The IoT Evolution Health event is coming up fast, and we interviewed our speakers to get a bit of a preview of what to expect from the conference.

Here, we spoke to Stephen Wray, CEO, CloudMine, who will be a featured speaker in the following session during the week of education:

HIMSS/Privacy in IoT Healthcare

Patient information is one of the most important security concerns in the data management world, and is heavily regulated by government agencies around the world. IoT distributed data security strategies can help keep that data safe, keep you compliant, and keep the bad actors out.

Here is a little preview of his thoughts:

The integration of IoT is rapidly emerging as a key driver of digital healthcare transformation in 2018. In both clinical trials and disease management initiatives, wearables and voice-enabled devices are enabling a more patient centric, evidence-based approach to health, wellness and discovery. The applications for IoT are virtually endless, but like other healthcare IT components, meeting security, compliance, and interoperability requirements is an important barrier to overcome, if widespread adoption is to occur.

The regulatory landscape is being defined in real time as more companies seek to enhance data accessibility and value beyond the pill. Allowing patients to participate in clinical trials through remote (IoT enabled) access - transporting activities of daily living and biometric data, for example - will elevate the value of clinical research.

In parallel, allowing patients and caregivers to gain greater control over condition monitoring and management, particularly in high-prevalence conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and respiratory illness could improve the timeliness and impact of interventions, increasing the efficiency of healthcare delivery.
