An Efficient Real-Time Monitoring to Manage Home-based Oxygen Therapy

IoT applications has some characteristics that set it apart from other fields mainly due to the multitude of parameters that it is possible to monitor. In medical homecare, these systems are able to make more efficient and safe the whole service supply chain. In the specific case of home-care oxygen therapy, continuous monitoring systems allow real-time access to critical data of clinical process and logistics, resulting in new levels of knowledge about the oxygen delivery process: actual oxygen consumption, system maintenance needs, deviations from the Therapeutic Plan defined by the physician. This paper presents an architecture developed to manage the oxygen therapy service efficiently focusing on the oxygen cylinder: it must be able to communicate differently with the different actors, depending on its status and position, and must convey this information to the person/company that will need accurate and timely information to ensure the success of the entire medical process
