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)
