The Next Gold Rush Could Be Healthcare IT

Where is all this innovation in IT and technology heading? Healthcare. According to Forbes, over $955 million dollars have been channelled towards this field, this year alone. This represents a tripling of the amount invested over previous years.

If you combine this with the fact that governments are planning to update their Healthcare systems, the ensuing result will be a  growing market with the potential to deliver extremely efficient solutions (for example, technologies such as 3D organ printing or wearable wellness devices) while uniting two distinct fields for a common vision – a better healthcare industry.

Can we talk about a local Internet of Things?

Every day we buy things using our smartphones, tablets or computers. We call a cab using an app. We even measure our temperature or our heart rate with a simple gesture on our devices. It’s very clear that the Internet of Things (IoT) is present in our lives and it’s influencing us in a big way. This, though, is just the beginning.

A study conducted by Gartner, Inc. forecasts that “6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from 2015, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. In 2016, 5.5 million new things will get connected every day.”
