose monitoring, blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters, and ECG monitors will be the first areas to focus on.
The following are some recent advancements in patient monitoring systems:
Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) or Telehealth is a method of ambulatory healthcare that allows patients and medical professionals to monitor vital signs and examine data in real-time using mobile medical devices.
Telemonitoring services are based on information communication technologies to provide healthcare services remotely, are rapidly expanding. Telemonitoring systems are infiltrating modern healthcare institutions in various ways.
Remote medical diagnosis and monitoring systems based on mobile health systems can dramatically decrease healthcare expenses and improve performance management, especially in managing chronic diseases.
Patient Health Monitoring Platforms Incorporating IOT Smart Devices:
The concept of "smart health" emerged from the synergistic integration of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, and big data technologies in healthcare. Smart health is a new word that applies to delivering a wide range of healthcare services, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up management, at any time and in any location by combining information technology and healthcare.
Increasing Role of IoT in Remote Monitoring
Today's medical devices keep track of a wide range of patient behaviors and conditions (for example, glucose monitors, fetal monitors, electrocardiograms, and blood pressure monitors). Even though patients still need to see their doctors regularly, the smarter monitoring devices of the future can change that. Recent advances in micro or nanofabrication, versatile and stretchable usable materials, and wireless communications have resulted in wearable electrochemical sensors with appealing and versatile abilities.
