The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the healthcare industry. By remotely capturing medical data, facilitating medication delivery, and improving healthcare accessibility, IoT devices today are changing the practice of medicine and helping save more lives.
Tech fads often easily come off as mere gimmicks, but they can actually be an opportunity for your business to optimize processes and save money. To seize that game changer your company has been looking for, follow these tips.
Be an early adopter
One of the biggest factors in determining how successful your SMB will be in leveraging a new trend is how early you get in.
From mobile apps that assist with taking medicine on time to smart appliances that monitor vitals, the Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous in healthcare. However, IoT’s expansion brings new risks, vulnerabilities, and security challenges for healthcare practitioners and their patients.
Have you seen folks wandering around, staring at their phone like it was a map pointing to a pot of gold? Or ordering pizza over a Facebook conversation with an awkward cashier? With some creative marketing and structuring, your SMB could be on the other side of those people’s phones.
The general rule of thumb of cybersecurity is: Anything that connects to the internet can be hacked. With the increasing popularity of Internet of Things (IoT) in the workplace, every business should be on high alert, especially those in the healthcare industry where patients' well-being hinge on the security of the device.
What tech fads has your SMB recently written off as silly and not worth your time? 3D printing, internet of things…Pokémon GO? Juvenile as they may seem at first, these trends helped to make a lot of businesses a lot of money. Navigating the quickly rising and falling auspices of the tech world may seem like a lost cause, but with the right know-how, you can make, connect, and catch profits by exploiting the tech trends of the day.
