Tracking every pulse, beacon app development becomes the nerve of healthcare

  1. 1. Beacons Become the Nerve of Healthcare
  2. 2. IoT Heralding Changes • Internet of things or IoT becomes the focal point of modern day technology and becomes inevitable for every industry including the healthcare industry • The discreet beacons become a vital component of the IoT ecosystem, revolutionizing the way things have been done in the last few years
  3. 3. Beacons Everywhere Hitting the Bull’s Eye with Beacons Based Retargeting!! 1 Bringing Beacons to Education Campuses – The Best Thing Ever 2 The Big Rise of Smart Retail with the Tiny Beacons 3 Beacons in Enterprise Mobility – Revolutionizing & Boosting Business 4 Retail Analytics with the Tiny Beacons & Big Data – Contrasting but Complementing 5
  4. 4. Beacons in Healthcare
  5. 5. Interesting Statistics Forbes cites a market research report that puts the healthcare industry IoT investments at about $110 billion plus by 2020 A review suggests that about 60% of healthcare institutes have introduced IoT empowered devices in their facilities. The most common use of IoT is to setup monitoring for patients Most respondents in the same review, about 80% are inclined to explore IoT as a means to drive innovation in their line of business Vodafone, has recently published a white paper depicting how IoT will allow people to align themselves to their medical treatment schedules. The technology revolution driven by IoT will impact millions of individuals and can possibly result in savings of hundreds of billions in the US every year
  6. 6. Benefits of Beacons in Healthcare
  7. 7. Beacons Adding a Layer of Simplicity • Beacons render a layer of simplicity to the complex IoT ecosystem. • Beacons are plain, low energy bluetooth devices or BLE, communicating with smartphones & other devices silently. • This tiny wonder collects data from the real world and fuses it into the virtual, only to be contended by a close competitor Google Physical Web
  8. 8. Optimized Operations Beacons push the healthcare & hospital operations when it comes to automation, innovation & improving productivity 01 The level of integration beacons have with IoT allows operational healthcare make a move towards modernization empowered with technology 02 Beacons are also very effective when it comes to record retrieval, an essential part of hospital operations 03
  9. 9. Easy Navigation Beacon app directs patients via push notifications to the designated waiting areas, or provide them the status of their appointments while waiting at the center. If the patient has already received a prescription, beacons help guide them to the in-house pharmacy If the patient has been prescribed a specific service like a X-ray or MRI, beacons help direct to the correct area. With the right app, beacons are capable to serve as a ready reference guide for patients across the hospital. Beacons also guide visitors to specific departments thus improving productivity and optimizing the cost of signage or published guides as well as displayed maps of the institute
  10. 10. Digitized Access Control • Beacons also assist in setting up automation when it comes to accesses • Department managers can setup specific entry accesses for designated doctors or healthcare staff • At each access point, setting up bluetooth tags also enable record or identity management & requisite availability of data
  11. 11. Patient Tracking The usage of beacon technology to track patients within a hospital is obvious. Beacons are integrated with apps that in turn are synced to wearables such as wrist bands or accessories. 01 Integrating beacons with wearables enables two-way communication, it guides patients as well as helps collect patient data, specifically health vitals. 02 However, even outside of the hospital, beacons are appropriately installed to trigger app notifications in case of an emergency, which places a call to the nearest hospital transmitting patient location data. This feature is of particular use for elderly patients, or for those that require constant supervision. In fact, the most common & obvious use case of Beacon & IoT combination in healthcare is to deploy extensive patient monitoring. 03
  12. 12. Asset Tracking Bluetooth tags setup around hospital buildings and near all asset repositories ensure there is a regular check on each & every critical possession in the hospital. Considering the chaotic nature of healthcare operations, there is a possibility for hospital assets or equipment to be inaccessible when really required. Hospital assets are also not free from the risk of theft, making beacon- based asset tracking deployment important.
  13. 13. Analytics Considering their outreach in varied areas, beacons are exposed to a large amount of data such as patient movement, preferences, billing frequency, visit behavior all along with physiological data 1 Integrating beacons with analytics & big data help the healthcare enterprise or hospital with decision making insights so very critical in this competitive era 2
  14. 14. Improving Patient Experiences
  15. 15. Undoubtedly, Beacons and iBeacons are Grabbing Attention & Enticing Patrons all across the domains and are all set to improve the overall patient experience in the traditional healthcare centers
