IoT and big data are going to change the way the health care system works. And it is already happening.
Raise your hand if you have ever missed a dentist’s appointment. Or how about missing your child’s monthly checkup because you just had a new client deal to finish?
First of all, great parenting, you parent of the year.
Second of all, congratulations on getting a new client! I am sure it came at the expense screwing up your health, but you won’t have any regrets later in your life, right?
See, here’s the thing, your health matters, and so does that of your family. Wouldn’t it be great if you could diagnose all your problems before something scary happens? And guess what, you wouldn’t even have to miss your child’s check-up.
In today’s time, it’s important to stay updated on your health. This is where our today’s topic of IoT barges in.
Here is a list of topics that we will be covering today
- How technologies are transforming modern-day health care.
- How connected devices can boost health care infrastructure.
- Societal benefits of healthcare.
Wow, with those mouthful topics, you bet today’s going to be a big ride. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get it.
How Technologies Are Transforming Modern-Day Health Care.
You know it, I know it. We all have seen those tv shows on discovery channel bragging about how the next-gen nanobots are going to fix all our health problems.
I am here to tell you that we will still have a long way to go. No, Nanobots won’t solve STDs or something, but there are other things that they can focus on.
And those things include:
Machine learning: These can be used to boost diagnosis by providing services and not only that, all these services can be completely personalized. As every person’s diagnosis, symptoms, and problems are going to be different, machine learning will have to use its trump card of finding patterns to provide the best course of action
If machine learning is the hammer of the modern-day health industry, then Data Analysis
is its anvil.
and cloud computing can help patients within the hospital, but data analytics can take care of patients outside the healthcare zones. All the behavioral tracking, that data analysts and specialists are experts in, will know what sort of person needs what sort of instructions to live a happy fulfilled life.
And if you think that I am bluffing, then believe me I am not. It is already happening for a long time. Ever heard of the phenomenon of increasing old age? Yup, that’s the magic of data analysis meeting with policymakers to create a great healthcare model.
If we could do that before, imagine what we can do now.
And this leads us to our next point, which is:
How Connected Devices Can Boost Health Care Infrastructure.
Imagine if you had the power to understand the exact dosage of your medicine for your specific problem. And all you had to do, was click on your smartphone/laptop screen, and voila! All the answers you could have hoped for are yours now.
Not just that, from the medical professional side, imagine how easy it would be to catalog all the data from all the visits of all your patients. Life will just be so easy, wouldn’t it?
That is exactly what the amalgamation of healthcare and big data can bring to you. By using analytics of all kinds, ranging from descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analysis, most all people can be given the right treatment at the right time.
And now, finally, this brings us to the last chapter of our topic today, which is:
Societal Benefits Of Healthcare Merged With Technology.
Ever heard of a term called smart city?
You know, that hi-tech ultra-modern city with all the amenities that people need to sustain and thrive in large communities.
Well, here’s the thing. The concept of a smart city is so interlinked with Machine learning, data analytics, and Artificial intelligence that it’s damn near impossible for us to now separate these two fields from each other.
Here is a list of information that technology can offer in healthcare and large cities.
- Noise pollution
- Air pollution
- Water pollution
- Traffic congestion
- Humidity and temperature fluctuations.
And this is just the information gathering aspect of what big data can do in a big city. We haven’t even begun to describe how awesome changes can IoT provide in healthcare for an entire city.
Stay tuned for that topic next time!
