The Internet of things (IoT) is arguably one of the most powerful accelerators of digital transformation in the field of healthcare. As the variety of connected "health things" is increasing, now extending to patients, healthcare workers, medical equipment, surgical supplies, and medicines, exciting new IoT-based healthcare applications are emerging at a fast pace.
IDC believes that IoT-driven digital transformation will contribute significantly to major improvements in the performance of healthcare systems across Central and Eastern Europe, Middle East, and Africa (CEMA). The Internet of health is gaining momentum fast in CEMA, and the innovation-accelerating impact of IoT on CEMA healthcare markets will be massive.
This IDC Health Insights study looks into IoT-driven transformation prospects and offers a long-term view of how the Internet of things will change the face of CEMA healthcare through 2020 and beyond.
