But there are a few areas where the most promising recent advances in medical technology are emerging. The Medtech Innovation Summit will explore the latest innovations and developments redefining the healthcare system as we know it, from remote monitoring, sensors and virtual reality advances, the healthcare ecosystem is evolving and improving the health and health care of people around the world.
IoMT: BUILDING A WELL-CONNECTED HEALTHCARE ECOSYSTEM
11:00AM-11:15AM: Keynote with Amazon Web Service's Asha D'Souza
11:15AM-11:30AM: Partner Keynote with NXP's Cornelius Mueller: Building A Well-Connected Healthcare Ecosystem
With their ability to collect, analyze, and transmit health data, IoMT devices are rapidly changing healthcare delivery. IoMT has given rise to the use of impactful technologies such as remote monitoring, telemedicine, robotics, and sensors. For patients and clinicians, these applications are creating a web of connected devices to help track and prevent chronic illnesses. But how exactly does this connected ecosystem work? And how can mass adoption challenges like privacy and security of data, management of large amount of data, and scalability be tackled?
THE RISE OF MEDICAL CARE FROM AFAR: A DIVE INTO RPM, WEARABLES, AND SENSORS
2:00PM-2:15PM: Partner Keynote with Wind River's Robert Krantz: Using the Cloud to Develop Secure RPM
2:15PM-2:30PM: Tech Talk with Murata's Blake Van Thof
2:30PM-3:15PM: Panel Discussion
One of the most interesting trends of today’s healthcare industry is the increased adoption of remote patient care monitoring (RPM). Thanks to the miniaturization of sensors and wireless communication, there is a plethora of small, unobtrusive devices that can rapidly deliver vital information to users as well as their physicians. These devices or wearables let providers manage acute and chronic conditions from afar, as well as cutting down patients' travel costs and infection risk. This session takes a deep dive on how evolving technologies in electronics, sensors, and connectivity helped drive the rise of remote patient monitoring.
