IT and automation have grown in a big way in the last few years and have helped various other sectors also with its innovation, adds the research group. Recently, both of these technologies have entered the healthcare market together in the form of wireless healthcare market. This has shown the patients and the people associated in the healthcare sector a glimpse of the future and how the healthcare in the future will be.
The healthcare industry currently requires the patients to come to the doctors and get their check-up done regularly to find out if there is any problem or not. Wireless healthcare systems will help the doctors handle their patients remotely. It will help the hospitals to discharge patients faster and can still get information about the patient when discharged, according to Research and Markets.
In this technology the patients will be having various types of sensors depending on their condition like heart monitors, electromyogram sensor, electroencephalogram sensors, blood monitors, etc. attached. The sensors attached will be collecting various data from the patient at regular intervals. The data will be connected to the hospitals servers and records by wireless personal or body networks.
This will be via the Internet and will be responsible for data sharing and also data retrieval. Once the data has been uploaded on the medical records of the hospital, the doctor will be able to understand the condition of the patient and will be able to make decisions and send instructions back to the patient, notes Research and Markets.
