Merge Africa - Medical IoT Solutions

In a constantly connected world great things are possible with Internet of Medical Technology.

The Future of Healthcare

Constant collaboration, reliable communication, patient and data management make healthcare one of the most complex industries to deploy IoT solutions and really improve healthcare delivery. There is no doubt a shift happening and an adoption of IoT and tracking solutions to increase effective data management and governance, safe and efficient accessibility and operating systems.

IoT technology helps hospital administrators improve efficiency and reduce errors. It’s a powerful addition to healthcare and will help us move from reactive and acute care to preventative and predicative medicine.

Technology advancements will move us away from solutions designed for the masses to solutions with personalized treatments and more relevant care.

There are a lot of factors influencing the shift from demographics and ageing populations to more prevalent chronic disease and shorter hospital stays with longer follow-up periods post hospitalization.

Merge Africa can assist with developing patient monitoring systems designed to help you improve patient care, improve clinical performance, and lower costs.

We strive to create integrated solutions to work with your hospitals IT environment to capture and store patient data and feed it directly to your EMR. With a streamlined system clinicians can access the right data from anywhere and have access to relevant, detailed information they need to make informed care decisions.

There is an increased demand and opportunity for improvement when it comes to the use of digital solutions, communication tools, the Internet of Things, robotics, personal smartphones, telemedicine, artificial intelligence and cloud solutions.

Many IoT devices require high performance, and resilient internet connection is vital and can assist with delivering improved patient care resulting in improved patient health.

5G is definitely a foundation on which we can build high tech and efficient frameworks for ‘smart’ hospitals and benefit from the software solutions that are implemented. At Merge, we focus on the advances of location based IoT solutions, asset management and patient flow.

Most hospital should be implementing an IoT strategy to make use of cutting edge technology to improve their services and operation.

In healthcare, technology can be used to improve many aspects of service delivery from providing efficient communication and collaboration for doctors, staff and teams to ensuring quality care, safety and security within a facility and optimal management, control and privacy in terms of patient data and medical advisory.
