IoT Is Transforming Healthcare
The health industry is in need of new solutions to improve diagnostics and treatment, reduce operating costs of hospitals, optimize workflow, improve outcomes and increase the life expectancy of patients. Innovations in bringing IoT into medical devices, hospital facilities, and clinical settings are transforming health care.
The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is connecting medical devices, healthcare infrastructure, applications of healthcare IT systems, and other items such as mobile devices. IoT-enabled medical devices and healthcare infrastructure are equipped with wireless technologies that allow the machine-to-machine communication that is the foundation of IoMT. IoMT devices link to cloud-based healthcare IT platforms where data is stored and analyzed.
As a way to advance this transformation in health care, we’ve organized our next Asia Innovation Tour (AIT) to Shenzhen and Shanghai, China (July 10-14) centered on Connected Health Solutions. On AIT, you’ll be meeting a multitude of industry professionals through visits to manufacturing facilities, certification labs, top-tier medical companies, and discussing product development strategies with industry leaders at the HWTrek Meetups. Also, you will liaise with retailers seeking new product categories, service providers who are looking for new value-added solutions and gain valuable marketing insights.
