IoT technology has the potential to improve patient care and transform hospital operations, and CIOs have the opportunity and responsibility to lead this transformation.

According to research firm Gartner, “Things on the healthcare delivery organization (HDO) network will eventually outnumber other populations of network-attached computing devices, such as PCs, servers, access points, digital signage and mobile devices, combined.*”

These “things” are any device or place within a hospital — from ultrasound machines to IV pumps, wheelchairs to surgical equipment, and more. Almost everything in the hospital is now coming online, and interacting with people and places in innovative ways.
