Why is IoT technology important in healthcare?

Healthcare, today, is not limited to a doctor’s visit in person, telephonic and text communications. The expensive clinical trials require constant patient-physician interaction as the effects of these drugs on patients are closely monitored throughout the study period.

Inevitably, this industry is rapidly adopting next-gen technologies to meet the ever-increasing healthcare demands with remote, improved, and real-time capabilities. The IoT applications have been deployed successfully to keep both healthcare workers and patients safe while ensuring remote and continuous care to critical patients with real-time monitoring and alerts. It maintains the continuity and integrity of the insights enabled by IoT devices collected from the clinical trials that assume massive importance in deciding outcomes. The IoT technology in healthcare not only benefits the patients and physicians, but also hospitals and insurance companies in terms of timely decisions and cost savings.
