Overview:
The Internet of Things (IoT) will revolutionize healthcare as we know it today, creating an era where continuous monitoring and real-time data analysis are becoming reality and having far-reaching implications. From chronic disease management to the efficient implementation of preventative medicine, the IoT can provide mechanisms for increasing the quality and effectiveness of healthcare. Embedded processing and connectivity are the heart of the Internet of Things and this webinar from Freescale will show how to implement them for the healthcare environment.

This webinar will focus on:

  • Overview of the telehealth ecosystem for clinical and home environments
  • Selecting the best wireless standards to optimize connectivity of portable healthcare devices
  • Benefits of a hub-based implementation
  • Real-world deployment examples

Length: 50 mins + 10 mins of Q&A

Who should attend: Medical, healthcare and fitness device designers

Presenter: David Niewolny, Healthcare Business Development Manager Freescale

The IoT should not be taken out of the context of Healthcare today. Technology cannot realize its potential without an open minded cadre of practitioners that are able to see such potential even if they cannot see how it can be realized. In Public Healthcare we have a Federal bureaucracy unable to accommodate promised potential. With respect to State commitments, the political implications of decisions far outways any rational or moral decisions regarding care. In private healthcare, there is a heavy screen or veil between image and reality. Private insurors and their embedded care professionals are mostly dedicated to their profit and incentives. I have never heard of efficiency in any delivery system when a whole new layer of management is inserted into a service environment and Public and Private Healthcare in the U.S. is made impotent by all the layers of bureaucracy helping maintain the relationship between client and provider. With regard to public programs, the agency in charge has no notion of cost/benefit and as long as their processes are not threatened, status quo is perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately, public leadership sees the issues as too complex, private leadership is quite happy with profit margins and bonuses. Noone believes nor can define why the system is broken and thus, cost of technology is not justified if at the same time all are willing to spend twice as much as necessary for current healthcare practices. To the professional community, the scandalous cost of U.S. healthcare is an open joke. Technology is always ahead of practice in the computational environment. We may be in our 6th Generation of computing technology, but we reside in the 4th generation of information systems.

The good news is that this is a global economy and several regions and countries within them do not provide the same constraints as those in the US. In fact several are embracing technology and remote monitoring. Germany and France are among the leaders in this space. UK is not far behind. China's lack of regulation is an opportunity like no other. Stay focused only on the US? Not here.
