How The Internet Of Things is Impacting The Healthcare Industry

Being everywhere from retail to smartphones, IoT is now creating an impact in the healthcare industry.

Franchisors are using IoT in the healthcare industry for on-time patient care, reducing the cost of treatments, making it more effective. From health and wellness management with smartwatches to post-cancer care, IoT is impacting the industry from all directions.

Here are some ways IoT is impacting the healthcare industry:

Real-Time Remote Monitoring

With IoT, wellness franchisors can connect multiple monitoring devices, enabling real-time monitoring of patients. In addition, franchisors can help transmit signals from home, thus reducing the time needed for patient care in the hospitals.

It helps in reducing the time of doctors, increasing the level of care provided at that moment.

Smart Pills

Among numerous innovations happening in the industry, several brands are working on Smart Pills which is grabbing attention. They are meant to aid in monitoring health issues, medication controls, and adherence. These pills will dissolve in the stomach, transmitting a signal to the sensor worn on the body.

These signals will then be transferred to mobile phones for the patient’s easy access.

Diabetes Management

Diabetes management is another sector where IoT is creating an impact. Though the technology is still to come in limelight, experiments are going on where a Raspberry Pi computer deciphers the data transmitted from the continuous glucose monitor. It would be controlling the pump to put the required amount of insulin into the blood.

The system will be using a 90-day sensor placed under the patient’s skin. Monitoring and sending signals about the blood glucose level will be carried by the smart transmitter to the mobile.
