One of the biggest transformational shifts in healthcare is the rise of the Internet of Medical things.

The healthcare industry has been quick to adopt connected medical devices as they can help providers offer a better standard of care while also improving efficiency and lowering operational costs.

IoT in the healthcare sphere has given rise to wearable devices that allow for remote monitoring of various vital signs and health stats. Today, wearables in healthcare have moved past the hype and are now playing a key role in ensuring clinical success, lower cost of care, and improved patient experiences and outcomes.

This topic will be unpacked further at this year’s Healthcare Innovation Summit 2018 which is scheduled for 17-18 October 2018 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Now in it’s sucessful 4th year, HISA will bring together over 300+ hospital CxOs, medical practitioners, healthcare IT leaders, service providers and government functionaries, as well as a carefully selected roster of local and international speakers.

Under the theme “Transforming Healthcare with Technology”, the agenda will cover emerging technology trends in healthcare such as AI, IoT and wearables, electronic health records, healthcare data security and privacy, telemedicine, predictive analytics and much more. It will also look at the impact that these technologies have on hospital operations and healthcare delivery.
