TECH BUYER May 2019 - IDC Perspective - Doc # AP43757919

Internet of Things in Healthcare: Future of Connected Care

By: Manoj VallikkatResearch Manager, Shaily ShahResearch Manager, Aparna Reddappagari, Gerald WangHead, Asia Pacific Public Sector


This IDC perspective provides a picture of the relevance and potential role of IoT in healthcare systems in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) by touching upon use cases and analyzing IDC surveys and case examples. It provides a market forecast of projected investment on specific use cases in the region, and concludes with challenges in the adoption of IoT and guidelines to tech buyers to ensure a smooth roadmap for the successful adoption of IoT.

"With each passing day, patients will challenge the current efficiency of providers and payers. The need for early detection of diseases and remote monitoring of patients will essentially push IoT adoption forward. As technology is becoming more invisible with advanced sensor systems, subsequently supported strongly with better clarity in regulatory compliance and policies by the respective governments, there would be faster adoption of IoT technologies by both providers and payers, leading to better scalability and efficiency of the care delivery system," says Manoj Vallikkat, research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Healthcare Insights.
