3 Benefits of Smart Personal Medical Devices

When it comes to personal healthcare and the medical profession, accuracy, and timing matter; having the correct data at the right time can drastically improve the decision-making process and is especially important when an individual's health is involved. After all, increasing the probability of favorable health outcomes is what all parties want.   

CMI Health is dedicated to developing and providing affordable, high-performance medical devices for home and clinical use. Read on for three benefits of having a smart, personal medical device readily accessible. 

Rapid, Real Time Identification of Anomalies or Changes in Health Condition

Perhaps the most significant benefit of having an intelligent personal medical device available is its ability to alert a user to a change or anomaly in health conditions. Smart medical devices not only aid in the rapid identification of any change in user health but can often provide invaluable data that allows a user to make an informed health decision in real-time. 

Previously, healthcare professionals and facilities held the sole responsibility for identifying, diagnosing, treating, and monitoring a patient. However, the rise of personal medical devices has made it possible for individuals to take responsibility and actively monitor their health. 

Monitoring and evaluating health data can provide a benchmark for understanding and identifying any health anomalies that may arise. Personal medical devices make it simple to measure and track health data and present the information in an easy-to-understand way. 

Patient monitoring devices, including oximeters, capnography equipment, and spirometers, are beneficial for collecting information necessary for crucial decisions. The right decision made at the right time can often lead to a higher probability of a positive health outcome. 

Lower Costs and Reduced Workload

High-quality healthcare solutions are often expensive to develop, costly to maintain and involve many resources to fully deploy. Successfully leveraging all moving parts of diagnoses, treatment, and patient monitoring is complex and often reliant upon precise timing and informed action.  

Health monitoring devices make it easy for medical professionals to assess an individual's current health condition in real-time and, in turn, make an informed decision when it matters. However, these devices prove most beneficial when they are placed in the hands of the patient and used consistently on a day-to-day basis.   

Unfortunately, the medical staff can only address a limited number of issues at one time or place, making the efficient use of available resources critical.  This is where the patient’s ability to collect and share their health data can become incredibly advantageous.   

Personal medical devices give the individual user the power to take responsibility for their health. This helps decrease the reliance on medical personnel for diagnosis, treatment, and long-term health monitoring.  

Access to a patient’s health data makes it that much easier for medical staff to diagnose and treat a patient quickly and efficiently as possible. This also gives physicians greater visibility into a patient’s recent health history, allowing them to make the most informed decision possible in diagnosis and treatment.   

Increased Patient Engagement and Control

Patient control and engagement have received increasing attention and discussion in recent years. Engaged patients are more likely to quickly inform family members and medical providers of crucial health changes or developments. This is especially important to those with chronic health conditions that require long-term monitoring.   

Engaged patients are proactive. They regularly communicate with their healthcare providers and inform them of any changes or anomalies. This can aid in the preemptive identification of health threats before noticeable symptoms begin to develop.  

Health issues are time-sensitive, which conflicts with limited resources. Often disengaged patients will wait until after developing adverse symptoms to inform medical professionals of a change in their health. Alternatively, disengaged patients rarely communicate with medical providers and must be prodded to provide information. This retrograde address of medical conditions places healthcare providers at a disadvantage in diagnosis and treatment.   

Therefore, encouraging patient engagement and equipping patients with the tools to monitor their health is advantageous. The reality is medical professionals simply cannot be with a patient 24/7, whether the patient is at home or in a healthcare facility.   

What CMI Health Offers You  

Since COVID-19, it’s essential than ever to stay on top of your health and take advantage of the remote timing. We offer several smart personal medical devices for staying on top of your health. Our products directly contribute to efficient medical data gathering, improved resource allocation, and positive patient outcomes. Examples of these include our:  

For chronic respiratory diseases, it’s worth investing in Pulse Oximeters and Spirometers. Even if you’re Asymptomatic, Pulse Oximeters indicate low oxygen levels (Yale Medicine). If you’re at risk for COVID-19, they can help monitor shortness of breath.  

If you have high blood pressure, investing in a Blood Pressure Cuff is the right move. Our PC-102 device measures blood pressure, pulse rate, and Sp02.
