Providing smart wearables in healthcare with custom IoT solutions.
The client – In search of a digital health service provider
Infomaze helped a leading healthcare company from UAE leverage the full potential of IoT by building web and mobile application that tracks the patients and hospital staff’s whereabouts, extendable to any user who needs monitoring with a medical monitoring device or otherwise.
In this case study, we discuss how using RFID ( (Radio-Frequency Identification) and IoT, we helped improve our client’s healthcare environment, services and drove patient satisfaction as a result.
We also address how using the very same health-focused wearable technology; you can improve your day to day life.
The Challenge – Lack of wearable health solutions to tackle effortless, digitally organized environment.
Before contacting Infomaze, our client was manually handling patient records on spreadsheets and word docs, keeping track of their patient’s and staff’s whereabouts and appointment. With the above system, it was not easy for them to monitor and keep up with schedules and appointments efficiently, leading to many inconveniences.
The requirement – A smart health wearable for patient monitoring
The client wanted a real-time tracking of the patient’s health through monitoring blood pressure, body temperature, heart rate, blood oxygen level, sleep status, and location at all times of the day.
The client also required a way to store all the above data in one place, with secure but easy access for people with the right credentials.
They sought to establish better patient security, increase patient satisfaction, update the hospital staff’s availability, improve internal processes, and identify gaps in their workflow. They were hence looking for a centralized IoT solution to bridge the digital divide with smart healthcare wearables.
How Infomaze developed a custom IoT solution for a healthcare provider?
After analyzing their needs, we came up with a unique IoT solution to automate their real-time processes with our IoT application development services. Our expert IoT developers built a web app on React JS using MongoDB database and mobile application on React Native to drive automation across the hospital.
The IoT app we built allowed seamless communication between the smart bracelet. We incorporated advanced features such as Geo-fencing, RFID activation, contact syncing, fall detection, tracking the patient’s medical history, steps taken, and sleep, along with instant alerts and notifications.
Using RFID, we helped the smart bracelet communicate and pass information such as the patient’s data and past medical records in real-time with the web and the mobile application. Using geo-fencing, we also gave the admin the option to set boundaries.
The smart wearables in healthcare for which we developed a healthcare wearable solution and set it up to calculate blood pressure, blood oxygen level (SpO2), body temperature, and heartbeat rate at fixed intervals.
With the fixed thresholds for the patient or any user’s blood pressure, blood oxygen level (SpO2), body temperature, and heart rate that we set up, the admin/the user gets notified when the limit set gets crossed.
The bracelet tracks the number of steps taken, calories burnt, sleep quality, along with the above, including functionalities. We created a straightforward, understandable graphical representation of real-time data on both the web application and the mobile application that our IoT experts innovatively developed, making it one of the best wearables for health.
Not just on the healthcare wearable device, which has an excellent capability to store data, we helped them store all their patients’ monitoring data from all medical wearable devices on a single cloud platform with secure access.
How the user benefited through our IoT app development for a wearable health solution
Improved real-time visibility. The solution enables the hospital staff to better monitor the patients, notify the family about the patient’s next appointment, and inform the housekeeping staff when they leave the room for cleaning purposes.
Improved monitoring of the patient’s location. With the geo-fencing and fall detection sensor, the hospital staff gets notifications to detect the patient’s real-time location. When the patient/user crosses the geo-tagged boundary, the notifications help keep the healthcare provider prevent the patients from potential accidents/mishaps from occurring in the hospital.
The medical monitoring devices are widely useful to monitor a mildly-cognitively impaired person’s location, or as simple as allow a parent/caregiver to monitor their kids/an elderly’s site location in general.
Enhanced internal processes. All the events connected to the patients (movement across different departments, appointments, and so on) are recorded in one place, giving insights on how to proceed further without juggling through papers, but easily with the location tracking & positioning.
Assessing patient flow and hospital admissions. Through the seamless collection of RFID data we provided, we helped healthcare professionals predict the patient flow and admissions for long-term planning to properly utilize medications and pieces of equipment to remain idle or unawarely get overwhelmed.
Regular treatment tracking. The RFID tracking helps the patients receive notifications on their smart bracelets if they forget to take medication, miss out on a specific appointment, pinpoint the exact location, and send reminders of upcoming events.
Instant notifications. We set the threshold parameters for bio-monitoring, the graphical, easy visualization of data, and accessible communication through which the admin/a user received notifications, helping them manage their patients, or a care-taker to get a real-time picture of the situation. Be it when the patients/a user’s blood pressure, heart rate, blood oxygen level, body temperature, or the sleep cycle get irregular.
Two way calling. Also, with the contact sync option that we provided along with the two-way calling options, the patient/the user in need has the opportunity to send SOS alerts to the admin/health care-takers through our accessible communication channel set with the mobile and the web applications.
Overall, the client benefited from the patient’s real-time bio-monitoring through the healthcare wearables whose threshold parameters we set. Our healthcare wearable solution turned the medical wearable devices highly powerful and helped the client increase their ROI.
