Healthcare and IoT
The rise of the Internet of Things (IoT)has resulted in some exciting advancements in the 21st century and still bringing in more results. Although it’s often associated with manufacturing, housing and smart factories and networks of the future, the IoT is not restricted to these facets. It’s brought about some significant developments in the healthcare and medical sectors, too, including;
- Reducing Emergency Room Wait Times all Thanks to some recent ingenuity and the IoT, at least one hospital — Mt. Sinai Medical Center in New York City — effectively slashed wait times for 50% of their emergency room patients who need inpatient care.
- Remote health and monitoring.
- Since Modern hospitals require next-gen software and hardware to function, some are even used to save or sustain human life. Like all electronic devices, this equipment is prone to numerous risks from power outages to system failures that could be a matter of life or death. A new IoT-driven solution from Philips, called e-Alert, aims to solve that problem making sure that these hospitals have access to critical hardware and software that enables virtual monitoring of the hospital.
- It has also helped in tracking staff and patient inventory
- Enables drug enhancement.
IOT has affected the degree at which hospitality and care is being rendered in the hospital, with this surge, we can only expect more and better.
