IMPACT OF AI IN INTERNET OF MEDICAL THINGS FOR HEALTH CARE DELIVERY
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of wireless, interconnected, and networked digital devices that can gather, send, and store data without the need for human or computer interaction. The Internet of Things has a lot of promise for expediting and improving health care delivery by proactively predicting health issues and diagnosing, treating, and monitoring patients both in and out of the hospital. Understanding how established and emerging IoT technologies may help health systems deliver safe and effective treatment is becoming increasingly critical. The purpose of this viewpoint paper is to present an overview of existing IoT technology in health care, as well as to describe how IoT devices are improving health service delivery and how IoT technology can alter and disrupt global healthcare in the next decade. The promise of IoT-based health care is explored further to theorize how IoT can increase access to preventative public health services and help us migrate from our existing secondary and tertiary health care systems to a more proactive, continuous, and integrated approach. The intersection of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) for patient monitoring and chronic care management and the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming more promising than ever as the adoption of telemedicine continues to grow dramatically. Connected devices generate huge volumes of data based on real-time measurements of patient vitals, which is delivered to cloud-based applications that are monitored by medical specialists in virtual contact centres. The policy is applied per-patient, and healthcare providers receive warnings and messages when a patient's heart rate, oxygen level, glucose level, blood pressure, or other measurement reaches a set threshold. Depending on the sort of telemedicine and telehealth platforms in use, this data is tracked and acted upon by specialists who monitor many patients for many different practices, and in other circumstances, this data is sent directly to the provider. AI in healthcare, as well as other crucial technologies are essential for resolving the issue and producing future prosperity.
