      Hi,

      I am trying to develop an IoT based In-hospital patient monitoring system.

      For that I need to show the improvements in healthcare technology after introducing Internet of Things(IoT) in it compared to

       

      i. Conventional healthcare(without using any technology)

                 In this case medical staff is required to periodically monitor the patient's vital signs such as temperature, blood pressure etc.

       

      ii. By using Information technology in Healthcare

                 My question here is what are the improvements in healthcare technology by introducing Information technology compared to conventional way?

       

      iii. By introducing Internet of Things(IoT) in healthcare

                 IoT enabled ubiquitous patient monitoring systems eliminate the need for a separate healthcare professional come by at regular intervals to check the patient's vital signs by employing sensors, gateways and the cloud to analyse and store the information and then send the analysed data wirelessly to medical professional for further analysis. In this way,  IoT enabled devices simultaneously enhance the quality of care through regular monitoring and minimise the cost of care by eliminating the need for a medical administrator to actively engage in data collection and analysis.

       

       

      What are the improvements in healthcare after introducing Internet of things(IoT) compared to introducing  Information technology in Healthcare?
