“Connected Health”: Is Your Healthcare Facility Ready for the Age of IoT?

Monday, April 4, 2016

Owners and operators of healthcare facilities know they must keep on the cutting-edge of technology to survive and thrive in today’s rapidly changing landscape. How to evolve and lead in technology? Among the leading trends and issues currently defining technology in healthcare delivery is achieving “connected health” through the Internet of Things (IoT).


The age of IoT – which Gartner estimates will involve 6.4 billion connected things by 2017, and 5.5 million new things getting connected every day – enables a radical shift in healthcare delivery. By facilitating improved communication between patients and providers through connected devices, IoT represents a singularly powerful force for change in healthcare delivery.


But reaping the benefits of IoT in the connected health environment requires infrastructure that is flexible and dynamic enough to handle the complexity of the intelligent sensor and device technologies. The entire healthcare industry is poised to join the race to integrate these advance technology systems, and industry leaders are looking for answers.


That’s why we’re so excited for the Legrand Healthcare Technology Summit. Hosted in Nashville, TN in partnership with Superior Essex and Cisco, this event will address the ways healthcare facilities need to evolve and lead in technology.


The speaking roster for this exciting event includes experts who are working at the vanguard of the healthcare technology industry, including:


  • Kevin Kearney, Legrand
