Remote patient monitoring (RPM) is emerging as a vital method in numerous countries for handling the growing population of individuals with chronic illnesses. According to Statista, approximately 56 percent of surveyed hospitals stated that they had already integrated remote patient monitoring, while roughly a quarter had intentions to implement this technology within the next twelve months.
IoT drives continuous data collection, virtual medical support for patients with chronic conditions, and ultimately improves health management through timely delivered information. This relevance can be also proved by 1NCE 250+ Healthcare customers operating their projects across 36+ countries, with almost all of them referring to remote monitoring as one of the solutions for their institutions and treatment schemes.
