Healthcare management is becoming a major economic issue worldwide, with national healthcare expenditures reaching close to 17.8% as a share of GDP growing at 5.8% YoY in 2015. Transforming healthcare digitally and complementing it with Internet of Things (IOT) can considerably help in addressing healthcare issues. With digital transformation, we have an opportunity to build a wide range of applications on top of IOT to meet real needs of the patients, nurses, doctors, staff, and families in a hospital or home environment. IOT can help, assist, and augment the existing systems or create new ways to make sure the patient gets the best care, and the job of nurses, doctors, and staff becomes easier, efficient, economic, and safer.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • Why IOT is not a cost issue, but a use case issue
  • A look at a range of use cases that can be realized through the application of IoT
  • Applications of use cases for next-gen medical devices
