MultiTech devices provide the foundational basis OEMs need to create healthcare IoT solutions that had never existed in the past. This new device landscape presents an exciting opportunity for medical manufacturers who want to make the most of increased connectivity for patients.
IoT Healthcare Devices
IoT healthcare devices are transforming how healthcare is delivered. The use of electronic medical devices is increasingly migrating from health care centers to homes. A new set of challenges faces device designers and manufacturers. In the past, it was nearly impossible to conceive of a patient undergoing dialysis in his or her own home, linking remotely to his or her physician for daily blood pressure or glucose checks, or downloading pacemaker activity via a telephone line.
Today, all possibilities are a reality, and the advancement of innumerable more in-home connected medical devices is on the health care horizon. The accessibility of wireless technology, mobile applications and other connectivity platforms facilitates device manufacturers’ ability to make complex IoT healthcare devices available for home use. This trend offers beneficial new opportunities to multiple stakeholders, including added convenience for health care providers; improved care for patients; and cost savings for insurers and government payers.
MultiTech’s key benefits assisting medical equipment OEM providers include:
- Domestic manufacturing and supply chain integration
- Exceptionally strong lifecycle management
- Broad base of core platforms
- 3PL, controlled products and integration services
One of the advantages of IoT in healthcare is the wide range of possible applications. There are many diseases and conditions that IoT devices can be used to monitor and analyze.
This is by no means a comprehensive list — MultiTech devices provide the foundational basis OEMs need to create healthcare IoT solutions that had never existed in the past. This new device landscape presents an exciting opportunity for medical manufacturers who want to make the most of increased connectivity for patients.
MultiTech enables medical equipment from defibrillators to hospital equipment to home care devices for improved:
Equipment maintenance and reliability
IoT healthcare devices can provide an alert when their power is running low. This provides both the patient and the healthcare provider with the peace of mind they need to know that their devices won’t stop working unexpectedly.
Quality of care
Quality of Life
IoT solutions can provide patients with a higher quality of life on a daily basis. Improved connectivity eliminates the need for frequent doctor visits, allowing the patient to live with a higher level of independence. If the patient is using an IoT device for any type of health monitoring, they also won’t need to meticulously keep track of health changes, as this information will live in the data. IoT devices can help patients live more independently, making daily life more enjoyable without sacrificing any quality in care.
