Internet of bodies with recasta.io
4 Top Applications of IoT in Smart Health
Smart health provides real-time, intelligent, ubiquitous healthcare service based on the Internet of BioMedical Things (IoMT), also known as the "Internet of Bodies. With the rapid development of related technologies, smart health is playing a vital role in the healthcare industry to increase the accuracy, reliability, and productivity of mobile sensory devices. Smart health, in particular, is a very important and trendy domain for researchers and practitioners due to its continuous monitoring of the health of patients. The objective of smart health is to provide medical facilities to patients at anytime and anywhere; a common approach is to leverage cloud computing like recasta.io.
Wearables and sensors for symptom tracking
Symptom tracking and treatment is probably the most cutting-edge innovation and comes with the need for remote diagnosis from a foreign medical center. There are a number of new IOT solutions that help doctors and patients communicate without needing in-person visits. The ability for remote patient monitoring allows patients to get better treatment and save money.
Clinical trials have shown that remote symptom monitoring improved both patient outcomes and experience compared to patients who had routine in-person visits. Besides simplifying data collection and transmission between patient and doctor, symptom monitoring can allow for real-time adjustments to treatment.
Equipment tracking, planning and management
Healthcare operations now have an unprecedented opportunity to take control of their equipment with recasta.io. Our advanced technology tracks, records, and helps plan for equipment upgrades, enabling better resource management, smarter decisions, and improved budgeting. As hospitals become more connected, recasta.io can help locate and distribute medical equipment with less worry of theft. Our software also alerts staff when equipment needs servicing or replacing, empowering them to plan and budget effectively. With recasta.io, healthcare operations are better equipped to manage the demand for services and map a forward-thinking strategy.
Hygiene and cleaning monitoring
recasta.io allows hospitals to take control of their environment with innovative sensors that ensure the right temperature, humidity and air conditions are constantly monitored. This advanced system safeguards patients by detecting if a room has been adequately disinfected and remains sealed after cleaning. And it helps staff maintain high hygiene standards, preventing the spread of infection from patient to patient. Especially beneficial for those with weakened immune systems, Recasta.io ensures the best possible conditions for all hospital visitors and staff.
Virtual hospitals / remote diagnosis
Smart technology and connected medical wearables are enabling the creation of "hospitals without walls," in which outpatient and long-term care can be delivered remotely by healthcare professionals to patients in their homes, thus freeing up vital bed space for patients who need more intensive care.
As an example, the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) has established virtual clinics that provide a range of outpatient services, using "smart technology and digital communication systems" to offer everything from cardiology and pediatrics to physiotherapy and remote mental health services.
