About Smart Healthcare

When it comes to healthcare service provision, resource shortages and uneven allocation can add pressure to already burdened healthcare providers. Smart healthcare is becoming a crucial strategy for alleviating these issues and personalizing healthcare.

Smart healthcare is the integration of fragmented healthcare delivery mechanisms; it utilizes electronic patient records and streamlines processes intending to improve the quality of peoples’ lives by reducing health risks and improving their well-being. Patient-centric services such as; remote monitoring and checks are customized to the patient’s individual needs and have a wider reach, thereby improving access to healthcare.

Effective remote monitoring of health conditions and the adoption of smart healthcare products are gaining momentum due to the higher life expectancy of the aging population and the rise in chronic diseases, particularly in North America and Western Europe.

Connectivity and Interoperability

IoT technologies power the industry’s connectivity and its revolution. Connected devices and wearable technology enable healthcare professionals to monitor patients remotely with sensors and to utilize their medical data for diagnostics, treatment, and prescription.

Some of the blips the industry faces are issues like data security and privacy concerns over sensitive medical data, and the fragmentation and complexity of smart healthcare systems and their interoperability solutions.

At TÜV SÜD, we seek to provide innovative solutions around safety, security, reliability, efficiency, and interoperability for complex systems, serving as an enabler for digital transformation.

To support our objective, we are looking for co-innovation partners who can help us capitalize on these emerging trends by working on verification and certification methods for new solutions. These will help to ensure that they are suitable for large-scale deployment and commercialization.
