Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

Understand how your deployed products are performing and deliver promising patient outcomes, while controlling costs, driving revenue, and meeting changing regulatory requirements.

What is the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)?


IoMT, also known as IoT in healthcare, is the interconnectedness of medical devices and applications through information and communication technologies.

IoMT uses automation, sensors, and machine-based intelligence for less human intervention during routine healthcare procedures and monitoring operations, and reduced machine downtime, increased asset life, and lower patient and provider costs.

Reinvent your medical device service strategy with remote service

What are the challenges of IoMT?

Security and Privacy

IoMT comes with some unique legal, regulatory, technical, and privacy challenges, mainly because the IoMT ecosystem has so many stakeholders. Due to the sensitivity of medical data, there is significant regulation about how and where it can be used, along with specifications about how the technology should be secured.

Data Ownership

It's not always clear who IoMT data belongs to when it is generated. The patient, software provider, device manufacturer, or other healthcare providers might generate or touch the data during its lifecycle. Depending on the context, the data rights for each party can be complex.

Implementation

Given the distributed nature of IoMT infrastructure, the devices and software systems must be able to communicate securely with one another. Interoperability and device compliance with industry standards can complicate implementation of IoMT.

Upgrades and Updates

Given the secure nature of medical devices, there is often an inability to upgrade or update with new features. Consumers may be unlikely to upgrade their devices every year, and hospitals are generally slow to roll out expensive new equipment, resulting in a patchwork of products with different capabilities across the market.

Build value with usage data from the IoMT

Know how your customers use your products and how they perform. Deliver unparalleled service and the right products with market-leading effectiveness.
