2. • ABSTRACT:
Digitalization in Healthcare industry has
immense potentialities in aspect of
providing easy, door step and effective
healthcare to the needy. It cuts down
the tedious process of waiting to see a
glimpse of the healthcare provider.
Digital opportunities pave way to
explore and monitor their own health
very closely, which is very satisfying and
has a great value in treatment process
and prognosis. Not only that patient can
understand the problems he is facing;
whereas he can closely monitor the
treatments administered and whereby
can be an active participant in
monitoring his own health. This care
improves the value of patient makes
healthcare easily accessible, fair,
increases the result of therapy, provides
integrated data and decreases cost.

3. • Digital healthcare network allows the data
to be accessible anywhere and everywhere
which reduces the repetition, minimises
faults, and makes the information complete
and useful when required. Different apps
are designed to safely & effectively store the
data and personalize it. The Electronic
health record (EHR), Cloud computing and
IoT are effective tools which help in
regulating the monitoring data online
through smart phones & by office of the
physician to provide immediate medical
care, online consultation and advise; this all
being possible by the degree of
connectedness with the provider. Physicians
thus need not depend solely on the
information provided by the patient. It
brings healthcare to be patient centric. This
digital transformation provides infinite
opportunities to patients and the

7. Healthcare providers adopt EHR
(Electronic health record)
systems for typical digital
transformation purposes in
Enhanced patient care
Improve patient safety
Designed to prevent and treat
Easy access to information
Minimizing (the risk of) errors
Improving staff productivity
Integration of data
8. • An Electronic Health Record
(EHR) is an electronic version
of a patients medical history.
• It include all of the key
administrative clinical data
relevant to that persons care
under a particular provider.
• It including demographics,
medical reports, progress
medications, vital signs, past
data and reports .
10. The EHR automates access to information and
streamline the clinician's workflow.
Provides patient centered approach
The EHR also has the ability to support other
care-related activities directly or indirectly
through various interfaces, including evidence-
based decision support, quality management
and outcomes reporting.
EHRs are the next step in the continued progress
of healthcare that can strengthen the
relationship between patients and clinicians.
The data, and the timeliness and availability of it,
will enable providers to make better decisions
and provide better care.
Supports medical tourism
Provides homecare scenario; i.e the living room
can be the care venu.
Provides data security and privacy.
11. For example, the EHR can improve
patient care by:
Reducing the incidence of medical
error by improving the accuracy
and clarity of medical records.
Making the health information
Reducing duplication of tests
Reducing delays in treatment
Keeps patients well informed to
take better decisions.
Reducing medical error by
improving the accuracy and clarity
of medical records.
12. • Digital transformation helps the Health
care workers and professionals to do what
their task of helping people efficiently.
• It provides a value based care i.e
increases patient value and decreases
• Provides one data base to answer all the
questions without missing any
information at the first instance itself.
• Makes better, fair, accessible healthcare a
• Brings a connected care approach (Mobile
apps, online data, networking)
• Fast and timely monitoring ensures health
and long life.
14. • Providing greater healthcare and
leverage to technology.
• Online consultation; help to save
time and let patient decide what
kind of care is best suited for him.
• Makes healthcare accountable,
knowledgeable, network sharing;
thus increasing result of therapy
and cut down unnecessary cost.
• A very personalized medical
approach to care to improve
efficacy and patient outcomes.
• Vast amount of data availability
makes accessible & easy research
work and decision making; also
helps predictive analysis and
acceptance of new therapy.
15. • Healthcare digitalization is
made more glorifying by
Apple and google
• Prepared to leverage digital
technology in health
• Keeps patient more
connected to capture data
and get benefit.

smart lens technology which
involves non-invasive sensors
embedded within contact lenses.

c) Exercise check
d) Blood pressure variations
18. 1. REAL TIME LOCATION SERVICES-
• Through IoT, doctors can use real
time location services and track the
devices used for treating patients.
Medical staff may sometimes keep
the devices in out-of-sight areas
which makes them difficult to find
when another medical staff comes
on the scene.
• eg: Medical apparatus and devices
like wheelchairs, scales, nebulizers,
pumps or monitoring
equipment can be tagged with
sensors and located easily with IoT.
2. Hand Hygiene Compliance
There are hand hygiene monitoring
systems that would detect the
degree of cleanliness in a
healthcare worker. This would
prevent hospital acquired
The interactions in the hand
hygiene monitoring systems are
done in real time and if a clinician
comes near a patient’s bed without
washing his hands, the device
would start buzzing.
20. 3. Improve Patient Journey
• Update infrastructure to provide
better patient experiences.
• IoT has made possible for the
medical staff to access patient
information from the cloud as long
as they are stored in there.
• The goal is to provide quality
medical care to patients, and by
spending a small amount on IT
infrastructure, hospitals can provide
good care to patients at affordable
• IoT aims to provide better patient
Room lighting through personal
Communicate to family and friends
through email services

21. 4. Remote Monitoring
• Remote health monitoring is an important
application of Internet Of Things. Through
monitoring, you can give adequate
healthcare to people who are in dire need
of help. Every day, lots of people die
because they do not get timely and prompt
medical attention. With IoT, devices fitted
with sensors notify the concerned
healthcare providers when there is any
change in the vital functions of a person.
• The collected patient information would be
stored in cloud. Through remote
monitoring, patients can significantly reduce
the length of hospital stay and perhaps,
even hospital re-admission.
• This kind of intervention is a boon to people
living alone, especially seniors. If there is
any interruption in the daily activity of a
person, alerts would be sent to family
members and concerned health providers.
These monitoring devices are available in
the form of “wearables” too.
