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.

Those skeptics in the healthcare industry that challenged IBM's ability to democratize Watson should take note that Watson for Oncology is being deployed in mainstream hospitals and is actively being used by oncologists across the world.
