Use Case:
Embedding Byos technology into Connected Medical Devices



The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is a network of connected, smart machines and devices that can communicate with each other, improving the overall care of patients. The IoMT market is expected to be valued at $158.1 billion in 2022, a 283% increase over it’s value in 2017. The connected medical devices segment is expected to rise to $52.2 billion by 2022, making up 33% of the overall IoMT market.

X-Ray Machines, Chemotherapy dispensing stations, CT & MRI scanners, Physiologic monitors, Defibrillators, Infusion pumps, Anaesthesia units, Ventilators, etc. are increasingly connected via wired or wireless networks to increase efficiencies and patient outcomes:

  • IoMT Devices connect to electronic medical records (EMR) and image/data storage (e.g., PACS)

  • IoMT devices provide physicians and clinicians with remote access to data/images. Health practitioners can also control these devices remotely (e.g., modify alarms, configuration settings, level of therapy)

  • Connected Medical devices allow for remote service (e.g., manufacturer updates, troubleshooting, repair) and remote management (e.g., clinical updates like drug libraries for infusion pumps)

  • Intra-communication between medical devices (e.g., diagnostic device “informing” therapeutic devices like a monitor controlling opioid delivery)
