The healthcare industry is changing. There is an increased demand to offer health monitoring solutions that are not only less expensive but also more efficient and provide better care. In short, the healthcare industry is joining other industries in their efforts to provide better service for less expense – to dramatically increase value.
Like their commercial counterparts, the challenge is to accomplish this goal without compromising security and the answer is to leverage technology – especially in the form of IoT.
The healthcare technology ecosystem is divided into three areas: medical devices, systems and software and connecting technologies.
