With a growing aging population and the prevalence of chronic diseases across the world, there is an urgent need to find new ways to improve patient outcomes, increase access to care, and reduce the cost of medical care. Advancements in sensor technology, the ubiquitous availability of cellular technology, and falling costs of embedded communication devices are opening new channels for improving patient care and quality of life.
An individual person, for example, may own multiple smart devices that each produce their own unique types of data. Each of these data sets can help providers understand a narrowly defined trend how a group of patients is controlling their blood sugar or which hypertension patients are losing weight on a certain diet. Individual devices send signals that contain valuable data points, but it’s the combination of multiple streams of data that will bring greater value to healthcare providers. When that individual owns multiple devices, providers can assemble a multifaceted portrait of their overall health and treat that enhanced vision of the individual as a new, larger data point.
Bottom line, when lives are at stake and every second counts, rich information sharing between patients, clinicians, medical records, devices and machines in real-time will help eliminate errors and duplicate efforts, better inform diagnoses, and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Hospitals, pharmacies, laboratories, and other healthcare providers worldwide are responsible for executing an ever-expanding list of refrigeration monitoring requirements from a myriad of governing agencies. Yet many struggle to maintain compliance, due to undetected refrigeration failures, resulting in costly consequences.
