IoT with smart healthcare solutions enables healthcare units to achieve improved care for patients by the providers. It allows driving better asset utilization, new revenues, and reduced costs. In addition, it has the potential to change, enhance and improve the services delivered by healthcare units.
IoT in healthcare technologies is known as IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) universally, that is one of the major technological innovation and modernization which has added the element of “digital smartness” in the healthcare industry. Along with identifying, monitoring, and informing caregivers about the patient’s vitals, it also provides a precise insight on the critical data to the health care providers so that issues can be identified at an early stage leading to better delivery of care services.
As smart connected devices gain popularity, Big Data has made inroads in the smart healthcare system. There has been a steady rise in the demand for M2M and M2H communication so as to sort and categorize an enormous volume of medical data.
With Google developing machine learning algorithm to identify cancerous tumors on mammograms, to the Stanford University using deep learning algorithm for diagnosing skin cancer, the application of machine learning in the healthcare system has opened up new avenues and opportunities in the smart healthcare market. Personalized care has been a trademark of smart healthcare solutions, which can easily be obtained and delivered through machine learning. Machine learning enables major stakeholders in the healthcare industry to gain advantage and speeds up the care delivery curve particularly, in maintaining smart electronic health records.
After Big Data, cloud computing technology is the next big thing that has made healthcare technologies way smarter. Technically, cloud computing technology assures cost savings, scalability, and system flexibility. Hence, with the amplified use of cloud-assisted medical collaboration, the demand for cloud computed healthcare solutions has grown exponentially.
Additionally, cloud computing technology has made it easier for even small hospitals to gain access to information and store important data in a cost-effective manner, without any hassle. Therefore, these hospitals can now deliver the best services to their patients, with the t pressure on cutting down the costs, ensuring quality medical services for all.
