Ericsson will be launching a pilot project to supply and manage its mobile health solution which will be a crossbreed of the latest mobile information and communications technologies and healthcare.
“The solution will enable automated collection and real–time monitoring of the patients’ vital signs, such as heart and breathing rates, oxygen saturation and blood pressure through sensors and send it wirelessly to doctor,” Director Business Development e–Health Ericsson Rainer Herzog said.
The patients only need to be fitted with health sensors that will collate and securely transmit the required data via Bluetooth to a communication module, which is connected to the hospitals’ servers using wireless technology. The information stored in the servers can be conveniently accessed by designated hospital staff from their workstations.
This will significantly increase the productivity and efficiency levels of hospital staff as they will be able to keep track of patients’ in real time, remotely and quickly.
