IoT for health at home

Hospital at home

Hospital at home is the concept of traditional care delivered in the home environment as an alternative to a hospital stay or to allow early discharge. Examples of this are clinical monitoring of chronic conditions such as COPD and diabetes.

To enable the move to home-based healthcare, IoT medical technologies are essential to allow clinicians to monitor patients in real time to understand changes in health condition.

IoT technologies can be used for

  • Connected diagnostics and point of care testing
  • Medical equipment monitoring
  • Oxygen tank monitoring
  • Telecare alarm monitoring
  • Activity/falls monitoring
  • Cyber security
  • Resilient communications for healthcare

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Health and social care

Hospital at home is one of the health and social care subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.


Sector knowledge

Within the FutureTech programme, CENSIS met with people from different sectors to hear their ideas about the transformative potential of IoT.

IoT technology will transform business operations across Scotland and impact every sector of the economy.

The Scottish Government-funded FutureTech workshops were held across Scotland throughout 2019 in the subject areas of

  • Food and drink
  • Health and social care
  • Smart towns and cities
  • Transport
  • Tourism
