To develop an open IoT ecosystem for clinical and remote medical devices that can bring together patient monitoring data into a single data management and analytics platform.
Connected Care leverages IoT technology to revolutionize the way hospitals are organized and take care of patients. By making healthcare "smart," hospitals allow nurses and doctors to receive real-time data regarding the health of every patient. Smart medical devices are hooked up to the cloud, and connected to a variety of software like a data analytics platform and an Application Enablement Platform (AEP). These platforms allow the data that is retrieved from the medical devices to be pushed directly to the medical professionals.

Those in charge of the patients set rules and parameters that are fed to the devices. The devices will then reconcile those parameters with the real time data that it is processing from the patient. For example, a doctor could set the device to push an alert to him if a certain patient's heart rate drops below a certain level.

This is beneficial in a variety of ways. First, it allows medical professionals to operate more efficiently by increasing the accessibility of patient information. Next, it will lead to a significant reduction in errors, as the database will store information consistently and doctors would be able to easily refer to the data the receive. Finally, it would allow for off-site monitoring by enabling doctors to check a patient's medical status while they are away from the hospital. This would free up space and resources in hospitals and further drive an increase in efficiency.
