Healthcare and IoT

by Raghu B on October 5, 2015

Healthcare has come a long way regarding new treatments and procedures.

The next move in healthcare will involve the use of new and cutting edge technology such as IoT (Internet of Things). Let’s see how IoT can change healthcare and its impact on providing quality care.

Chronic Illnesses

Chronic illnesses include such things as high blood pressure, diabetes, and other conditions that require consistent monitoring. These conditions, while not fatal, must be constantly monitored.

Many people suffer from chronic ailments and many of them are non-compliant. This includes things like not taking medication on time, not taking medication consistently, or using the wrong dosage for medication. It can also include taking medication incorrectly, taking medication along with other medication causing side effects, not getting refills on time and/or not measuring readings for blood sugar or blood pressure.

Many patients fall into this scenario and become non-compliant. This results in significant damage and leads to deterioration of their health. More often than not, many of these situations result in the patient’s death.

What impact does IoT(Internet of Things) have?

IoT can be an excellent weapon for providing good, preventative healthcare for many conditions. It can support patients and their caregivers with cutting edge technology. Here are a few examples where IoT can make a difference:

  • Medication Distributing Kiosk: Patients can fill a kiosk with the pills they take very day. As the kiosk dispenses the pills, it keeps a record. When their medication is not dispensed at a certian time, it can alert the patient via a mobile device. This can prevent a missed dosage. Also such a kiosk can avoid problems like taking the wrong dosage or pills incorrectly
  • Alzheimer’s Disease: Alzheimer’s patients lose their memory over time. Many caregivers have difficulty monitoring Alzheimer’s patients because they wander off. Numerous Alzheimer’s patients wander off on their own and get lost. Let’s consider IoT(Internet of Things). One can place a beacon in the form of a bracelet on a patient’s wrist. Then, they can form a perimeter around the home or healthcare facility to detect if the perimeter is breached. If breached, an alert is sent to a caregiver to warn them that there is an issue. This process/solution can avoid a life-threatening event. Such notifications can be delivered to a mobile device by sending an SMS message or sounding and alarm.

These are just some of the ways how Internet of Things can make a difference in the healthcare. In either option, the remote devices are integrated to an IoT platform that monitors all events. This platform provides real time analytics and notifications. Such a program requires a well - designed and comprehensive system similar to what NetObjex offers. You should check it out!!
