What Is Digital Sensor Medicine And How Do We Use It | Sensors Magazine

From www.sensorsmag.com

"Technology continues to make inroads into all the sectors of our life. We have been able to integrate technology as an integral part of health, education, sports transportation, and all the other sectors of our lives and the results are amazing. The latest in this regard is the approval of digital sensor medicines for use in the United States. 

There has been an ongoing research for a very long time by Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co Ltd. The research is centered on how to input a tracking device in pills, so that they can monitor whether patients are taking their medicines in the proper manner. This yielded results, as the firm came up with the technology in the drug named Abilify, which is a pill for schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. The pill comes with a tracking device that was created by the Proteus Digital Health, and US health regulators have approved it.


Digital sensor medicine systems allow doctors to measure whether their patients are taking the pills on schedule or not. With it, a new system of monitoring medicine compliance is being born in the United States. The prediction is, that soon, there may exist the possibility of applying this in many other therapeutic areas.

Digital sensor medicine systems are expected to be used to monitor and manage the treatments of those people whose medicine routines are far from being simple. This will be good for patients suffering from heart conditions and diabetes. There has been a very huge problem of poor compliance to drug regimes in the US and the world at large. This is more prevalent in patients’ suffering chronic disease, and this system is meant to address it.


The pills are produced with digital sensors that are just about the size of a grain of salt. Whenever the sensor is swallowed, and stomach acids get it wet, the digital sensor becomes activated. With the acid wetness, a circuit is completed between the copper and magnesium coatings on the sides of the medicine and it generates a small electric charge. This electric charge will in turn send a message to a patch that could be worn on the patient’s body. This patch in turn will transmit this information to a mobile app on a smartphone. It is from the smartphone that ingestion of the medicine is tracked by the patient and the doctor.


What the FDA Is Saying About It?

For the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), it will be very useful to track mental-illness patients’ medicine ingestion activities. Be aware, it has not been ascertained if tracking the ingestion of pills has the possibility of making people take their pills. But the sure thing is that it will tell whether the medication was taken or not.


The FDA has given their full-time support to the use of this fresh technology for drug prescriptions and will work with firms to arrive at how it will help the prescribers and their patients. However, it should be noted that the authorization to try out the digital sensor on medicines came only in 2012. But the Abilify schizophrenia pill, which was the first to put the sensor in the pill, has been on the market since 2002."

IoT Adoption Tracks with Increased Spending on Population Health  #esante #hcsmeufr #digitalhealth

From healthitanalytics.com

Healthcare organizations investing in population health management are also exploring the role of the Internet of Things for reducing the burdens of chronic disease.



January 02, 2019 - The Internet of Things (IoT) is getting bigger every day as consumers and providers continue to adopt smart technologies and devices at a rapid clip.


From wearable fitness trackers to ingestible sensors tucked into tiny pills, the IoT is creating unprecedented opportunities for providers to help individuals maintain wellness or monitor chronic diseases in innovative, unobtrusive ways.


According to a new market report from Zion Market Research, the global market for smart medical products, such as smart pills and RFID-based technologies, will be pushing $67 billion by 2024 as healthcare providers and vendors search for new pathways to improve population health and reduce spending on chronic disease.


The smart medical products market forms a small but substantial subset of the larger Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) segment, which one 2016 report predicted would top $410 billion by 2022.


This represents a healthy 9.5 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from a 2017 baseline of $35.6 billion.

“Smart healthcare products improve outcomes related to diagnostic tools and enhance patient treatment along with improving their quality of life,” explains the report.


“According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, about 40 million deaths were due to chronic ailments, i.e., 70 percent deaths worldwide.”


Healthcare providers and policymakers are investing significant resources in reducing the financial and clinical burdens of chronic disease by developing population health management techniques – and adopting their attendant technologies.


In a separate report, Zion Market Research notes that the global population health management market is expected to expand from $16.5 billion in 2017 to $86.3 billion in 2024, a CAGR of more than 25 percent.


 “Some significant features of population health management include the access of comprehensive longitudinal patient record, integrated user experience, the transition to proactive and preventative care, effective coordinate care, identification of at-risk patients, and chronic conditions management,” the report states.

“The key role of population health management is to provide a significant platform to deliver effective care management for intensive or long-term care by engaging with their patients, tracking patients’ progress, assigning tasks, and performing necessary risk assessments for future care planning. The demand for efficient patient care system platform is fueling the demand for population health management market globally.”


IoT devices are likely to comprise a critical component of the digital population health platform, as will the underlying analytics and interoperability tools that enable the collection and synthesis of data from multiple devices.


“Population health management simplifies the complex task of data collection from different care settings along with data accessibility through various application program interface (APIs),” the report says.

“This integrated information at one place allows the consumers to make informed and reliable decisions of delivering effective healthcare solutions.”


Developing population health solutions that are both provider- and consumer-friendly will be a major challenge for vendors and other entities hoping to take advantage of the crossover market.

End-users have often complained that IoT data is simply too voluminous and too difficult to navigate within the confines of a typical patient-provider relationship, rendering the data functionally useless for making decisions about individual health.


With expected sales of more than 430 million Internet of Things devices a year by the middle of the coming decade, however, healthcare providers and software developers will need to tackle the problem as quickly as possible.


Artificial intelligence and machine learning will no doubt play an important role in consuming and processing these vast datasets, as will innovative infrastructure management techniques such as edge computing and network visibility solutions.


Organizations that implement the infrastructure and data management strategies to help them harness the IoT in a population health management context are likely to gain a competitive edge over their peers.


IoT data can fuel predictive analytics and risk stratification, the basis for identifying individuals in need of targeted interventions; the data can also alert providers to sudden changes in health status, which may help prevent a costly hospital admission or emergency department visit.


These proactive population health management capabilities will be key for organizations looking to reduce unnecessary spending and succeed in risk-based contracting or other value-based initiatives.


“Population health management supports the sharing of actions and tasks to ensure full planning and allow the implementation of patient-centric care plans, and leverage the tools to provide well-coordinated care experience,” the report says.


“Proper planning results in the identification of patients that require proactive intervention and assign the necessary tasks and actions to ensure that they receive appropriate and timely care. All these features are likely to fuel the global population health management market in the future.”
