“There is no turning around it. The ubiquity of wireless technology and the strong need to transform healthcare will most certainly intersect!” -(pwc). About 10 years ago mHealth conferences were no more than a few people occasionally meeting in jeans. Now it is seen as the biggest technological breakthrough in healthcare which has the keep reading

  Unlike clinical issues, inefficiency and waste are often overlooked because it’s complicated and “unsexy”. These operational issues however could be the biggest lever for fixing healthcare, decreasing its cost and enhancing the patient experience. But…. Tackling these issues is difficult. keep reading

Big Data, Internet Of Things IoT
With the average home already having multiple devices connected to the Internet and each other, we are more susceptible to cyber threats than we realize. Anything that we own in our home that has the capability to connect to the Internet is considered an IoT device. It may not immediately come to mind that even a smart refrigerator, a Wi-Fi connected thermostat, coffeemaker, or doorbell could ever be used a backdoor to access your network. If your devices are connected to the Internet through an app on your smartphone or a wearable, you are more vulnerable to network attacks than you think. keep reading

The Kaiser Family Foundation provided a table of Population Distribution by Age in the United States showing that in 2016 there was a total of 88,681,600 people age 55 and over. Of those, 47,456,500 fell into the “senior citizen” bracket and were 65 years old and over. The projected number of senior citizens by 2020 will be 56 million. keep reading

Big Data, Internet Of Things IoT
2016 was a year for significant technological breakthroughs that transformed the way we live, work, and play. Virtual reality was finally within our grasp. People and devices were connected to each other and our environments more than ever. And automation changed the way we worked. So what do we expect in the new year? Here are our top tech trends for 2017 that we’re keeping our eyes on: IoT in the workplace In 2016, technology like Nest allowed us to change the environment in our homes through smart devices we could control remotely. It is expected that 2017 that these IoT devices will go beyond the home and into the workplace in the form of sensors, software, and other technology that is interconnected. This will guarantee that the workplace environment is running efficiently while also cutting on costs through intelligent devices that will automatically “sleep” when not in use. These smart devices will “speak” to one another ensuring optimal efficiency while keeping track of not just office equipment but also its workforce through location services. The rise of chatbots As LiveWorld chairman and CEO Peter Friedman predicts, “In 2017, brands will strategically and seamlessly integrate humans into chatbot interactions to scale and advance the effectiveness of their chatbot programs.” Mike Roberts, head of Messenger at Kik said, “It’s more of a cultural shift. Users are now so used to chatting with their friends via SMS and messengers that they feel comfortable with that same interface delivering an app experience.” “Bots make people’s lives easier, but are not designed to replace people,” said Roberts. “If you’re at a baseball stadium in your seat and want food, you’d have to either leave your seat or yell at one of the vendors if they’re near your section by chance. If the stadium had a bot, you could just chat with that bot inside the Kik app to request what you’d like and pay for it as well without ever having to risk leaving your seat — the vendor sees that you’ve ordered and paid for your food, at which point he or she will deliver.” Enhanced security for IoT With the rise of IoT in the workplace, the need for heightened security measures to protect Internet of Things devices has become a concern. Cisco head of strategy, Macario Namie, recently told TechRepublic, “As IoT continues to expand beyond businesses and into the realm of smart cities and connected government programs, the requirement for watertight security will continue to rise. 2017 will be the year where we see policy makers and governments step in to mandate IoT security guidelines across industries. In fact, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security just issued its Strategic Principles for Securing the Internet of Things (IoT) document in November.” Virtual and augmented reality 2017 will be a big year for virtual and augmented reality. With big-name hardware already hitting the market last year, expect an increase in momentum. With the current hardware still being connected by wires, look forward to the transition to Bluetooth technology and the introduction to wireless VR tech. Merchants are not far from introducing a full shopping experience via virtual reality with the ability to shop for everything from clothes to cars, and real estate. And Apple will finally make an Augmented Reality SDK accessible to developers which is likely to be just an introduction to more powerful iOS AR apps to be released later in the year.

Digital Health, Internet Of Things IoT

Patients and the healthcare industry benefit from the rise of IoT technology, providing both with increased access to care, increased quality of care and perhaps, most importantly, reduced cost of care.

With IoT medical devices, the disabled and elderly who were once left with no option but to live under controlled care in an expensive medical facility are now free to live at home. Families of patients who have Alzheimer’s can have peace of mind that their loved ones will not wander off with the IoT device that not only keeps doors locked but monitors movements with GPS locators.

Digital Health, Internet Of Things IoT
We all are aware that budget cuts are a real problem facing industries around the world – it seems like everyone is expecting to do more with less to break even; to make ends meet. The public health sector and social care systems are under this same scrutiny, believe it or not. This is incredible obvious when you look at how public health systems are supposed to handle population aging. Populations around the world are aging and they have increasingly more complicated health needs. The resources being used to help them are becoming fewer and further between.
