IoT Slam Live 2017 Session Abstract: 

Health care applications are exploding across the mobile space. They engage people in the most personal way with companion data that simplifies and encourages treatment. Patients struggle with provider portals, doctors sites, personal fitness data and all manner of applications and sites that are silo-ed, not user friendly and not patient centered.

While product and tech people talk about making improvements are they using technology and the IoT in the most friendly, secure and reliable way? Let’s explore ways to make user experience better for patients and practitioners. Let’s look at ways to save money, make delightful products and provide better outcomes. This talk will focus on actionable results.

Adoption of the new IoT health care services relies heavily on the experience — everything from tele-health to checking my steps and reporting my life moments to my doctor.

Lots of companies are investing in data-centric applications that provide intense engagement. Putting focus on life moments and how IoT data can bring info right when it’s needed for health care discovery and management can make a difference in people’s lives while also creating value for businesses.
