The IoT Component
It may seem a little abstract, but today, IT and healthcare are rapidly becoming a single discipline, and the key is two trends. One is IoT, or the Internet of Things, and the other is cloud computing. Through cloud computing, it’s now feasible for IoT tech to be internationally facilitated. It’s supposed that in the next several years, IoT devices will outnumber humans three to one.
Several applications of IoT tech which are already in development include contact lenses which surrogate smartphones, heart devices, RFID chips, and even certain brain surgery techniques. These things will only continue to expand as technology does, and they will definitely require components which are deftly constructed by professional experts.
Additionally, each individual person is different. Groups like Weiss-Aug.com will feature custom assembly—this group already provides such solutions; as the website puts it: “Many programs require assembly of multiple stamped and/or molded products. In addition to insert molding, we also offer other assembly services.”
As IoT becomes integrated with biological functionality, the existing cloud applications will upgrade to match human biorhythms. Consider Clockspot, as an example; an application which, as their website notes, allows managers to: “Manage timesheets in real-time.” There are many applications like this currently available.in
How Things May Change
Companies like Clockspot have nothing to do with medicine now, but as IoT technology becomes an increasingly integral component of daily life across the world, such organizations will begin developing apps which are designed for biological functionality. Cloud apps will naturally expand to the biosphere.
Soon the IoT will give way to the IoM, or the “Internet of Me”. As human beings become increasingly integrated into the web, it will be necessary to design interfaces which function technologically, but are biologically secure. Surprisingly, companies behind medical advancement are going to shift dramatically as such innovations take the market.
The medical device supplier Weiss-Aug of today may be surrogated by Motorola as differing cybernetic solutions change the way we think of technology and health. Though that certainly isn’t the case now! Still, the development of specialized components to order is an integral component of modern technology, and likely won’t abate any time soon.
If you’re not familiar with Moore’s law, it’s a principle which stipulates that technology of the computational variety doubles on itself every eighteen to twenty-four months (depending on who you ask). Now that computational expansion trickles down to non-computational tech solutions.
Some Surprising Applications Of Burgeoning Tech
Consider cars which drive themselves, or smartphones which can control LEDs because a tiny WiFi device has been installed to mitigate luminosity. Medicine is more important than either cars or LEDs, and contemporary healthcare providers would do well to consider just what kind of impact these trends may have in the future.
Finely developed components from industry leaders and well-received cloud applications can do nothing against two problems: general human error, and hacking. IoT has blind spots a mile wide, but it’s expanding so quickly those blind spots are difficult to catch and close.
For this reason it’s integral that any IoT utility that is brought to the table must necessarily take into account the security of those most likely to make use of it. To that end, finding an MSP on the cutting edge makes a lot of sense. As IoT continues its expansion, that MSP may merge with a given healthcare clinic.
It’s hard to say exactly what’s going to drive technology transformation in the next twenty years or so, but what seems evident is that it will play an increasingly prominent role in daily life, and the companies that design such components and applications as described here are likely to be the movers and shakers behind that prominence.
