With each passing day, we find a new market or application where the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are going to redefine life as we know it – from our methods of transportation, to how we purchase goods, to the way energy is transmitted and managed. However, none of these applications will have as profound of an impact on the human race as the application of IIoT and AI/ML to Healthcare.
We live in a world where medical errors are the third leading cause of death behind cancer and cardiac disease, leading to more than 200K preventable deaths every year. We have an aging population growing at an unprecedented rate, and on top of all of this, healthcare costs are increasing, driven largely by the adoption of new technology. But why is this?
Listen now as RTI’s Healthcare market development director, David Niewolny, discusses the current state of the Healthcare industry and the impact of advancing technology. Attendees will learn about the technical challenges of developing a fully networked, interoperable and secure healthcare system – including connectivity, standardization, and scalability. This webinar will also cover technical solutions and how the healthcare industry can pave the best path forward.
