Healthcare Transformation

IDC expects that much of the Internet of Things (IoT) potential to empower hospitals, other healthcare providers and patients in their decision making will materialize in the next few years, and it will be driven by major developments in IoT platforms and advanced analytics.
With these tools, the vast amount of data generated by endpoints can be gathered, analysed and turned into clinical value. IoT platforms are evolving rapidly, and their architecture is becoming increasingly sophisticated. At a basic level, these products connect devices, collect and manage vast amounts of data, and expose new insights to healthcare providers’ backend systems or to third parties. Their ability to support the development of new applications that can underpin better and faster decision making is crucial.

European Union Member States will be soon mandated to comply with the rules that will enter into force in May 2018 with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). GDPR, adopted on 27 April 2016, is a new regulation by which the European Commission intends to strengthen and unify data protection for individuals within the European Union (EU). It also addresses export of personal data outside the EU.

Some of the most promising digital solutions have come out of healthcare innovation labs across Europe in the recent years. When partnering with vendors, collaborating across Europe, and evaluating the technology through an academic assessment methodology, the healthcare innovations become sustainable and thereby subject to an enterprise wide adoption and replication on a European scale.

Healthcare IT has traditionally had a technological focus and an administrative design paradigm and is hopelessly outdated in the world of 3rd platform and digital transformation. Digital hospitals of the future, on the other hand, must insist on IT with an organizational focus and a clinical design. Otherwise we fail to support and evolve the healthcare of tomorrow.

To measure your organizations maturity is always a good idea, and as a former CIO of a University Hospital, I have done it several times. Whether it is part of strategy development workshop or just as a tool to highlight your strengths and weaknesses, in order to plan and identify practical areas of development and progress, the maturity assessment is relevant. As a hospital CIO I used maturity models for just that. A tool of strategy and a tool of communication and practical planning.

This IDC Health Insights PeerScape study analyzes several hospital operation management implementations across Europe. The five success stories presented have been selected to present the key best practices. It provides European healthcare IT executives and their technology partners with practices that have the most impact on the success of a technology initiative.

This IDC Health Insights study analyzes developments in the market of solutions based on computing capabilities embedded into objects, a phenomenon also known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

IDC predicts that the worldwide installed base of IoT endpoints will grow at a rate of 21.4% through 2019 to 25.6 billion endpoints with IDC expecting approximately 30 billion connections in 2020.

Internet of Things have the potential to disrupt the healthcare market, thereby an innovation accelerator and a driver of new business models. The implementation of Internet of things technologies in the healthcare sector are growing rapidly and the maturity of different use cases will increase faster than traditional technologies. Furthermore, IoT technologies and applications can be separated and isolated from other applications, making them ideal for pilot tests and further learning within the hospital and between sectors in an integrated care setting,

    HI, Yes I do. At least in western Europe, there is a growing trend to apply IoT technologies as the main infrastructure to handle compliance with traceability regulations. That is, for smart pharmacy, drugs, instrument tracking from sterile services department (SSD) to the operation rooms and back etc. That also adreesses the need for automation,…

    Jonas, don' you think that the architecture adopted to address traceability regulation could easily be replaced by IOT solutions. Main drivers: less implementation costs, no packaging line performance decrease, no additional cost for aggregation, and of course interconnexion with smart phone app.
