Connected Health

Develop secure, reliable, smart medical designs for any healthcare setting with low-power, high-performance wireless SoCs and modules from the global leader in IoT.

Smart medical devices, from pulse oximeters and ECG monitors to fitness wearables, make healthcare more accessible and are improving lives around the world. But developing these products is challenging. Crowded RF environments, regulatory requirements, and security are just a few things device manufacturers must overcome. Our broad portfolio of multiprotocol wireless modules and SoCs simplifies this process and accelerates time-to-market.

Trends Driving Connected Health

The modern healthcare system is undergoing a global transformation, and we’re all being impacted. Some of the key drivers fueling the need for digital transformation include:

Aging Population

The number of people over the age of 60 will double by 2050. With more people living longer, it’s important that we improve the way we manage illness and chronic diseases without adding strain to the healthcare system.

Increasing Costs in Hospitals

Global healthcare costs are growing dramatically. The WHO estimated that the government health expenditure per capita rose 22% between 2008-2018 (USD 661 => 517). The current healthcare system can’t cope with the rapidly increasing demand.

COVID-19 Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic caused many losses of lives and stalled the global economy for two years. Most health systems with outdated infrastructure experienced considerable strain. Preparing for next time is crucial.

Healthcare Transformation

The modern healthcare system is facing a challenge: how to to provide health services to more people while the costs of clinical care are growing and capacity is shrinking. A radical transformation towards more robust and efficient health systems is required.

A resilient and well-functioning health system requires:

  • Increasing operational efficiency, resource utilization, performance, and patient care in hospitals
  • Ensuring service continuity with patient mobility to more post-acute care
  • Promote preventive and proactive health among large populations

 

The Solution is Connected Health

IoT connectivity provides the buildings blocks to revolutionize healthcare and enable a wide range of life-saving applications. Hospital managers are equipped with the data needed to make well-versed decisions while streamlining previously unmanageable processes and minimizing human intervention. Smart medical devices, from pulse oximeters and ECG monitors to fitness wearables, make connected healthcare more accessible and are improving lives around the world. Developing these products is challenging. Crowded RF environments, regulatory requirements, and security are just a few things device manufacturers must overcome.
