1.) There are no systems
2.) There is no comprehensive platform for wellness monitor
3.) Transaction cost and monitoring costs have to be very low.Philips Motiva and Intel Health Guide are platforms for chronic healthcare assistance but these are yet to be comprehensive.
At the plane of sensors,
1.) They need to be small
2.) They need to be anywhere and everywhere
3.) You need a reliable network to collect data
4.) Smartphones/watches can act as gateways
5.) HW based gateways cannot scale.
We need to use consumer grade electronics in healthcare. The proliferation of medical grade electronics will take a lot of time to penetrate the huge untapped market.
We need to monitor lifestyle for wellness, both physical health and the mental health at that time.
IOT in healthcare,
1.) The device cannot be clunky
2.) The device needs to be embedded to day to day life like sensors in car seats, bed etc.
3.) Wellness providers need to understand that it is a continuum and detection of deviation from trajectory of wellness in the key.
4.) There has been a good beginning.Work needs to happen on cheap and ubiquitous sensing.
5.) Data is sensitive, we need a guideline for preserving privacy.
6.) New business models for healthcare need to be encouraged, as traditional model might not help in penetration and profitability.
7.) Aim should be to influence consumer behavior to use the device
8.) Healthcare solutioning should be for health preservation and wellness monitoring.
