Hello readers! Hope you are staying well! Here we are back with another new blog based on the importance of IoT and Telemedicine.
As far as we are changing our lifestyles, healthcare’s continuous use in healthcare is on the latest trend now; now, with the IoT( internet of thing), it is easy to maintain all the healthcare records and easily track patient reports. Thus most of you also aware of telemedicine; this is also a part of IoT. The utilization of IoT in medical services precisely increased across the world during covid 19 pandemics.
However, continuous innovations in IoT improve healthcare services and serve more accurately than non- digitalized. But it also enhances the same time, healthcare such as telemonitoring, remote monitoring. It reduces human errors while caring for the patient. IoT provides the ease of access to information and treatment as some hospitals started using intelligent hospital beds or hospital cot, allowing patients to adjust as per their comfortability with physical movement. Besides, it also decreases hospital burden.
What Is IoT?
IoT( Internet of things) connects the physical world with the internet. Also, it enables the use of the internet, monitoring machines, and digital machines to serve their specialized function in the healthcare sector without the inventions of human beings. IoT allows patients not to be dependent on the hospital wardens to measure the status of their health.
The Benefits Of IoT In Healthcare
Reduces chances of Human Errors
With IoT machines, pause the omission of doctors and help with diagnosis also reduces the possibility of medical errors.
When an IoT consolidates with hospitals, it can escalate the speed and effectiveness of the routine process. At the same time, staff and doctors spend too much time performing tasks that can be automated.
Digital machines improve the control over the patient and increase the percentage of saving patient life with so much IoT equipment.
Sometimes, it can be hard to help a patient when he is in severe need of medication because doctors sometimes busy manage patients’ documents and historical records. IoT removes the hurdles when patients need real-time monitoring. It also enables so many services of remote care such as.
- Body Temperature level
- Air quality index
- Measurement of Blood sugar
- Measurement of Blood pressure
- Heart rate
With the help of IoT in medicine, finding the cause of diseases becomes more accessible and quick at an early stage. Our doctors can start the treatment at the initial stages and can also help to reduce the mortality rates.
What are some Common Issues Of IoT In Telemedicine?
While we are discussing IoT in telemedicine, think only about beneficial points and forget issues of the IoT. This is also a fact that the excellent availability of the Internet and other technologies are only limited to cities; there are so many rural places where the internet is not available. Let’s have a look at some of those concerns of IoT telemedicine.
It increases the manipulation of people’s personal data, also attracts hackers and robbers to access important information and data. This is not good for your medical facility.
No Industry Standards
Currently, so many industries build IoT robots and software. But they have no adequate and reliable security standards. Only big companies like Panasonic, Google, etc., are providing satisfying, secure standards.
Too Much Data
Using IoT in medical services generate so much data, and it quickly is hacked. Someone can use it for their benefit.
Internet Of Things Enables Robotics In Healthcare
Over the last few decades, Robotics is considered one of the emerging industries in the aspects of challenging innovation and artificial intelligence. Suddenly outbreak of demand for intelligent medical equipment. Thus this industry enters to provide fabulous services and diminish Human error while diagnosing the patient. Now Healthcare sector shows its interest in to use of robots in medicine. Even some hospitals deploy Robo for trial to analyze the working module.
Suddenly Boom in the robotics of the medical industry provides support to decreases the burden of doctors. Robots are assigned with tasks of checking records of B.P level, Sugar levels, Oxygen levels. Even some advanced robots help in surgical operations.
Digitalizing medical services is also a challenging factor for all the doctors and individuals to their day-to-day activities. There are many benefits of the IoT, but the infrastructure should be flexible in accepting and advanced.
Today IoT builds a protective and active healthcare system that offers only intelligent devices. It also ensures the security of patient data. Smart care enables the catch the symptoms quickly and medicate at the time. This is beneficial for both doctor and patience as it decreases stress while diagnosing symptoms. It also offers to doctors that they can see records of patient cases and history.
