A lot of industry data and trends point to an exciting future for IoT in healthcare, including recent research from Deloitte that found 50% of executives think at least a quarter of outpatient care, preventative care, long-term care, and well-being services will be delivered virtually by 2040.
The COVID-19 pandemic drove healthcare providers and life sciences companies to look for a technology-driven solution to monitor patients and deliver care remotely in order to reduce the risk of exposure. IoT managed services can help healthcare providers and life sciences companies deploy full-scale, reliable connected health solutions across the globe while keeping overhead costs low.
IoT for healthcare is in higher demand than ever before, with Markets and Markets forecasting an estimated compound annual growth rate of 21% through 2025. For healthcare and life sciences companies deploying connected health solutions, deploying quickly and successfully is essential. IoT managed services for connected health help speed time to market for critical deployments. With services ranging from hardware procurement and connectivity to forward and reverse logistics, IoT managed services help streamline the process of deploying, managing, and scaling connected health initiatives across the globe.
Regulatory compliance is necessary to ensure that connected health solutions adhere to strict standards related to quality, process, and safety. Certifications and registrations, such as those obtained from the European Medicines Agency (EMA), U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) provide a necessary level of quality assurance and strict adherence to regulatory requirements. Regulations to be aware of that require strict adherence are Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Medical Device Directive (MDD), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment (WEEE).
Next-generation connected healthcare requires an expert approach to IoT. Providers need to solve patient interaction and support needs on their own, presenting a unique set of challenges for connected health solutions. A managed mobile device management (MDM) solution can enable healthcare and life sciences companies to remotely monitor, secure, and control connected health devices. MDM solutions should be tailored to patient privacy and security requirements, and can be customised for handheld devices deployed in remote patient monitoring and decentralised clinical trials.
KORE specialises in IoT managed services for connected health and is recognised as an industry leader in segments including decentralised clinical trials (DCTs), remote patient monitoring (RPM), and mobile personal emergency response systems (mPERS). We offer robust solutions for IoT in healthcare and managed services that are fully compliant with FDA regulations, using ISO 9001 and 13485 certified facilities and processes. Complete IoT device lifecycle services ensure quality control while managed MDM solutions ensure security and enable remote access.
