According to research conducted by McKinsey & Company, telehealth usage in April 2020 spiked to a record high of 78 times higher than in February 2020 due to the initial surge of the COVID-19 pandemic. Though telehealth usage has since decreased, it has stabilised at 38 times higher than before the pandemic began. McKinsey research also suggests an increase in spending $250 million due to a move from on-site to fully virtual medicine.
With technology leading the way in the healthcare space, providers are continuing to look for solutions that remain reliable to monitor patients and deliver quality care – and this is where IoT managed services takes action.
IoT managed services streamline the challenging process of deploying, managing, and scaling solutions with hardware, connectivity, and logistics to help speed up critical deployments in the market.
Some everyday practices of virtual healthcare include prescription management and decentralised clinical trials (DCTs). The purpose of DCTs is to eliminate unnecessary site visits for patients, resulting in more efficient and cost-effective operations for the provider.
Contract Research Organisations (CROs) provide services to pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device companies, and CROs help arrange protocols in DCTs. IoT plays a role by powering sensors in medical smart weight scales, thermometers, and pulse oximeters for DCTs. Device management, connectivity, and logistic services all aid DCTs with IoT managed services by reducing connected health challenges.
