Where Is IoT and IoMT (Internet of Medical Things) Really Being Used in Healthcare?

While virtual care and remote working has dominated much of the Health IT conversation lately, there’s a really interesting related conversation around IoT.  As people start to really consider what the future of virtual care will look like, IoT is at the core of everyone’s future vision.  A network of remote devices is going to be one of the best ways for healthcare organizations to monitor the health of remote patients and know which patients need added care from a clinician.

To get a look at what some of the leaders in healthcare are doing with IoT, we sat down with Dave Wilson, Managing Director of IoT Global Sales at Cisco, to talk about where IoT is really being used in healthcare and what value is being derived from their efforts.  Plus, we talk about how a healthcare organization needs to approach managing 1000s of devices and how they’re going to pay for it.

Along with an IoT discussion, we also discuss the implications of 5G and learn more about the coming Wi-Fi 6 and how it will impact healthcare.  Then, we ask Wilson what is still holding back IoT in healthcare.  If you’re interested in learning more about where IoT is working in healthcare now and where it is headed, you’ll enjoy this interview.
