Philips Digital Healthcare Conclave 2017 #ConnectedCare In Focus by Sagay Mary, @hisagay



What if expensive, specialized patient monitoring systems in ICUs could be replaced with discreet sensors that transmitted all the vital health data directly to the doctors’ smartphones? What if the data could be analysed to deliver intelligible insights as well? Not only would it ensure better quality of care, it would also help bring down equipment and overhead costs for the hospital by eliminating expensive equipment and by even allowing patients to be cared for at home. The good news is that, this is not a hypothetical scenario but a real possibility as technology makes connected healthcare a reality.

Patient Satisfaction: IoT Enabled patient pathway by Arnab Paul, @iArnabPaul

They may forget your name, but they may never forget how you made them feel... Maya Angelou

Patient satisfaction is not a clearly defined concept, although it is identified as an important quality outcome indicator to measure success of the services delivery system

Ever since the Institute of Medicine’s 2001 'Crossing the Quality Chasm' report codified patientcenteredness as one of six health care quality aims, patient-centered care has gained footing within the landscape of health care reform. There is no consensus between the literatures on how to define the concept of patient satisfaction in healthcare. In Donabedian's quality measurement model, patient satisfaction is defined as patient-reported outcome measure while the structures and processes of care can be measured by patient-reported experiences

Putting patients at the heart of IoT in India, By Arnab Paul, @iArnabPaul

Patients are the most important stakeholders in the healthcare ecosystem and that they should be empowered to make informed choices.

In a broader sense, the "patient pathway" is the route that a patient will take from their first contact with a healthcare provider or a member of staff, through referral, to the completion of their treatment. It also covers the period from entry into a hospital or a Treatment Centre, until the patient leaves.

Healthcare IoT Strategy for Entrants & Incumbents by Arnab Paul, @iArnabPaul

The long-predicted IoT revolution in healthcare is already underway, as new use cases continue to emerge to address the urgent need for affordable, accessible care

We are still running around, jumping in the puddle of data mining and other data insights when we are hit by this new wave called 'Internet of Things" . Typically in the healthcare system the  patients dont really care what sensors will record and transmit and to whom and to where and whether it follows the standard protocol, what they really care about is whether they will be able to get well soon and how this IoT is going to help him have a better quality of life and how soon that would happen.
