Every industry is changing the way it operates as technology is evolving
day by day. Healthcare is one of that industry which is witnessing the same.
There are amazing opportunities in the healthcare industry due to IoT in the coming
years. By using IoT, we can make use of data more efficiently. IoT improves the
performance and quality of results by different devices. IoT will change the
way the healthcare industry operates.
The IoT market in healthcare will be USD 200+ billion in the next three
Every technology comes with advantages and disadvantages. We must go
through it before understanding how IoT will make an impact on our lives.
By making use of more inserted data, we can treat patients more efficiently.
Doctors can take the right decisions for patients. Also, data can help patients,
doctors, hospitals, companies for their future.
2. Tracking and monitoring
Through the use of IoT, we can keep track of data more efficiently. It will also
improve the safety of patients. We can get the required information within seconds
through the database. Through tracking and monitoring, we can reduce risks for
patients in a critical times.
3. Connectivity of devices.
Monitoring gets easier through better connectivity of different devices. It also saves time and money.
Through IoT, we can save a lot of time for diagnosis and treatment. We can
monitor remotely rather than giving actual physical visits.
IoT devices will collect and analyze a massive amount of data, they have a high
potential for medical research purposes.
1. Privacy of Data.
Privacy is the biggest challenge with IoT, as all the connected devices
transfer data in real-time. Personal data can be hacked if this end to end
connection is not secure. Criminals can use this personal data of others for
their own benefits.
Accuracy issues may come due to handling such massive data in real-time.
IoT may reduce the cost for diagnosis and treatment for patients, But the cost
of installing all the devices and their maintenance is quite high.
