Case Study: Improving patient care and reducing costs with M2M

Manfred Kube, Head of M2M Segment Marketing / Director Business Development mHealth, Gemalto | May 19, 2014
One of the technologies that has great potential to revolutionize patient and elderly care is machine-to-machine (M2M) communication technology.

Success Stories / Results

The Vignet M2M patient-enabled gateway system has been utilized by the U.S. National Institute of Health and other organizations to improve efficiency of patient care. The system has increased patient awareness, adherence to protocols, enabled patients to receive care in remote areas and it has shown potential to reduce health care costs.  

Conclusion

Vignet's mHealth solution provides an excellent example of the potential of M2M to transform the healthcare sector, and there is a growing trend that such systems will become more and more commonplace in the future as the evidence base regarding potential benefits grows. The market for smart home and smart health systems is projected to grow globally to $620.3m by 2019, and its efficiency is expected to save the world's healthcare systems up to $36 billion in expenses, according to Juniper Research[3].

Beyond healthcare, M2M is a market-proven technology which enables a vast number of different verticals from secure point-of-sale (POS) transactions, remote maintenance & control to building and industrial automation. M2M improves productivity of fleet operations, powers smart vehicle systems and connected car technology as well as ruggedized industrial PDAs for mobile work forces. In short, M2M opens up a whole new world of possibilities for enterprises, governments and people to improve communication, processes, productivity and efficiency.
