In the wake of rising cases of diseases, especially chronic diseases mainly due to lifestyle changes, it has become inevitable for patients to be monitored continuously. This has led to innovations and technological advancements in the field of patient monitoring. Wearable like smartwatches, fitness trackers, heart rate monitors, and so on, began revolutionizing patient monitoring. Non-invasive monitors have not only decreased the risk of exposure to blood-borne pathogens, but they have also made the patient’s health data available to doctors round the clock, anywhere.
Today’s patient monitoring solutions are leveraging technologies such as wireless sensors, big data analytics, AI, and so on for round-the-clock monitoring of patients to deliver insights into patient health. These are also capable of enabling practitioners to monitor their patients even outside the hospital and have broadened the scope of healthcare overall. Additionally, these solutions also have the potential to lower costs, both for patients and medical institutions, and improve medical outcomes.
In spite of these advantages, many healthcare providers still find it hard to leverage these advanced solutions. This is because most of these solutions are yet to be adequately integrated with existing clinical care processes, infrastructure tools.
Considering these facts, a distinguished selection panel comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, and the Healthcare Tech Outlook’s editorial board has selected a list of the top patient monitoring solution providers that leverage innovative technologies and strategies to enhance today’s patient monitoring capabilities.
