Smart medical devices and intelligent medical systems are the future of healthcare. With the development of innovative technologies such as the internet of things (loT), big data, cloud computing, 5G, and artificial intelligence, the traditional healthcare delivery model is increasingly replaced with efficient, convenient, and personalized systems. They mitigate several problems that impede the delivery of good healthcare to people worldwide, adding to human life’s quality and longevity to a large extent.
Smart healthcare is not a single-dimensional concept, instead, it’s a multifaceted approach, including disease prevention and monitoring, diagnosis and treatment, hospital management, health decision-making, and medical research. Patients can use IoT-based wearable devices for an around the clock monitoring of their health, seek medical assistance through virtual assistants, and use remote homes to implement remote services. On the other hand, doctors use smart devices for various intelligent clinical decision support systems for improved diagnostics. They can also manage medical and patient information through several integrated platforms such as laboratory information management systems, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), electronic medical records, and others. Further, mixed reality technology tools and surgical robots enable surgeons to perform more precise surgery.
Several new players and corporate organizations are coming up with innovative smart medical devices, which disrupt traditional healthcare systems to help enhance care delivery and quality of life. By closely following innovations in the healthcare arena, we have compiled a list of smart medical device providers transforming the healthcare sector.
