Why Every Healthcare Device Should be Connected to the Internet of Things (Part 1) from Lantronix
There are myriad “things” that could benefit from having a Wi-Fi Internet connection, enabling access to devices and data anytime and anywhere. Whether it’s a vibration device monitoring commercial building disturbances or irrigation controllers charged with watering acres of plants at a theme park, the Internet of Things (IoT) provides companies with an avenue to improve efficiency, add value, and ultimately make the “things” they manufacture “smart.” Internet of Things Healthcare Applications
Having the ability to communicate remotely with these devices could even be lifesaving. Consider how the healthcare industry could benefit from an IoT-enabled Wi-Fi device that provides immediate access to a patient’s medical history, monitors the performance of a pacemaker, or ensures medication is taken as prescribed.
Saving Lives and Ensuring Quality through an IoT-Enabled Anti-Tampering and Monitoring Medication Device
One healthcare application that reaps tremendous benefits by being connected to the Internet of Things is pharmaceutical tracking. Drug counterfeiting, environmental conditions, and patient compliance with dosage instructions are all factors that can affect patient outcomes and drug efficacy. With IoT technologies, pharmaceutical manufacturers, doctors, and pharmacists now have the ability to address and track these issues…from the factory to the pharmacy to the patient.
