Re: Healthcare
I continue to be concerned about security as it is the "missing link" as we continue to be faced with a proleforation of such gear.

Re: Healthcare and IoT
@freehe:

Absolutely there is no way IOT can eliminate or replace healthcare model. That thought itself is very scary.

Healthcare is critical and we do need real people addressing health issues not automated technology.

UX
Ovum's research has found three main priorities for enterprises when it comes to IoT adoption:

1) Improving customer engagement and experience


UX (User Experience) is becoming more and more key factor in enterprise world. By engaging users or customers since the intial stages of any initiative gives project team an opportunity to get an idea of users expectations from early on. That way there will not be a disconnect in terms of what is expected vs to be delivered.

Re: Healthcare
@freehe - While I agree with you that the potential for fraud and indentity issues are real, the low-tech way of doing things didn't protect patients either: Files thrown in the trash without being shred or just being left lying around for anyone to look at.  Even humans are reckless with patient's confidentiality.

It occurred to me that it's also possible she got in way over her head - so didn't set out with nefarious intentions and wasn't so much delusional, as in denial.

Healthcare and IoT
I am definitely against wall-less hospitals. There will always be a need for hospitals as long as we have wars, guns, knives, and other weapons that can be used to harm people as well as diseases that are treatable and untreatable.

IoT would be great to see in real-time patient statistics and patient status, collaborate with other doctors and medical professionals or schedule surgeries but actual treatment of patients requires hospitals, doctors, nurses and other medical personnel. IoT cannot replace that.

Re: Healthcare
@afwriter, I agree. I am worried about IoT in healthcare as well. Fraud already occurred in healthcare prior to IoT, fraud will only increase with IoT.
