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.
