A research team from Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) has developed a Patient Portable Monitoring System (PPMS) tool into more cutting-edge technology, called Patient Monitoring System with Simplicity Integration (PASTI). With funding from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) SIGHT 2022 and contributions from four other universities, including Universitas Muhammadiyah Malang, Universitas Dian Nuswantoro, Universitas Bina Nusantara, and Universitas Katolik Atmajaya, the PASTI system represents a major leap forward in patient care. This innovation aims to improve the performance of healthcare professionals and lead to better outcomes for patients.
Dr. Wiwik Anggraeni S.Si., M.Kom., as the developer team explained that the development of PASTI involved six months of work, during which they created a web-based application to simulate the data transaction. It is designed as a modular system that can be easily integrated with existing information systems. This allowed them to demonstrate how PASTI could be used to monitor patients in real-time. PASTI is a prime example of how technology can be harnessed to improve healthcare services and change lives for the better. As this innovative new system continues to evolve, it has the potential to transform the way patients are monitored and treated, making healthcare more accessible and effective than ever before.
