Session ID: 

Embracing the IoT: Ideas Are Easy, Execution Is Hard

2:30pm - 3:30pm Wednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


Healthcare delivery is in need of a technological transformation. Many of the challenges facing our healthcare system today can be remedied by applying the principles of an IIoT system and combining it with AI and ML, creating a highly reliable automated system for real time decision support. This session will take you on a journey starting with the current state of the IIoT in healthcare and highlighting the gaps that exist. The speakers will paint a futuristic picture of healthcare, utilizing a standards-based, edge-computing IIoT architecture and discuss the benefits and challenges of implementation. Finally, you will be provided with the tools (reference architectures from the IIC and MD PnP) necessary to help the healthcare industry begin developing products and creating an ecosystem for a next generation of connected healthcare products.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Analyze the wide range of healthcare data-connectivity requirements
  • Compare and contrast the most common connectivity architectures in healthcare
  • Identify the best system level architecture for the transportation and analysis of unprecedented amounts of data securely, reliably and in real time
  • Explain the benefits of plug-and-play interoperability within a healthcare environment
