The New Wave of the Internet-of-Things: Transforming the Healthcare Industry
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) has been gaining more attention in the healthcare industry. One recent report forecasts that the medical IoT market is poised to hit $117 billion by 2020. Much of this attention is influenced by the revolution in data which allows people to monitor their health by using connected devices. The analysis of this data enables patients to actively manage their personal health and enhances the decision-making skills of medical professionals.
Despite the wonders of healthcare IoT, there are several challenges that impede its development. Some healthcare providers and professionals are still adjusting to using and securing medical mobile devices. Patient privacy and cyber security is also a major concern. While today's devices use secure methods of information exchange in the cloud, they could still be vulnerable to breaches. Regulators will also likely continue to regulate connected devices used in the healthcare industry.
In this two-hour LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals organized by The Knowledge Group will discuss how the Internet of Things is transforming the healthcare industry. The speakers will offer suggestions on how to take advantage of healthcare IoT possibilities and overcome obstacles.
Key topics include:
- How IoT is Changing Health Care
- IoT Health Care Challenges
- Health Care Privacy & HIPAA
- IT Integration & Cyber Security
- FDA's Guidelines to Medical Devices
- Considerations on Selecting Technology

- The Internet of Things (IOT) raises legal and regulatory challenges, mainly in the areas of privacy and security.
- From a cybersecurity perspective, IOT brings vulnerabilities to attack, including hacking and being redeployed for other purposes.
- In terms of privacy, developers will need to implement privacy policies that conform to existing law (such as, in healthcare, HIPAA) and enable consumer opt-in and opt-out.
- Questions of who can control the IOT loom large as IOT will be very powerful in its ability to communicate with all our devices (particularly medical devices and even health and wellness apps or similar technologies).
- Liabilities may extend up and down the chain of supply, although it may ultimately be challenging to pinpoint who is responsible for malfunctions in IOT.
