Smart medical devices, from pulse oximeters and ECG monitors to fitness wearables, make healthcare more accessible and are improving lives around the world. But developing these products is challenging. Crowded RF environments, regulatory requirements, and security are just a few things device manufacturers must overcome. Our broad portfolio of multiprotocol wireless modules and SoCs simplifies this process and accelerates time-to-market.
The modern healthcare system is undergoing a global transformation, and we’re all being impacted. Some of the key drivers fueling the need for digital transformation include:
The number of people over the age of 60 will double by 2050. With more people living longer, it’s important that we improve the way we manage illness and chronic diseases without adding strain to the healthcare system.
Global healthcare costs are growing dramatically. The WHO estimated that the government health expenditure per capita rose 22% between 2008-2018 (USD 661 => 517). The current healthcare system can’t cope with the rapidly increasing demand.
The COVID-19 pandemic caused many losses of lives and stalled the global economy for two years. Most health systems with outdated infrastructure experienced considerable strain. Preparing for next time is crucial.
The modern healthcare system is facing a challenge: how to to provide health services to more people while the costs of clinical care are growing and capacity is shrinking. A radical transformation towards more robust and efficient health systems is required.
A resilient and well-functioning health system requires:
IoT connectivity provides the buildings blocks to revolutionize healthcare and enable a wide range of life-saving applications. Hospital managers are equipped with the data needed to make well-versed decisions while streamlining previously unmanageable processes and minimizing human intervention. Smart medical devices, from pulse oximeters and ECG monitors to fitness wearables, make connected healthcare more accessible and are improving lives around the world. Developing these products is challenging. Crowded RF environments, regulatory requirements, and security are just a few things device manufacturers must overcome.
Develop secure, reliable, smart medical designs for any connected healthcare setting with our broad portfolio of multiprotocol wireless modules and SoCs. Simplify and future proof IoT medical design with:
With the highest transmission power and superior receiver sensitivity, we ensure reliable connectivity as well as maintaining high data rates with fewer retransmissions to save power and channel capacity.
Applications like location tracking tags for clinical equipment or call buttons for patients require intelligent low power design, sensing, and predicting battery life. We offer the lowest power consumption Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) SoCs on the market, and the smallest form-factor design of 4.6 x 7.9mm for Wi-Fi.
