Sample Sentences & Example Usage
Imagine the kind of data we could capture if patient monitors were as small as a dime. As sensor technology evolves, the industry will move toward more unobtrusive monitoring options that will be able to capture patient vitals and other data from sensors embedded into clothing or other materials, we could give patients a robe or necklace as soon as they enter the hospital, and monitor their journey across the health continuum, allowing clinicians to make more informed diagnosis and effective treatment plans. This kind of technology can also be critical in identifying physiological changes from a distance, making it easier to monitor patient traffic, especially during an epidemic.
