INTERNET OF MEDICAL THINGS (IOMT)Providing an essential addition to the reference material available in the field of IoMT, this timely publication covers a range of applied research on healthcare, biomedical data mining, and the security and privacy of health records. With their ability to collect, analyze and transmit health data, IoMT tools are rapidly changing healthcare delivery. For patients and clinicians, these applications are playing a central part in tracking and preventing chronic illnesses – and they are poised to evolve the future of care. In this book, the authors explore the potential applications of a wave of sensor-based tools—including wearables and stand-alone devices for remote patient monitoring—and the marriage of internet-connected medical devices with patient information that ultimately sets the IoMT ecosystem apart. This book demonstrates the connectivity between medical devices and sensors is streamlining clinical workflow management and leading to an overall improvement in patient care, both inside care facilities and in remote locations.
