mHealth & Medical Devices
When everything is connected, people and cities get healthier. Battelle uses state-of-the-art analytics, monitoring and communication technologies to help cities improve healthcare access and efficacy and leverage the potential of connected medical devices.
Connected medical devices, mHealth apps and health analytics are making healthcare more effective, efficient and accessible. In the Smart City, intelligent devices and apps can help individuals stay connected to services and healthcare providers and provide deep insights into the quality and efficacy of healthcare and emergency services.
For example, imagine a mobile app that, with the touch of a button, connects a person with a medical emergency to emergency services, pinpoints their location, sends arrival information to the correct hospital, calls up Electronic Health Records for the treating physician, and notifies the patient’s primary care doctor. Or an analytical system that can predict adverse outcomes for hospital patients before they happen and proactively notify physicians so they can take corrective action.
Using smart city technologies and analytical insights, communities can:
- Improve citizen health with smart, connected medical devices
- Monitor and improve the quality of healthcare systems
- Improve emergency service response times, access and efficiency
- Provide better services for special populations such as the elderly or disabled
