The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interconnected devices, objects, or people that enables the transfer of data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.
The use of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the healthcare domain allows the patient to visualize their data, upload it to their cloud, keep a record to be retrieved for analysis by the medical personnel when needed.
Intelligent devices such as the Bluetooth Non-contact Thermometer: SIFTHERMO-2.22B, the Fingertip Pulse Oximeter Bluetooth SPO2/PR Oxygen Monitor OLED Display SIFOXI-1.1B, the Tubeless Upper Arm Blood Pressure Monitor SIFBPM-3.5, and the FDA Bluetooth Glucose Monitor SIFGLUCO-3.5 allow the user to be monitored from their homes especially for the most vulnerable patients who do not need to leave their homes and go to the hospital for routine visits which can be conducted remotely.
Either it is the body temperature, the oxygen level in the blood, the body pressure, or even the glucose level can now be measured through our intelligent devices SIFTHERMO-2.22B, SIFOXI-1.1B, SIFBPM-3.5, and SIFGLUCO-3.5.
All of the devices mentioned above can be connected to an Android App. Which generates data and makes it reachable by the healthcare provider.
Remote patient monitoring mainly promotes patient comfort, but also patient safety. Staying at home during a global pandemic is highly recommended especially for elderly and vulnerable patients.
The fact that healthcare providers can telemonitor chronic patients without being exposed to the risk of infection with the new COVID-19 is a huge relief.
In addition to that, remote patient monitoring reduces costs since there is less traveling involved for patients, acts as an early warning if there is something alarming in the data and thus avoid costly, unnecessary, and dramatic emergency admission to the hospital, and is less time consuming for healthcare providers.
