IOMT (Internet of Medical Things) or healthcare IoT:
(Internet of Medical Things) or healthcare IoT: There is many
applications in healthcare fall under the internet of things, from remotely
monitoring devices to smart sensors and integrated medical device. It’s
potential not just to keep patients safe and healthy, also to improve how
specialist deliver care as well. Healthcare IoT can also boost patient
involvement and satisfaction by grant patients to spend more time to
interactive with their doctors.
1- Medical tools and devices like wheelchairs, defibrillators,
obscurity or monitoring tools can be connecting with sensors and existing
easily with IoT.. A part from real time position services, there are IoT
devices that help in ecological monitoring as well (controling the lab
temperature, for example).
2- With the intervention of Internet of Things, physician can
forecast the oncoming of patients who are convalesce in the Post-Anesthesia
Care Unit (PACU).They can also observe the case of patients in real time.
3- Hand hygiene monitoring systems which gauge the degree of
cleanness in a healthcare worker.
Hospitals can provide good care to patients at affordable rates. IoT aims to
provide better patient journey by:
ï Room lighting through personal control
ï Communicate to family and friends through email services
ï Immediate attention to patient needs
IoT Architecture and Structure:
implementation of IoT to be undertaken
successfully in the healthcare industry, devices need to be structured around
specific network architecture to ensure that every piece of technology is
introduced and maintained to a high standard, which should theoretically lead
to zero breakdowns in communication between the network and devices. Regarding
IoT structure, there are two main aspects, one is device management. Normally
falls under the remit of a member of the Security and IT team, who are
responsible of ensuring security protocols are followed during the introduction
process of new devices and maintained during their lifespan. The second aspect
is infrastructure management. Frequently overlapping with device management
processes, how effective they are implemented is depending on the speed in
which devices are connected. Owing to their computational limits reducing their
speed and memory, numerous IoT devices are modified, with a boosted connection
to the Cloud to increase their productivity.
