IoT MasterClass: The Connected Patient – The Future of Health Care and the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

Abstract:

Value Based Care and Patient Centricity have emerged as global paradigms to address how patient and overall health care are delivered and paid for. This transformation promises to drive down costs and improve patient outcomes. It will incentivize care providers to better engage patients and to more consistently adopt evidence-based medicine in diagnosis and treatment decisions. A major driving force behind this transformation is the emergence of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) and the concept of Digital Health or more specifically connectivity between patients, clinicians, machines and care environments. The results of such a transformation promise improved outcomes, reduced costs and ultimately, provide greater access to high-quality care for more people across the globe. The Medical Internet of Things and Digital health will be critical in addressing many challenges and opportunities related to care delivery inefficiencies, access, costs, quality and personalization.
