Aeris IoT Services and Healthcare: Focus On the Patient

Oct 30, 2017

The Aeris IoT Services platform provides cellular connectivity and IoT solutions that enable medical device manufacturers and healthcare providers achieve the highest levels of patient engagement and medical adherence, with the lowest TCO, regardless of global location. The insights gained from an IoT solution enable new business models, market differentiation, operational efficiencies, and increased revenue generation.

Medical Adherence

Powered by the Aeris IoT Services platform, healthcare providers now can offer an unparalleled solution to help tackle the problem of medical adherence (sensors in blister packs, pill dispensers, and pill pouches can monitor patient’s medicinal intake) while providing patients with real-time intelligence and feedback, no matter where they live. Additionally, Aeris’ flexible approach allows healthcare providers to roll-out global solutions without the added headache of changing payment plans or being faced with untenable upfront fees. 

Nearly $300 billion is spent on missed medication and adherence issues in the U.S. alone, with the global pharmaceutical market’s revenue loss reaching approximately $564 billion.

Aeris IoT Services is able to provide solutions that increase the well-being of patients, reduce medical risk, avoid heavy upfront fees, and provide the lowest TCO possible.

Patient Monitoring

Aeris IoT Services are changing the way health services are delivered, allowing recipients to remain in their homes to receive care and avoid costly hospital stays. Companies are expanding in-home services, providing solutions for independent living specifically tailored for aging and disabled populations nationwide.

In 2010, there were 207 million people older than 75 years of age worldwide. This figure will rise to 265 million by 2020. As healthcare system demands increase with the aging population, a significantly higher burden will be placed on healthcare providers to achieve greater value within healthcare budgets.

The Aeris patient monitoring solution includes an open IoT / M2M application development environment with a cloud-based provisioning service. The Aeris IoT Services solution meets all market requirements for a robust, secure, feature-rich routing platform that supports customers in the field while allowing an aging population to remain in their homes for as long as possible.

Patient Benefits:

With Aeris IoT Services, patients have access to improved health outcomes and quality of life with real-time support and interventions. Extension of care at home shortens hospital stays, helps prevent emergencies, and reduce re-admissions. And, as advanced IoT healthcare devices improve medical adherence and patient care oversight, they also lower the overall price of care. Additionally, the Aeris IoT Services solution allows providers to expand their reach into underpopulated rural areas.

The bottom line is that remote monitoring can help ease the entire patient healthcare cycle while saving lives.

Care Provider Benefits:

For healthcare providers, Aeris IoT Services provides the monitoring needed to support the extension of clinical environments into a patient’s home, thereby reducing costly hospital stays. The automatic transmission of monitoring data from the device directly to the data center allows patient data to be accessed with increased frequency, thereby providing timelier treatments and better visibility into compliance practices, both of which impact insurance reimbursements.

The dependable, always-on, 24×7 connectivity options that Aeris provides (2G, 3G, 4G, LTE, and LTE-M options available based on needs) means faster and more secure data. A single dashboard manages all devices across CDMA and GSM networks, wherever they are deployed, ensuring standard operational processes and improved efficiency. And seamless plug-n-play operations, with no in-home installation requirements, means the system is ready to go out of the box—simply power on the device and it is active on the network. This, along with minimal upfront fees, brings about a significantly lower cost of entry, as well as a lower total cost over the long term.
