Smart medical devices are the wave of the future. They are aimed to advance the American healthcare system, and these devices present the opportunity to change the perception of modern medicine. Several factors make Smart devices better than any other: they’re smarter, more connected, and provide the right context for medical situations, proving to be the most cost-effective solution.
- SMART: Smart devices will eliminate the mental and physical steps of transcribing data into patient medical records. Communication failures and human errors in care delivery will be drastically reduced.
- CONNECTED: As health insurance becomes nearly universal, a Smart device will make information more accessible, optimize disease management, identify best practices, and educate patients about their health status. Resources will be used more efficiently and sustainably, producing better health outcomes at all levels of care.
- CONTEXTUAL: A Smart device will be able to perform a situational analysis of the patient at a given time. Providing the proper context in a healthcare situation greatly reduces the margin of error and eliminates fallacies.
