The Rise of IoT in Healthcare [#Infographic]

New networking and cybersecurity demands will come into play as Internet of Things adoption skyrockets in healthcare.

The Internet of Healthcare Things is coming — and for all intents and purposes, it’s already here. According to a new report by Aruba Networks, by next year, 87 percent of healthcare organizations will have adopted IoT. Moreover, more than three-quarters of these organizations believe the technology will completely transform the healthcare industry.

As IoT is injected into everything from X-ray machines to patient monitors and hospital meters, networking demands will change and providers will need to revamp cybersecurity to address an increasingly connected threat landscape.

But alongside these infrastructure needs will come several benefits and an increased return on investment for care organizations that choose to embrace a connected future.
