Medical infrastructures are getting more and more complex, creating a demand for health care IT monitoring solutions than ensure perfect functioning of the devices, and their connection to the classical IT. We cover everything there is available on the markets for Health Care IT monitoring solutions, best practices, tools and vendors.
The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly accelerated the practice of telemedicine worldwide. In countries where medical associations were fighting to bar remote patient care based on the dangers of incomplete clinical diagnosis, the need for social distance and the fear attending clinics and hospitals were the last straw to bring down that barrier.This movement has quickly consolidated some basic technological tools, such as electronic medicine and exams prescriptions – validated by digital certificates and a wide connection with pharmaceutical and laboratory systems –, and the remote collection of physiological data, by means of several types of devices, including fitness wearables.
The future looks bright for the use of IoT in Healthcare. The global portable and remote patient monitoring market alone is expected to reach $43 billion by 2027. The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated this scenario. According to IDC, by the end of this year, seven of the top ten wrist wearables companies will have launched algorithms capable of early detection of potential signs of infectious diseases.Although the healthcare sector has taken longer to adopt Internet of Things technologies than other industries, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is now at the heart of the digital healthcare ecosystem.
