IoT and Its Role in Revolutionizing the Field of Healthcare

With the evolution of IoT in healthcare, this technology will improve efficiency and completely transform patients care.

Whilst the paradigm of smart homes and the part Internet of Things (IoT) plays in them is quite well known, what hasn’t received quite so much press coverage is the revolution that is happening right now in the healthcare sector due to what IoT technology makes possible.

This crossover from home to healthcare is good not just for the patients whose lives the technology makes both easier and more comfortable, but also for the technology itself. The reason being that there has been a significant boost in research and development funding from the healthcare industry who see it as a viable way to advance healthcare techniques and improve efficiency.

Many Applications

Such is the flexible nature of IoT technology that it has a number of applications in the field of healthcare, which not only reduces the need for manpower, but also allows patients to be better cared for. We look now at just a few of the amazing ways IoT technology is being used to look after us when we’re not at our best.

Healthcare Robots

Sounding like something from a ‘Lost in Space’ movie, healthcare robots are not fictional, in fact they exist, albeit in the early stages of development. What is more established in a real world scenario is the concept of surgical robots that allow complex surgery to be conducted remotely. Referred to as ‘telemanipulator’ technology, it allows for delicate surgical procedures to be completed when the surgeon in question is not in attendance, as it is able to closely replicate the surgeon’s actions over the internet.

Patient Tracking

Able to be used either in a hospital or home setting, wearable patient trackers are a variety of IoT technology that can perform a range of different, but equally useful functions. Doctors are able to not just track where their patients are using IoT devices, but can also send advice and recommendations to them via hardware usually worn on the wrist.

This technology can also represent something of a lifesaver, as the devices can be remotely interrogated for patient information relating to overall health. Someone who is complaining of a certain set of symptoms can be treated that much quicker with more data instantly available to the Doctor, potentially averting more serious complications that result from a delay in being seen.

Surgical HUD Technology

Although the commercial performance of Google Glasses technology is far from what the company desired upon its release in 2012, the concept has enjoyed much greater success in the manufacturing and medical niches. What the technology is able to do for surgeons for example, is to allow them to see patient data, such as CT scans and other related information through a head worn visor, allowing for a much more fluid and efficient surgical process.

In Conclusion

The Internet of Things is only just beginning to make its mark on the way we use technology in our day to day lives. It only seems to be a matter of time until the features of IoT are enjoyed across every facet of industry and in every home across the world. The revolution it is helping to create in healthcare is just one example of this and the technology we have spoken about here is just a fraction of what is currently available.
