December 05, 2019 / BERNADETTE WILSON

Internet of Things (IoT) adoption is exploding in healthcare. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) research found that 60 percent of healthcare organizations used IoT technology in 2016, and that number was forecast to climb to 85 percent in 2019.Chris Sullivan, Global Healthcare Practice Lead for Zebra Technologies, sees several areas where IoT technology is benefitting healthcare providers — and where opportunities exist for ISVs and software developers. The Medtech industry is looking for assistance from software developers to connect their products to healthcare IoT networks. “They have decades of experience building devices, but not as much experience on the software side,” Sullivan explains. “There are definitely opportunities here for software developers.”
