The Healthcare of Things

The world of Healthcare meets the Internet of Things with possibilities limited only by our imaginations.

By: Kurt Roemer

The Citrix Technology Office launched the 2020 Technology Landscape at Synergy 2015. A key topic in this year's edition is healthcare and in particular, "The Healthcare of Things", which looks at the intersection of the Internet of Things and Healthcare. We are witnessing the beginning of a healthcare transformation led in no small part by the telemetry and insights from health-focused Internet of Things. Health focused things will transform visits with medical professionals, assist with chronic disease monitoring, remind us to take and refill our prescriptions, and engage in therapies. Crucially, they will help us make the best choices under all circumstances so that health parameters stay within acceptable, long-term boundaries. 

For those interested in future technology trends beyond healthcare, the entire 2020 Technology Landscape is available online.
