IoT has opened up a world of possibilities when it comes to healthcare, enabling everything from Remote Patient Monitoring and smart medical devices to allocating a better use of resources through the collection and analyzation of data. Before IoT, patients interacted with their healthcare providers mainly through in-person visits, or sometimes via phone, text, or email. IoT allows doctors and other care providers to monitor patients, while also putting more control in the hands of patients, enabling them to take an active part in their care, rather than just being a by-stander.

IoT-enabled healthcare empowers both patients and healthcare provides, increasing engagement and satisfaction, as well as leading to improved outcomes and significant cost savings.
