The global Internet of Things (IoT) market was valued at $44.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to $254.2 billion in 2026, according to AllTheResearch.
In China, the development of IoT health industry has been very large. With the rapid development of mobile Internet and deployment of 5G networks, it ranges from functional smart wearable sensors and in-home care, to community remote health monitoring and in-clinic/in-hospital management. The integration of health IoT operating devices such as smart watch, smart medicine chests, IoT medical equipment, smart robots, smart pharmacies, and health huts are widely used in different places nowadays.
Concerns have gradually shifted from how to maintain health of individual patient, to how to improve services in the medical and health field.
Among the application scenarios of the IoTs, remote patient monitoring is more common, and the broad application prospects of 5G networks have created more possibilities for its application. With the ability to collect, analyze and transmit health data, IoT devices are rapidly changing healthcare delivery. For patients and clinicians, these applications are playing a central part in tracking and preventing chronic illnesses, postoperative rehabilitation, medical-related education, epidemic management, etc. — and they’re poised to evolve the future of care.
Heal Force Intelligent IoT Solution
Based on strong hardware integration capabilities, systematic software and hardware technical services, and excellent cost control capabilities, Heal Force gathers multiple hardware engineers to optimize IoT series products to ensure excellent functionality while improving product stability and portability. After years of innovative research, IoT products have developed and can be customized to meet different requirements.
The Heal Force Medibase cloud platform can effectively collect various health testing data, assist in diagnosis and treatment of chronic disease, also develop remote health management consulting services to expand the Internet of Things medical service projects.
It further enables clinicians to monitor and treat patients remotely — an ever-growing need for patients in rural communities as they struggle to recruit and retain medical specialists.
A complete intelligent IoT solution can also include:
Health management service: upload data to the chronic disease management cloud platform, with follow-up management function, record doctor’s regular and irregular return visits for pregnant women, elderly, and chronic disease patients, so that the electronic health records will become more dynamic managed. Residents can check health reports at any time, obtain health assessments, dietary & exercises recommendation, and other health guidance opinions. Therefore, health management changes from passive to active.
Self-service health assessment system: TCM physical identification, vision screening, sleep assessment, stress assessment, depression assessment, etc., provide effective support for health management of medical facilities.
Health education: through Internet to perform health education for residents and increase the popularization rate of residents’ health knowledge by using websites, official accounts, APPs and other platform.
Customized service: Various testings can be added to fulfill different diagnostic needs such as hemoglobin, blood lipids, twelve-lead ECG, urinalysis, etc.
The development of the IoT system has already penetrated into our lives. In the case of the epidemic that has profoundly affected the global medical and health industry in
2020, the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center has used a continuous body temperature sensor based on the Bluetooth protocol to help fight the spread of the new coronavirus.
Doctors use multiple Bluetooth bio-sensors to collect patient vital signs data at the same time and send them to the central management system. Medical staff monitor their vital signs, reducing the need for routine physical examinations of patients, thereby reducing the communication time between patients and medical staff. The possibility of cross-infection can block the transmission of infectious diseases.
The IoT system has huge development prospects in life and has relatively mature practical solutions. The release of the “Healthy Internet of Things White Paper” in China will bring a more complete and complete normative reference to the health of Internet of Things industry, and promote the healthy development and progress of the industry.
