What is the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)?

Glossary

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) takes the revolution of the Internet of Things (IoT) into the healthcare industry. The integration of IoT in healthcare is projected to reach $188 billion by 2024. With that level of growth expectations, your practice can take full advantage of the explosion in new technology with sensor machines and real-time health-monitoring devices. 

At TempDev, we consult with you to better understand how trends like remote patient monitoring (RPM) and IoMT are affecting your practice. 

What Is the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)?

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) represents the considerable growth of medical and healthcare applications in clinics, hospitals, and other medical spaces. More than 500,000 medical technologies are currently available for use as part of the IoMT, so you can better collect, analyze, and transmit data about your patients via electronic health records (EHRs). 

What Are the Benefits of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)?

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) represents enormous benefits to healthcare as it transforms the way you interact with and monitor patients. Here are just a few of the top benefits.

  • Save money: Medical devices allow you to remotely monitor your patients so you can receive the real-time data you need while saving time and avoiding the use of other expensive resources.  
  • Monitor in real-time: You can be more proactive with patient care. You may share your diagnosis earlier, which can help to avoid the exacerbation of symptoms into a heart attack, CHF, device checks, or other health events. 
  • Ensure better patient experience: Better connect with your patients with a level of improved accuracy in diagnosis, real-time health monitoring, and educational resources. 

At TempDev, we consult with you to help you take full advantage of the IoMT revolution, with expectations that there will be 75 billion IoT devices by 2025
