Remote patient monitoring is developing into a new standard of health care. Remote monitoring capabilities are already enabling more convenient care, resulting in better patient outcomes and allowing physicians to serve patients more effectively. Supporting this shift is the availability and affordability of sensors that perform physiological measurements, along with wireless technology and connectivity necessary to support remote monitoring programs. However, for elderly patients, these new technologies present some unique challenges in order to meet the needs of this growing population.
Health data can more accurately and completely reflect lifestyle choices, health history, symptoms, medication, treatment information, and biometric data such as heart rate, blood glucose, blood pressure, temperature, oxygen levels, and weight. In this webinar, Walt Maclay will discuss the many challenges in performing these measurements and how new technologies are dramatically reducing the cost of these sensors. Walt will also provide an overview of the current trends and challenges for these wearable devices, and what he expects in the future. The webinar will include resources, driving forces, and the latest trends for new technology development.
