Patient communication and engagement are often a concern in the medical industry. Medical IoT resolves this issue and allows doctors to communicate with patients better. Health IoT enables healthcare providers to monitor the health of patients on a real-time basis and treat them accordingly. Internet of Things (IoT)-supported devices simplify remote monitoring in the healthcare sector, track patient health, and enable physicians to deliver quality care. OSP can build healthcare internet of things solutions to improve patient-provider communication. Our custom medical internet of things solutions allow the reduction of hospital stay and avoid patient re-admissions. OSP has a sound knowledge of IoT and healthcare systems, and we can help you with better patient outcomes and care services.
Aggregation of health data from varied sources does not reach the centralized EHR system and is therefore, not easily available to providers. Hence the information gets limited.
The information captured by the patient stays within the boundaries of each system and is not visible to other systems, if there is improper interoperability among the IoT vendors.
All providers support the meaningful patient data between the visits, but this data becomes specific only if it is integrated and viewed within the setting of a patient’s health record. For this purpose, medical IoT plays a major role.
Due to lack of common security HIPAA standards, there is a great risk associated with data meddling and breaches. Hence, FDA has defined security standards for IoT medical devices.
To capture different health data provided by their respective providers, more than one sensor along with a hub is needed. Due to lack of common IoT enabled hardware or wireless connectivity standards, hubs remain incompatible with the sensors and the patients need to utilize costly extensive hardware.
Collection of huge data, with varied communication protocols, complicate the process of identifying the useful information for physicians. It also hinders decision-making quality.
OSP has worked with Stephen to create a mobile health application offering 'Doctor on Demand'. This mhealth solution is based on the Uber model to enhance the availability of health access in the US.
