Remote Healthcare Monitoring & Home Monitors In Managing Health
The unforeseen circumstances of the past year have resulted in the surge of demand for home healthcare monitoring. This trend has revolutionized preventive healthcare for people of all age groups specifically led by the middle-aged. Also known as physiological monitoring, this method of monitoring health involves the use of home health devices and other digital technologies that can be used to assess and capture health-related data. Remote home healthcare is penetrating geographies across a wide segment and serving people of a wide age group. The main aim is to minimize the number of deaths or hospitalizations happening as a result of preventable diseases like CVDs.
