- Healthcare services are costlier than ever,
- global population is aging, and
- the number of chronic diseases is on a rise.
What we are approaching is a world where basic healthcare would become out of reach to most people, a large section of society would go unproductive owing to old age and people would be more prone to chronic disease.
While technology cannot stop the population from ageing or eradicate chronic diseases at once, it can at least make healthcare easier on a pocket and in term of accessibility.
Technology can move the routines of medical checks from a hospital (hospital-centric) to the patient’s home (home-centric). The solution – IoT! The IoT device collects and transfers health data: blood pressure, oxygen and blood sugar levels, weight, and ECGs, just to mention a few. We will showcase which actual health care services can already be provided today with the help of IoT.
