Wireless-based devices in healthcare improve patient engagement

A study from the Center for Connected Health indicates that wireless mobile technologies can positively impact patient engagement, clinical outcomes and operational workflow. This retrospective study was done under patients who were enrolled in the center’s Blood Pressure Connect program. Wireless-based devices recorded significantly more frequent blood pressure readings and data uploads than patients using modem-based devices. Kamal Jethwani, MD, MPH, of the Center for Connected Health, said; “Key success factor for wireless devices include ease-of-use, real-time transmission of data and increased device portability within patients’ home.”

We believe mobile devices that are used at the patients’ home can be provided much more often. These mobile healthcare devices help in diagnostics, support healthy living and inform patients about their health situation.
