Healthcare organizations face numerous challenges in today's dynamic
business environment, be it clinical, non-clinical or operational
processes in hospitals.

The industry is fundamentally focusing on digital transformational
strategies while increasing its investments in next-generation solutions
such as clinical information systems, connected devices and digital
engagement tools to meet evolving customer necessities across the
continuum of care.

Megatrends of 2017, which include artificial intelligence, personal
virtual assistants, data as a service, and connected living for smart
homes, present a great opportunity for companies that are able to
leverage these best technologies and services.

Connectivity is redefining the way healthcare is delivered with the
advent of Internet of Things (IoT), mHealth apps, health wearables,
in-home self-monitoring tools, and social networking capabilities.

Connected health has the potential to radically transform healthcare
delivery, allowing consumers to be more engaged and empowered than ever
before. However, with widespread concerns about issues such as ease of
use, reliability, privacy and security, successful deployment of digital
health strategies is clogged.

Now more than ever, it is crucial to focus on how we use and interact
with digital health technologies to empower consumers to manage their
health conditions, enabling them to design and deliver their own health
and care services while making them less dependent on healthcare

In Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) a major technology leveraging
connectivity is IoT. In healthcare, 60% of organizations around the
world have already adopted this technology in some form - either as
smart energy meters or as smart patient monitoring solutions.

Healthcare is one of the industries that face significant disruption by
IoT, and yet is only partially aware of the advancements, the potential,
and its benefits. Application areas for IoT in healthcare, or the IoMT,
cover the entire healthcare ecosystem - on body, in home, community, in
clinic, and in hospital.

The healthcare IoT landscape begins from simple remote monitoring
technologies to smart bio-sensors and connected medical devices'
integration with enterprise hospital IT systems. The technology has the
potential to not only ensure patient safety in the overall care process,
but also to improve the process how physicians deliver accurate care.

These are a few applications on healthcare IoT that can help providers
deliver better care for their patients. There is definitely much scope
for IoT in the healthcare sector.
