The Integration Of Connectivity & Wearables In Telemedicine
Wearable devices and enhanced connectivity are ruling the healthcare continuum for the past few years and telemedicine are showing its talent in transforming the way care is being delivered now.
Think of the advantages and the care outcomes it would provide when these are merged. Yes! It is happening. Wearable devices are everywhere and they provide connectivity and save lives before anything happens on the contrary for a person.
Telehealth started to break down barriers to remote care, taking care of the unreachable locations, staff shortages, availability of specialties, etc. This wade made more possible along with the immense growth of IoT and wearable devices which allowed access to share information across the ecosystem and continue to be connected.
Telemedicine Vs Telehealth
Telehealth is the distribution of health-related services and information via electronic information and telecommunication technologies. It allows long-distance patient and clinician contact, care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring, and remote admissions.
Telemedicine is sometimes used as a synonym or is used in a more limited sense to describe remote clinical services, such as diagnosis and monitoring. When rural settings, lack of transport, a lack of mobility, conditions due to outbreaks, epidemics or pandemics, decreased funding, or a lack of staff restrict access to care, telehealth may bridge the gap as well as provide distance-learning; meetings, supervision, and presentations between practitioners; online information and health data management and healthcare system integration.
Telehealth could include two clinicians discussing a case over video conference; a robotic surgery occurring through remote access; physical therapy is done via digital monitoring instruments, live feed, and application combinations; tests being forwarded between facilities for interpretation by a higher specialist; home monitoring through continuous sending of patient health data; client to practitioner online conference; or even videophone interpretation during a consult.
The Potential Of Telemedicine
Telemedicine or telehealth’s potential in expanding the quality of care delivered is immense. It exhibits the potential to enhance the healthcare quality and make it more accessible to a large population, simultaneously.
It also improves the efficiency, coordination, and accessibility of healthcare to a wider range of people. Wearable devices have evolved in the fact that they can collect, store and process health data which can be used to enhance the field.
These medical devices which are interconnected create a heavy load of simultaneous patient data that has the ability to streamline healthcare delivery, provide efficiency in treatment planning, and personalized care, improve health outcomes, and improve the quality of patient care.
Wearables For RPM
Wearable technology is one of the best constantly evolving technology that has set itself as a proven way of effortlessly collecting in-depth real-time patient data. Wearable devices are mostly used in remote patient monitoring and resulted in improving patient outcomes as they allow providers to make accurate decisions at the right time.
The Healthcare industry's future is filled with innovative technologies, digitization, and automation. As these things progress, the techs of wearables will continue to grow and be integrated into telemedicine to assist providers and their patients in better formats.
The next-gen AI will allow more integration of health data into wearable and other mobile applications. The advanced integrations of IoT and telemedicine may also assist medical procedures from a distance in the future. This could save time, money, and unnecessary inconveniences.
Welcome To The Future Of Telemedicine
The future of automation and digitization is here already. The growth of telemedicine demands the essential integration of AI, IoT, connectivity, and wearable devices. This is important for the evolution of the healthcare continuum and connected health tools.
These technologies make healthcare systems more efficient and improved and make them reach more remote and unreachable areas all over the world. They will also reduce the workloads of physicians, clinicians, and healthcare organizations, and promotes healthier care delivery and patient outcomes.
