LONDON, Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Transformation of Healthcare Aided by Digitization

Availability of information is one of the major challenges that exists in healthcare system due to lack of technology infrastructure and connectivity. With a distributed network architecture, information is scattered across several repositories, however it fails to integrate these repositories to provide valuable insights in critical situations. This generates the need for a connected architecture which could seamlessly communicate among distributed data sources and provide real-time information when required.

The present applications in healthcare sector are focused towards providing specific solutions. The diverse devices used for the purpose are of different architecture and design. Thus it lacks the capability to interconnect with each other for effective information sharing. Interoperability of devices will enable medical professionals to access critical information from any place using any kind of devices such as desktop, mobile or tablet, thereby improving flexibility. In addition, infrastructure cost for deployment of separate information system and devices for communication incurs huge cost for the organizations. This hinders adoption of advanced system among small and medium health organizations.

The Internet of things (IoT) is a concept that has emerged from a vision of an always connected world. Seamless connectivity between devices anywhere, anytime, in any condition is the goal behind the concept of IoT. This research service explores the impact of Internet of Things in Healthcare sector. The report also highlights the key enabling technologies and their convergence prospect to envision the future connected healthcare systems and applications.

In brief, this research service provides the following:

A brief snapshot of Connected Healthcare System
Drivers of Connected Health and challenges in its adoption
Technology Value Chain
Key Enabling Technologies and the industry participants facilitating the concept of Connected Health
Key application areas and some emerging Connected Health applications
Roadmap of the enabling technologies and applications

Research Methodology
Step 1: To provide a thorough analysis of each topic, Technical Insights' analysts perform a review of patents to become familiar with the major developers and commercial participants and their processes.
Step 2: Building on the patent search, the analysts review recent funding deals within the technology domain to get an insight into the activity in the domain from a funding perspective.
Step 3: The analysts then create a detailed questionnaire with content created to address the research objectives of the study, which functions as a guide during the interview process. While the analysts use structured questionnaires to guarantee coverage of all the desired issues, they also conduct interviews in a conversational style. This approach results in a more thorough exchange of views with the respondents, and offers greater insight into the relevant issues than more structured interviews may provide.
Step 4: The analysts conduct primary research with key industry participants, technology developers, investors to obtain the required content. Interviews are completed with sources located throughout the world. Our analysts contact the major commercial participants to find out about the advantages and disadvantages of processes and the drivers and challenges behind technologies and applications. Our analysts talk to the principal developers, researchers, engineers, business developers, analysts, strategic planners, and marketing experts, among other professionals.
Step 5: The project management and research team reviews and analyzes the research data that are gathered and adds its recommendations to the draft of the final study. Having conducted both published studies and custom proprietary research covering many types of new and emerging technology activities as well as worldwide industry analysis, the management and research team adds its perspective and experience to provide an accurate, timely analysis. The analysts then prepare written final research content for each project and sometimes present key findings in analyst briefings to clients.
