The Internet of Things are digital tools that enable patients and providers to stay connected by exchanging data in new and exciting ways. The advent of these tools, such as wearables, allow healthcare providers to monitor patients in the home setting by collecting critical health information in real time. This allows for earlier intervention and ultimately improves patient outcomes and reduces overall healthcare costs. These tools can also improve healthcare access for patients in rural areas who otherwise may not easily be able to get the care they need.
