M2M in the care and medical sector
How is M2M understood in the healthcare and care sectors?
The potential of M2M in health care
As in many industries, it is a great advantage in healthcare if devices or machines are able to communicate with each other. An example of this would be objects used in operations or certain devices on various wards that would normally have to be operated or monitored by humans. Another immense advantage is offered by sensors in mobile devices or in implants that monitor the state of health or certain bodily functions and transmit the determined values to a database.
- Emergency communication is speeded up
- Costs are reduced by saving time
- The flexibility of medical staff is increased
- Patient data is available at all times, as quickly as possible
- Patients can be located in an emergency
- Monitoring increases safety for patients

M2M care and health - areas of application
As already mentioned, automated communication can be used usefully in many industries. In the logistics or construction industry, for example, machines and devices can be controlled or monitored, and processes can be improved and accelerated in a wide variety of production processes. In general, it can be said that the use of M2M communication always makes sense when the exchange of data is more effective than the flow of information between people or employees.
M2M technology is used in care, health and medical areas to monitor the state of health and certain bodily functions and to transmit location data as quickly as possible.
