Connected medical devices are transforming how healthcare is delivered.
The use of electronic medical devices is increasingly migrating from health care centers to homes. A new set of challenges faces device designers and manufacturers. In the past, it was nearly impossible to conceive of a patient undergoing dialysis in his or her own home, linking remotely to his or her physician for daily blood pressure or glucose checks, or downloading pacemaker activity via a telephone line. Today, all possibilities are a reality, and the advancement of innumerable more in-home medical devices is on the health care horizon.
