Paul Dendale, from Hasselt University in Belgium discussed some of the benefits that were seen in a recent study of the field. Dendale said being able to monitor patients and hopefully predict a potential problem before it results in a hospitalization can make a big difference in not only the patient's life but also the functioning of the hospital.
