Easing the Road to Recovery

Anamika Sahu, Managing EditorThe grandness of change in the field of medical imaging technology is hard to fathom. The advancements in diagnostic imaging have not only improved clinical care but have also become important tools in the research of disease, trauma care, and preventive medicine. However, still a major portion of the global population remains barred with the most basic of human needs - medical care. Providing treatment and diagnosis to remote locations where doctors are not easily available still remain a major concern for a larger part of the globe.

But with IoT-enabled embedded medical
devices, healthcare specialists can easily identify diseases and provide treatments in a timely manner from distant locations itself. These devices not just reduce time to diagnose and treat patients effectively, but even store data of each patient on cloud and use them for different analysis and diagnosis purpose on a repetitive basis, decreasing the overall treatment turnaround. With medical equipments speaking to each others and offering better healthcare services, the IoT in healthcare is going to be a huge market. A research claims that the global IoT in the healthcare market is expected to register a CAGR of 28.6 percent during the forecast period (2018-2023), while the APAC region will register the highest CAGR attributed to the increase in number of hospitals and surgical centers in this region.
