The telemedicine revolution through connectivity and IoT solutions to improve the quality of life of patients with chronic conditions.
Telemedicine has experienced exponential growth in recent years, becoming an increasingly popular tool in clinical practice. According to a report by Global Market Insights , the global telemedicine market is expected to grow to $175 billion by 2026. This growth is largely due to the increase in chronic diseases and the growing need for accessible and affordable healthcare solutions.
Some relevant data underline the importance of specialised health monitoring devices for the management of chronic conditions:
- 88% of people managing chronic conditions for themselves or someone else believe that a specialised remote health monitoring device would help them better manage their health.
- Only 28% would rely on a wearable consumer health device to manage their chronic condition.
- 75% of people managing chronic conditions would wear a specialised remote health monitoring device if their doctor provided it.
Yodh Research, with over 20 years of experience in the telemedicine industry, offers customised telemedicine solutions through its partnership with Sony. The collaboration between the two companies enables the creation of clinical parameter monitoring kits that can be used wherever the patient is. The telemedicine expertise within Yodh Research S.A. covers all the main aspects of this discipline, giving patients the freedom to travel and live the life they love, while remaining under the constant monitoring of their doctors.
Harnessing the power of the Internet of Things (IoT), Yodh Research and Sony have developed the mSafety platform, which significantly reduces the cost of healthcare delivery and accelerates clinical trials. Remote monitoring applications based on mSafety also benefit end users by improving quality of life and personal safety.
In hazardous working environments or in extreme situations such as those faced by emergency services, mSafety-based remote monitoring applications can help save lives. Telemedicine aims to improve the quality of life of patients by providing constant monitoring, reducing waiting times for medical visits and facilitating access to care for people living in remote areas.
The mSafety platform consists of a wearable device with a back-end that provides real-time data to service providers and users. This solution eliminates dependence on a companion device for connectivity and ensures long battery life, making life easier for end users and enabling service providers to create more innovative solutions.
The LTE Cat-M1 network technology used for the mSafety service was developed specifically for IoT applications and is now used for IoT devices in most major markets. With this technology, telemedicine can offer advanced, secure and scalable solutions to meet the growing needs of patients and the healthcare sector.
Telemedicine is transforming clinical practice and improving patients’ quality of life by offering greater freedom, access to care and personal safety.
In addition to the benefits for patients, telemedicine also offers significant benefits for physicians and healthcare professionals. These include the ability to monitor patients remotely, reducing workload and improving efficiency, and the ability to collect and analyse health data in real time, enabling faster and more accurate diagnosis.
In conclusion, the partnership between Yodh Research and Sony represents a step forward in the field of telemedicine and offers a promising vision for the future of healthcare. Thanks to the innovation and expertise of both companies, telemedicine will continue to evolve and improve the lives of millions of patients worldwide.
