IOT IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE
With recent advances in technology and more favourable patient attitudes, healthrelated Internet of Things (H-IoT) has the potential to further flourish in the coming years. Better product design - including miniaturisation of sensors and smaller batteries, alongside regulatory environment on personal data sharing and ubiquitous internet access, have been other contributing factors to the expansion of H-IoT. H-IoT has already been playing a growing and significant role in health management in both the health and social care setting. H-IoT provides numerous advantages to citizens, health and care professionals and facilities. These are wide-ranging, from testing of treatments, actuation of medical devices, to wellbeing and fitness monitoring, which is seeing traction in the commercial space with popular apps and wearables. In combination with its numerous applications and benefits of H-IoT, adoption by medical and social care institutions is increasing. DOWNLOAD
