With the expansion of 5G, applying IoT to healthcare could be a fast way to determine an appropriate treatment path. To determine the level of tech you need, assess the quantity and severity of cases in the hospital over a defined period: Could the cases be managed remotely given the right wearable monitoring solution? What would be the impact of freeing up beds as a result of enabling more remote patient monitoring, enabling you to treat a higher number of patients per day?
Analyzing the answers to the questions above determines how sophisticated you can get.
The hospital's IT department would need to consider upgrading the infrastructure to receive the influx of data coming in. Also, doctors, nurses and staff would need devices capable of receiving data, and the medical team might need the training to ensure they know how to access, store and transfer the information. Before technicians can install IoT solutions, you must assess, confirm or upgrade the network and security.
