IoT Healthcare Solutions and Applications

What Healthcare IoT solutions you can implement with Kaa

Kaa — a leading IoT platform for state-of-the-art Medical IoT.

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 enterprise 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 meet their IoT objectives faster and at little expense. Consequently, these companies now have a vantage point for further business development that later movers are still yet to claim.

Fully addressing the mission-critical nature of the IoT in Healthcare, Kaa makes a strong impact on scalability and resilience of IoT solutions. Thus, you can elastically expand your Kaa cluster to support any number of devices and ensure optimal performance; you can also minimize the risk of downtime with highly available deployment of Kaa and its self-healing capabilities.

No less important for medical IoT solutions is security. Kaa utilizes modern security protocols, such as TLS, for secure data exchange between devices, a variety of methods for device authentication, and flexible credentials lifecycle management. We’ve had a solid track record of companies’ successful HIPAA and FDA compliance.

Medical IoT spurred the innovation that can help millions. We are taking
it into mainstream right now with Kaa.
