About IoH

The percentage of the US GDP spent on healthcare each year far exceeds that of other developed countries; a real need to reduce healthcare costs, provide more integrated and evidence-based care exists.

IoT not only brings advanced preventative treatment, patient monitoring and aftercare, but also offers the opportunity to change behavioural, physical and social conditions which have a huge impact on healthcare costs and the standard of care.

Join a wide audience of government, private and not-for-profit payers and providers, at the only conference in the US market which brings IoT health case studies that tell ROI stories, rather than just show future technologies.

Learn and network with only payers, providers, and a handful of selected technology providers impacting the digital healthcare landscape. IoT Health US is the only IoT event focused on delivering high quality case studies for a high calibre, healthcare audience.

2.10 – 2.50pm ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION: Reducing Readmission Rates

With the United States healthcare system transitioning from a volume-based model to a system that puts the focus on value, it is essential for healthcare providers to understand how to improve the quality of care. With new model requirements, healthcare providers must dramatically reduce readmission rates.

IoT-enabled sensors and wearables represent a key opportunity for cutting costs and improving the care of the chronically ill, commonly referred to as Remote Patient Monitoring. Set to transform the way patients are cared for in the years ahead, the Remote Patient Monitoring industry grew by 44% in 2016 and is forecasted to save the United States healthcare industry a staggering $700 Billion in the next 15 years.

However, it is critical to analyze the results on Remote Patient Monitoring so far to understand the extent to which these IoT-enabled technologies are reducing readmission rates and healthcare costs.

Breaking into different discussion groups and then bringing together the audience to share feedback, this Roundtable Discussion session will give attendees the opportunity to share their thoughts on how Remote Patient Monitoring and other IoT strategies are helping healthcare organizations reduce readmission rates.

Key Discussion Points:
