Achieving new levels of health technology interoperability with the Internet of Things

15 April 2014 | Steven Bridgeland, Senior Product Marketing Manager - Health, Windows Embedded, Microsoft


Microsoft’s Big Data event kicked off in San Francisco today, a gathering that spotlights the vast and growing potential of data to transform all kinds of organizations—if they know how to harness and make use of it.

It’s not new that creating connected systems in healthcare IT environments can help health organizations realize all kinds of new efficiencies—what is new is the way many are pushing the frontier of what is possible. The Internet of Things (IoT) trend encompasses all kinds of new technologies and services that enable hospitals to bring together existing systems and data, while maintaining compliance and security and improving patient care.

Microsoft customers are innovating single sign-on access that save clinicians countless hours, mobility solutions that offer secure, anywhere, anytime information access, remarkably integrated medication delivery systems…and more. You can read about those solutions, and much more about how IoT is helping hospitals reap new value from new and existing data and devices, by visiting Microsoft’s new Internet of Things in Health web page.
