Health Slam focuses specifically on the opportunities and challenges associated with the application of IoT across Healthcare & Life Sciences, to improve the provision of patient care,  advance the finding of new cures for diseases, and ultimately to help save lives. At the event, attendees will gain access to a world-class lineup of speakers, presenting exclusive sessions on IoT thought leadership and best practices.

With exclusive contributions from Healthcare IoT experts at Zebra Technologies, IBM, Microsoft, Emerson, Spirent, Trackmybeat, Patient Planet, Wipro, ADRM software, 21st Century Analytics, Kollabio, Great Bay Software, LatticeWorx, Intelligent Insites, Clinixion, Reach IPS, Multilevel Leadership Consulting (MLC), Los Altos Consulting, and Health 24/7 amongst other leaders,  Health Slam 2016 is a must-attend event for anyone seeking to learn about best practices for IoT Healthcare.

Health Slam features insights and exclusive Healthcare IoT use-cases showcasing:

  • Practical steps to improving Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) security without expensive infrastructure upgrades or wholesale legacy medical device replacements
  • Applying enterprise information context to quickly grow IoT data sets to synthesize rich situational awareness and drive better outcomes for Healthcare stakeholders
  • Leveraging tools to identify the exact location, value, specifics and usage of all of their medical supplies and products at all times, dramatically improving clinical outcomes, point-of-use information, and integration of data into other systems
  • The convergence of smart sensors, mobile and cloud technologies to make “health” and “healthcare” more continuous
  • How to support the physician-patient relationship, securely enable data flow, and ensure real-time communication between all authorized parties
  • Identify factors to consider, such as location-sensing options, software applications available, and best paths for driving adoption across health systems
  • Exploring the adoption of clinical integration technology to enhance and complete population health, telehealth, Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) and other quality initiatives while reducing overall operating costs and patient emergency re-admissions
  • How to build a security environment that safeguards medical data both now and in a transformed healthcare environment
