What is the role of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the field of medicine? How to reduce the healthcare costs in conditions of aging population worldwide? How to consult, treat and control patients wellness from another continent? These issues are topical today and will be more topical tomorrow!
Therefore, managers of healthcare institutions and businesses, governmental and municipal authorities, medical professionals are welcome to attend the presentation “Applications and technologies of IoT driven Smart Healthcare” offered by Alar Kuusik, a manager of IoT Technology at Eliko (Estonia), to be held at the Baltics’ first Internet of Things Conference on 21 October at Kipsala International Exhibition Centre.
Alar Kuusik will talk about telemedicine, different remote care projects in Latvian hospitals, new IoT communication technologies and the role of IoT in remote healthcare focusing on treatment and rehabilitation at home.
According to a report of McKinsey the worldwide annual economic impact of the IoT technologies could be as much as 11 trillion US dollars by 2025. IMS Research is estimating the market annual growth rate (CAGR) of healthcare information technologies over 15% and wearables nearly 40%.
IoT technologies are considered as essential enablers for personalized medicine and remote care that help to solve worldwide problems of the aging population. Further IoT solutions will provide novel home-use sensors, seamless connectivity and context aware patient support. It is expected that IoT will help to cover the gap between conventional medicine and patient’s controlled wellness and therefore simplify the treatment of chronical diseases and avoid the costly hospitalization.
