The healthcare industry is at the advent of a digital evolution, spurred by a growing community of web-enabled products and services including the Cloud, smart and connected devices, and a more health-conscious and tech-savvy population. According to Frost & Sullivan, the internet of medical things is expected to grow at CAGR of 26.2% to reach $72 billion by 2021. Sensor, medical device, fitness and wearable manufacturers, data analytics, cloud and data warehousing, cybersecurity and high-tech companies, hospitals and physician networks, health plans and payers, as well as regulatory and standards bodies are all excited with the potential that healthcare IoT brings, but are equally concerned about the challenges in privacy, cybersecurity, data interoperability, and patient engagement that come along with it. Cambridge Healthtech Institute’s Inaugural Healthcare Internet of Things aims to bring together the different constituents and stakeholders within the value chain to participate in interactive discussion panels and deliver cases studies and pilot programs that showcase the healthcare industry’s collaborative efforts toward the adoption and implementation of IoT.
