Eventbrite - SoCalBio Digital Health Summit

Exploring the Promise of the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT)

The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) refers to the integration of the physical and digital realms through network connectivity technologies in the healthcare industry. Such integration connects objects, machines and people to transform raw data into actionable information. IoMT can be leveraged to improve healthcare outcomes and reduce the cost of care in a consumer/patient-centered healthcare regime.
