In the next ten years, as many as 50 billion medical devices will send data to healthcare providers, patients and each other. Data flow is exploding from hundreds of patients in a controlled setting, as well as real-time data streams from wearables, like heart rate monitors and blood pressure devices. With this rapid and large inflow of data, how are users, physician’s and medical device makers dealing with the risk of security breaches, data interpretability, scalability and data sharing? During this panel, experts in this area will discuss the challenges of data collection and management, as well as some strategic ways to succeed in the journey to digitization.

Topics include:

  • What is needed to build a data exchange ecosystem that connects all members of the care continuum?
  • Will this much access to data really drive lasting impact and improve patient outcomes?
  • How are hospitals/physicians preparing for breaches? How are device makers tackling the risk of data hacking?
