The amount of connected devices will be growing high by 2020. It can be seen by how Internet of Things is a major solution in almost everything.
I wrote about some use cases for Internet of Things for finance, hotel. and public transportation. But the use case of Internet of Things in Medical Industry is as much as interesting as other use cases.
Here are what Internet of Things can do in Medical Industry:
1. Hospital Equipment Tracking
Problem in hospitals are similar. Lots of patients and many equipment being used that sometimes lost without track. By putting a sensor on every equipment hospital staff will be able to track their hospital equipment and prevent the lost. Hospital management can also see who’s using the equipment by their latest check in.
2. Fast Respond for Patient
Emergency situation and connected device can work together and ease access to help patient. With connected device that will detect patient’s condition and help doctor decide the next step for patient.
Some patients also seem to be responding positively to the use of remote diagnostics. In a Liverpool, U.K. study of more than 2,700 people suffering from chronic diseases, 90 percent of patients said they felt more in control of their condition and better able to cope.
3. Visitor Tracker
Hospital only allows visitor to come in certain time. It is important for patient to keep rest for full recovery. The visitor tracker comes to manage visitor that usually “won’t leave” even if the visit time is over. Common problem in south east Asia. The tracker will see where the visitor is and it works as their ID to prevent them visit in a rest time for patients.
Cubeacon card is suitable tracker for visitor. With iBeacon technology, the card can be used as a tracker and able to show a real time microlocation. A simple device that can be keep everywhere without having to take many space.
With reader placed around the hospital, their management can see each visitors and the time. An easy implementation to help hospital management increase their service for patient.
With Battery lasts up to 1 year, hospital management doesn’t have to be worry about the cost since it lasts longer and of course, tracking visitor is easier with real time analytic in our backend. Trial our free features t our backend here!
