How Cloud with IoT is helping Healthcare sector?

Internet of Things (IoT) has enabled devices across the world to process and store information, so that it can be used at a later stage. However, the huge gap between data collection and ability to process and analyze acts as a major deterrent to realize this potential opportunity. A high-end cloud based IoT framework can be an effective solution to bridge this gap.

Cloud with IoT is a latest breakthrough that combines different technologies connected via internet to deliver solutions in varied places and environment on real-time basis. Healthcare, in particular, has been greatly benefitted by the emergence of IoT, which finds its application in anything from managing chronic diseases to preventing different health conditions.

Integrating Cloud Computing and IoT
Integration of cloud computing and internet in healthcare offers a host of advantages including high reliability, high efficiency, virtualization and scalability. The construction and application of public cloud in healthcare can help to improve resource sharing. It builds a highly efficient medical monitoring and management system while saving huge operational costs.

While IoT can enable safe, efficient and high quality medical monitoring and management, the cloud-based Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) technology can help to deliver cutting edge which results in medical information transmission, smart health monitoring and precise location. IoT also ensures convenience in other healthcare operations including patient monitoring and tracking management.

Application of Cloud IoT in Healthcare
Cloud based IoT services have the potential to revolutionize complete healthcare delivery system. Other technologies such as ZigBee and Wi-Fi technology can be integrated to establish seamless communication between data collection, transmitting equipment, sensor devices and the MIS system which are used for the deep data analysis.

Cloud with IoT can also be used in database design, integrating the Cloud and the smart hospital information system. This integration in association with IoT will enable real-time sensor technologies to collect data from different sensor devices. These devices are connected to the hospital system across different processes and locations. The application of a Cloud with IoT system in hospitals can allow e-storage of all patient’s records including images, documents and videos. This important information can be accessed anytime by authorized users to both service delivery and research purposes. Moreover, this cutting-edge integration would also enable data exchange between hospitals and between service providers in real time and at low cost.

Therefore, it is the need of the hour for service providers in the healthcare sector to embrace cloud based IoT technology to deliver efficient and effective services.

A relevant course can help you contribute towards improvement of Healthcare sector in India and Globally.
