Smart Pill Technology-based Diagnosis
Smart pills, also known as ingestible sensors or digital pills, are ingestible capsules containing miniaturized electronic devices or sensors that diagnose, capture, and transmit data from within the body. They are part of the rising technological innovations and provide unambiguous answers concerning GI and other health-related problems. The client wants to explore the recent innovations in the field of smart pill technology and focuses on implementing smart pill technology for diagnostic purposes in healthcare settings. The objective was also to assess this technology’s feasibility, benefits, and challenges.
Smart pills have the potential to transform the healthcare industry due to their excellent diagnostic and treatment abilities, but as everything has positives and negatives, smart pill technology also has some limitations and challenges, making implementing these technologies a bit difficult.
Some of the significant challenges associated with smart pill technologies are:
● Interpretation of data: Healthcare professionals require training and lessons to accurately interpret the data generated by these smart pills for effective diagnosis.
● Ethical concerns: Smart pill technology uses sensors and cameras embedded inside the pill, which raises privacy concerns regarding patients’ psychosis.
● Unintended treatment challenges: Smart pills may uncover health concerns, requiring careful management and treatment planning.
● Patient comfort and trust: Malfunctions or discomfort caused by smart pills can lead to losing faith and patient skepticism.
● Patient education: Extensive education is needed to ensure patients understand the purpose, benefits, and potential risks of smart pill usage.
Informed consent: Clear guidance and informed consent are necessary to ensure patients are aware of the risks and benefits of smart pill usage
