Roman Chernyshev, SVP in the Healthcare and Life Sciences Practice at DataArt, spoke with Raconteur about the role of wearable and implanted IoT-enabled devices in preventing, diagnosing and treating diseases. The resulting article was picked up by The Times of London.
“It is a matter of time before medical devices collect continuously vital data from millions of patients around the world in real time and simultaneously compare them. These developments will change how diseases are diagnosed. Medical conditions will be predicted as a result of data and constant monitoring of health information.
Technological advancements will result in healthcare being everywhere, although it will be almost invisible. One IoT device that is being developed will be used to prevent metabolic diseases such as diabetes. An implant will constantly collect and analyse blood data from diabetes sufferers and independently inject insulin without the need for human interaction or prompting.”
