The growing prevalence of the Internet of Things, together with plummeting component costs, has made it possible to connect just about anything, from the very simple to the very complex, and to offer remote access, sensing, control, and monitoring. These technologies make it possible for healthcare providers and patients to work together to improve health in novel ways that were previously unimaginable. A critical element in this new model is that focusing on what is happening with the patient when they are not in front of a health professional, using sensors to deliver remote monitoring and a more complete picture of an individual’s health, is more likely to have an impact than focusing on the brief amount of time spent during in-person medical visits.
