The internet of medical things (IoMT) is changing health care, and the industry needs to be prepared to harness the technology for value-based care. There are key challenges around implementation and cybersecurity which health systems need to understand if they want to derive the benefits this advancing technology offers.
That was a key message shared by experts during a two-part webinar series on the internet of medical things hosted by the Center for Connected Medicine (CCM), an executive briefing center in Pittsburgh, Pa. The CCM – jointly operated by GE Healthcare, IBM, Lenovo Health, Nokia, and UPMC – regularly convenes thought leaders from the health care industry to discuss best practices on pressing health IT issues.
The IoMT webinar series tapped the expertise of seven leaders from a range of health care institutions:
- Rasu Shrestha, MD, MBA, Chief Innovation Officer, UPMC and Executive Vice President, UPMC Enterprises (moderator)
- Tom Foley, Director, Global Health Solutions Strategy, Lenovo Health
