Learn why healthcare is embracing IoT, and why your organization should, too
In a world where 2.67 billion things joined the Internet of Things (IoT) in the past year—bringing the worldwide total to over 20 billion—it’s not surprising that more and more of those things are related to healthcare.
Welcome to the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT).
According to an IDC study, 72.7% of healthcare providers have deployed IoT, while 27.2% say they plan to launch in the next 12 to 24 months. In this free eBook (based on the IDC study), AT&T explores IoMT usage, its dramatic future potential, and the reasons why healthcare organizations need to be a part of that future.
As IoT becomes a familiar concept, we can forget how amazing it really is. Simply put, IoT can “turn almost any object into a source of information about that object, “according to Deloitte. In the IoMT, that “object” can be a heart monitor, a medication, a wheelchair, a doctor, or even a patient. In the last case, a continuous stream of patient-generated data (PGD) tells clinicians far more than a series of intermittent office visits ever could.
At a higher level, monitoring across entire patient populations can lead to the identification of higher- risk individuals, as well as suggest more efficient business and staffing models for healthcare facilities.
