CHAIRPERSON’S NOTE

Since the advent of the HITECH Act in 2009, EMRs have gone from a growth to a replacement market. Connecting medical devices to EMRs for clinical documentation has also gone from a growth to replacement market. We are in, what many are calling, the post-EMR world. In this new environment, the connectivity focus has shifted from clinical documentation of medical device data into the patient’s chart, to capturing and consuming device data in a myriad of ways.

Often styled as the Internet of Medical Things or IoMT, focus has shifted to

  • Digital health applications like remote patient monitoring and chronic disease management,
  • Clinical decision support systems, and
  • Extending embedded systems devices to provide remote surveillance, alert and alarm notification

The Medical Device and IoT Summit explores all of these issues and more to provide actionable information for device manufacturers, software developers, provider organizations and investors. The Summit will focus on overcoming key challenges, transforming care and enhancing privacy and security in the acute care, alternate site and home settings.

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) has gone patient-centric, with providers and payers looking to aggregate device data across acute care and ambulatory settings. Acute care medical device data feeds care plans, which feed discharge plans. Ambulatory device data feeds efforts to avoid readmissions and better manage chronic diseases. Medical device data from both acute care and ambulatory settings feed clinical decision support systems for population health, patient engagement and other digital health applications.

Against this shifting market, the IoMT faces evolving and seemingly ever present challenges:

  • Increasing data security threats
  • The need to safeguard privacy, especially as related to compliance with GDPR and new regulations in California
  • Balancing innovation with patient safety and efficacy with regulatory strategies
  • Constantly evolving technologies like sensors and wireless
  • The relentless consumerization of medical devices

Join us at the Summit to dig deep into the Internet of Medical Things in all its opportunity and complexity.
