Utilising the IoT in Medical Devices

Mi3 News

At Mi3 we are often asked by clients to incorporate new technologies into their designs or products. One such ‘new kid on the block’ technology that is starting to disrupt the healthcare sector is the Internet of Things, or IoT.

Collaborating with organisations that can develop applications in this sector strengthens our offering to our own customers. In the latest white paper from Mi3, we enlist the help of custom software and application developers, Polymorph, to discuss the technology trends that are currently disrupting the healthcare sector, medical devices included.

The global delivery of healthcare has become increasingly focused on medical outcomes, achieving results for patients, and attaching industry incentives to those results. It is therefore not surprising that healthcare devices are one of the fastest-growing sectors in the Internet of Things (IoT) market. In fact, Healthcare leaders are therefore well-advised to consider the benefits of utilising the technology currently disrupting the healthcare industry.

‍Five key trends that are driving change in the healthcare sector and how the IoT can positively impact processes and patient outcomes are discussed in more detail in the latest white paper in Mi3's Design & Development White Paper Series:

‍The need to free up time to focus on the patients.

  • Existing processes may be slowing things down.
  • Proper risk management in healthcare can saving more human lives.
  • Data can't predict the future but can help you travel back in time.
  • If you're not already innovating, you're lagging and should get on it.
