183 – Bluetooth devices for remote patient monitoring; Craig Simmonds, Propell (iHealth)
Doing effective telehealth is much more than just spinning up a zoom call or picking up the phone and speaking with a patient. It’s a good start, but all that’s happening there is a replication of what happens in a bricks and mortar clinic during a consultation.
Missing from that picture is all the monitoring that goes on – all of the insights that a clinician needs in order to make an informed decision or provide advice or even make a diagnosis.
With more virtual care and telemedicine going on, having these indications provided to a clinician in a way they can rely on them is critical.
So in this episode today we’re going to explore this world of using bluetooth connected devices in remote monitoring for patients.
Craig is the CEO and Founder of Propell, who distribute iHealth in Australia; the global leader in consumer focused mobile health devices, which are used across hospitals, PHNs and pharmacies across Australia to help patients better manage chronic disease.
In this episode you’ll hear about:
- Remote monitoring before and during COVID
- The importance of robust integration and consumer friendliness for connected medical devices
- The adoption of technology by different generations – which age bracket adopts technology best when it comes to healthcare?
- What the future looks like for Remote Patient Monitoring and bluetooth connected devices.
- Lots more
