Connected Care in Emerging Technologies

Executive Summary

In emerging economies, access to healthcare services is limited and expensive. Consider doctor-to-patient ratios: Afghanistan has only 2 doctors for every 10,000 patients, India has 6, China has 18, the United States has 24, and Switzerland has 41 (Source: World Bank, 2010 data). To address this discrepancy, doctors in developing countries need tools to help them prioritize time among patients and deliver care efficiently.

Project Highlights

Connected care technologies are bridging this gap by giving doctors remote access to patient data. In this article, we present an example proof of concept (PoC) based on the Intel® Quark™ processor. The PoC aggregates patient data and uploads it to the cloud, allowing doctors to analyze patient needs and optimize their schedules accordingly. What’s more, the PoC can be transformed into a low-cost, production- ready design with minimal time and effort – thus creating an effective solution for developing economies.
