IoT Is Giving Patients A Living, Breathing Baseline For Health
PSFK’s Future of Health report explores how sensors and next generation IoT are changing healthcare
The days of going to the doctor's office and waiting for someone to dig into a file cabinet to find your medical records are numbered. In PSFK's Future of Health Report, we explore how a physical web of sensors and IoT-enabled devices is allowing for the continuous collection of health data, enabling each patient to establish a personal baseline for their wellbeing.
As data collection tools continue to advance, one of the biggest markets for IoT is in health, where wearables and home-based sensors can be used to monitor vitals in a continuous manner, creating a living health record that is constantly updated. This enables doctors to monitor individuals remotely and provides medical care anytime, anywhere, while also empowering patients to keep better track of their own health.
