Health IoT Panel – Practical ways to get from promise to practice


Healthcare is quickly transforming into Virtual Care outside healthcare facilities.  As clinicians, patients and payers struggle with new ways of connecting to examine, order, treat, monitor and pay for care, they are looking for innovative technology solutions.  IoT is already leading in remote digital diagnostic devices, but there are many more opportunities for technologies to nudge, support, reinforce and report patient care.  Following up on the issues and insights raised in the Keynote: HEALTH IOT – ACCELERATING THE PATH FROM PROMISE TO IMPACT, our panel of physicians and healthcare developers will address critical industry questions from the audience and provide examples of leading edge applications of IoT in healthcare, to answer:  Where is the value?  Who is buying it?  What are the biggest barriers?  Where is it working?  How is it failing? What is next after diagnostic devices?  What do the doctors need?  What do the patients want?  What does everyone prefer?
