Scalable Best Practice to Catalyse the Transformation of Eldercare
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 key strategy for alleviating these issues and personalising healthcare.
Smart healthcare is the integration of fragmented healthcare delivery mechanisms; it utilises electronic patient records and streamlines processes with the aim of improving the quality of peoples’ lives by reducing health risks and improving their well-being. Patient-centric services such as remote monitoring and checks are customised 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 the higher life-expectancy of the aging population and the rise in chronic diseases, particularly in North America and Western Europe.
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 utilise 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 capitalise 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 commercialisation.
