5 Use Cases of Realtime Messaging in Healthcare

Push Technology - August 25, 2016

The healthcare industry is innovating to meet the demands of an aging and growing population. With innovation in connecting medical instruments, realtime monitoring, care connectivity and IoT, healthcare technologies benefit from data-efficient, realtime messaging. Here are five use cases for realtime messaging in healthcare.

Connecting Medical Instruments
Connecting medical devices into intelligent systems has the potential to deliver better quality of care, lower costs and improved patient outcomes.

It’s essential to deliver data reliably and securely with split-second speed, connects hundreds of thousands of devices over wired and wireless networks. Realtime messaging offers a common connectivity across many classes of intelligent machines and provides both performance and functionality.

Faster Emergency Response Saves Lives
In medical emergencies, faster response times lead to better outcomes. Data sent from emergency services to hospitals helps teams to prepare in advance, shortening time to treatment through proactive planning. Data efficient realtime messaging ensures essential patient information is available in a medical emergency.

IoT: Data Delivery & Synchronization
The healthcare Internet of Things market segment is poised to hit $117 billion by 2020. IoT drives remote patient monitoring, virtual doctor office visits, connected instruments and that’s barely scratching the surface. It all results in huge amounts of data being sent over the internet.

A realtime messaging solution needs to delivers an event-driven integration platform that offers predictable performance and latency, can intelligently distribute only necessary data, and ensures connections are secure.

Remote Patient Monitoring (Home, Hospital or on the Move)
Remote patient monitoring is the transmission of data from patients at home, in the hospital or while on the move. The goal is to leverage the proliferation of tablets, smartphones and cloud to improve care; patients receive better outcomes.

Drivers of remote monitoring include the US Affordable Care Act and the UK NHS promotion of Health IT Remote patient monitoring.

These devices and sensors are distributing significant amounts of data from front-end apps or devices across the internet to back-end systems. Push Technology integrates with these apps and devices to ensure efficient use of the system and response to emergencies in realtime. After all, a delay in data can cost valuable minutes critical for patients.

Care Team Connectivity
Care team connectivity demands realtime data flow across disparate, legacy and complex systems. Push Technology offers that reactive data layer to ensure everyone is connected.
