Is the concept of SMART cities new? Not at all; there are now hundreds of Smart Cities in this world. South Korea has actualized its vision of a smart city, introduced Songdo and cost more than $40 billion. Sensors across cities track everything from temperatures to traffic conditions to help alert residents.
Just a few nebulous thoughts were raised about what type of medical services I receive in a Smart City. Is the concept of SMART cities new? Not at all; there are now hundreds of Smart Cities in this world. South Korea has actualized its vision of a smart city, introduced Songdo and cost more than $40 billion. Sensors across cities track everything from temperatures to traffic conditions to help alert residents. A great example is Songdo, which is built with eco-friendly buildings in open areas as well as telepresence in classrooms.
Islamabad Capital Smart City aims to be the Pakistan's first smart urban area where all smart facilities would be available. Though it's a small area within the capital Islamabad, this remains a high order with 3 main priorities which consist: caring for the elderly within the communities they live in, mobility and data sharing.
Singapore is a fast-aging city that expects to reach one in five by 2030 as a proportion of senior citizens. The 33 million elderly people in Japan currently make up 25% of the total population. All these focus areas are related to healthcare. To make connections between everyone, in particular elderly people with their children and communities we need sensors, software, and all kinds of mobile devices. As the elder people are less mobile, their prescriptions and physicians must be easily accessible online. The time that is saved on travel is used even by young and middle-aged people to receive medical reports.
People would prefer nurses, but they would be scarce. Robot nurses would substantially lighten daily burdens. Just imagine someone who folds down a sandwich and quickly picks a drink.
Smart residential buildings with integrated healthcare are ideal. At a simple level, chiropractor beds are mechanized to flip at the button while multi-pointed jets speed up hygiene routines. Intelligent waste disposal are built into each block of apartments on a community level. Instant reuse of water might even reduce the consumption of labor and energy.
Single fitness equipment is sufficient to measure your steps, your heart rate, your blood pressure and blood glucose. These measurements are transmitted in to one’s personal health database which is retrieved by approved specialist.
Air filter purifiers should be compatible with the transport systems. Busses and trains are polluting the air and bring crowds every day. They should clean up the air exchanged by passengers and diminish some of the pollution. In relation to excessive traffic noise and others, devices are installed at planned sites that emit white sound that cancels harsh sounds.
Healthcare is the leading services, and in every region a community with a healthy population is balanced. Let's see what intelligent healthcare is and what technology is important to it.
Increasingly, cities are seen not only as the engines of innovation and growth, but also as the rate at which solutions to bad problems can be sought to ease their citizens ' lives. Therefore, municipal governments are developing appropriate and creative solutions to such complex issues through innovation efforts. Smart healthcare is one of all the facilities for citizens in a smart city, as a city with healthy citizens in all spheres is balanced.
The health sector has undoubtedly progressed over the last few years, but it is essential to take care of the people more quickly and efficiently, given the growing population and urban lifestyles.
‘Smart Health Technology' blends intelligent technology and health with modern mobile phones. Nowadays, various projects have been created for a broader view of health and wellbeing, which has given a wider focus to smart wearable devices, such as fitness tracker or bands. Such devices are intelligent in the sense that they not only supervise health but provide solutions at the right time, if necessary. The foundation for intelligent health care is intelligent devices. Smart Health software integrates and works with information from sensors that can be used for more medical care and approaches by physicians, scientists and health workers. Such digital records save patients and hospitals time and money, as they not only provide personalized care, but also give precautionary measures by gathering data in real time.
Connectivity provides the basis for intelligent city services. It also provides intelligent healthcare. It enables to communicate easily with administrations and helps government officials to collect additional health data from their citizens which can then be used for city and service planning, making public health a priority.
Internet of Things (IoT) in healthcare provides valuable insights through the connection of data collected from smart devices and sensors. In health observation, the technology can play a major role and can help to detect health problems early on. It also assists in the rapid incorporation, tracking of the condition of the patient, and then communicating the information in real time to doctors and staff, thus increasing the efficiency of the health system overall. The way we track the health of people is changing in the near future with personal IoT-based health inspectors.
After the health data is collected, it is evaluated and handled for perfect treatment with the help of Artificial Intelligence computerization.
With the help of Artificial Intelligence different tasks of healthcare like analyzing laboratory tests, CT scan etc. are performed. Artificial Intelligence based applications are used to detect the condition of patients, which is very helpful in medical consultation.
Blockchain technology is renowned for data storage and incorporation of health data, as well as other tasks such as transactions and insurance, i.e. Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum.
Using electronic and mobile technologies is very beneficial in the implementation of healthcare services in urban areas. IoT has already brought a revolution in the fields of transport, security, energy and communications.
In a Smart City like Capital Smart City Islamabad, Pakistan who are going to design a Healthcare City to provide better healthcare services, medical and pharmaceutical companies, healthcare professionals, researchers and city managers are working on solutions and IOT equipments to minimizing the response time. In healthcare city quick emergency services, minimizing overcrowding in hospitals and provide remote treatment and collaborate with doctors around the globe.
Smart Wearable Devices:
Pulse Oximeter: this device helps in observing heartbeat rate, blood vessel oxygen immersion, breath rate, perfusion record. It also checks and determines oxygen and hemoglobin present in the blood. They are suitable items and anybody can work them by putting them on fingertip or earlobe. They are helpful in basic crisis care, patients with respiratory or heart issues and rest issue. Experts like pilots, hikers, competitors who need to check oxygen level at high elevations or screen physical action can viably utilize this item.
Smart watches: These devices will help people monitor fitness activities in addition to making calls and texts. They come with batteries for long life. You have onscreen training sessions, information about burnt calories, active minutes, patterns of sleep, pulse monitor, track range, etc. Almost every major smart phone company develops these watches for its growing market. 3D Printed Pills: In 2015, the US Food and Drug Administration first took such pills forward. Spritam was the first drug for children and adults with epilepsy. The first medicine was called. These are pore tablets that, like any other drug, dissolve with a sip of water. The ZipDose technology used to produce them enables more precise dosing and compact packaging. Medicines can be made near patients with 3D pills and tailored for their care.
Smart Contact Lenses: Google produces these lenses and supports people with poor eyesight and diabetic issues. We measure the level of glucose from the eye's water. Natural focus of the eye is restored with the help of this lens. Smart Bras: With its help the status of women’s health is determine. These are equipped with sensors that monitor breast tissue and alert us to signs of cancer. These are connected to an app that collects data and informs breast health users about the right care. These also aid in the control of fitness, respiratory and heart rate movements.
