Develop secure, reliable and smart medical devices with low-power, compact, and high-performance cellular IoT chipsets

Mobile Health: The Future of Healthcare

IoT devices have transformed the way that people manage their health. The growth of mHealth (mobile health) services has been exponential over the past few years and healthcare providers are seeking innovative ways to provide care remotely.

The use of mobile devices to track and monitor health data, such as heart rate, blood pressure, and glucose levels, has made it easier for patients to manage chronic conditions from the comfort of their own homes. Telemedicine and virtual consultations have allowed doctors and healthcare professionals to connect with patients in rural or remote areas, increasing access to healthcare services. COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of telehealth and continued growth is predicted as more individuals and healthcare providers embrace the benefits of mobile technology in healthcare.

Highly secured communication

Security is crucial for healthcare devices. Sony’s Altair cellular IoT chipset provides highly secured architecture approved by tier 1 operators, with built-in security designed from the bottom up. In particular, the ALT1250 LTE-M & NB-IoT cellular IoT chipset offers highly secured communication, while OTA upgrades keep the device relevant and secure for years after installation. LTE connectivity enables independent, safe and effective monitoring at hospitals and during the recovery phase at home, with built-in data protection and safety, with a direct channel to the cloud.

Remote Patient Monitoring

Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. Patients with chronic conditions no longer need to schedule regular visits to their healthcare provider’s office, saving time and money on transportation and reducing the risk of exposure to infections. With RPM devices such as glucose monitors, blood pressure monitors, sleep therapy equipment, cardiac rhythm monitors, and fall detection systems, healthcare providers can monitor patients’ health in real time and in the comfort of their own home to detect any potential issues before they escalate into serious problems, improving patient outcomes and reducing healthcare costs.


IoT Requirements for mHealth

Mobile health devices require highly optimized hardware that offers very reliable communication, high security, small size, and long battery life (for battery-powered devices), at an affordable cost.

Product Monitoring and Tracking

Product monitoring and tracking plays an essential role in ensuring that patients receive the highest quality of care. This includes monitoring and tracking of intensive care beds, defibrillators, pharmaceuticals, smart wheelchairs, and vaccine cold chain tracking. Specifically for vaccines, remote monitoring technology enables healthcare providers to track their temperature and humidity levels and ensure that they remain effective and safe to use. By always staying connected through remote monitoring technology, healthcare providers can improve the reliability and cost-effectiveness when shipping these critical products.
