Many hospitals are making the switch to wearable monitoring devices for their many benefits. Wearable devices use a block chain application which increases the security of the information they are monitoring as well as makes viewing the data easier for health care providers.
Wearable devices can monitor vitals such as blood pressure and pulse, but can also track things such as epileptic seizures and diabetes. The information that is collected from these devices is vital to healthcare providers, and with this new technology, doctors can monitor patients remotely with real time data.
Patients can have access to these devices even when they return home which is important in case another medical emergency occurs. If this happens, the wearable device collects data that is important for first responders to accurately treat a patient upon arrival.Most importantly, wearable devices connect all data to a patient hub where all information is easily accessible by health care providers. The use of these devices is significantly safer than the current technology as it uses a block chain application which keeps patient data more secure.
With the many benefits of wearable devices, it is clear that all providers should be making the switch soon. Learn more about wearable medical devices and other health solutions on the blockchain in the infographic below:
