The Healthcare industry remains among the fastest to adopt the Internet of Things. The reason for this trend is that integrating IoT features into medical devices greatly improves the quality and effectiveness of service, bringing especially high value for the elderly, patients with chronic conditions, and those requiring constant supervision. According to some estimates, spending on the Healthcare IoT solutions will reach a staggering $1 trillion by 2025 and, hopefully, will set the stage for highly personalized, accessible, and on-time Healthcare services for everyone.
Kaa, as a leading open-source IoT platform, allows OEMs and healthcare system integrators to establish cross-device connectivity and implement smart features into medical devices and related software systems. Healthcare companies - developing hardware or software products - that have chosen to integrate Kaa’s functionality into their products were able to achieve IoT goals faster and at little expense. Consequently, these companies now have a vantage point that the IoT runner-ups are yet to claim.
