Can Smart Cities Solve Overcrowding in China?

 

IoT exists to solve the problems in the world. Today’s episode focuses in on two areas where IoT could be incredibly beneficial: overcrowded cities and healthcare. Paul Doherty from The Digit Group joins the show to explain how smart city technology can help stem the tide of overcrowding in China. In our second feature on the show, Irma Rastegayeva speaks to Shelby Skrhak about IoT advancements in the field of healthcare.

How Mass Migration is Pushing Smart City Technology in China

Mass migration into urban centers is causing overcrowding in some of the largest cities in the world, specifically in China. How can smart city technology begin to help solve that problem? Paul Doherty, the Founder and CEO of The Digit Group, joined the podcast to explain the solutions and where they’re heading in the future.

“The idea is to provide these environments for great innovation…so that people will feel comfortable enough to start to settle down and raise their families,” says Doherty. The goal here is to add this technology to the less populated cities so people can build comfortable lives there, rather than moving to the already overcrowded city centers.

Recapping the Largest Healthcare and IoT Conference

More than 43,000 people attended the 2019 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference, — HIMSS for short — that took place Feb. 11-15 in Orlando. Among them was Irma Rastegayeva. She is an industry-noted expert in Connected Health and IoT, and co-founder of eVIRa Health, a social media consultancy for healthtech startups.

Rastegayeva points out several applications of technology and Iot that really impressed her in this episode. One was ETHAN that stands for Emergency Telehealth and Navigation that’s been rolled out in the city of Houston.

“What I was particularly impressed was the clear results,” Rastegayeva tells Marketscale IoT. “Houston emergency center receives 9,000 calls daily, but it turns out only 30% of those are true emergencies. When they’re able to properly triage and offer guidance to patient, they save a lot of money and help improve the patient experience so they don’t have to go to an emergency room and spend 8 hours there.”
