Workshop on the Internet of Things wellness and care ecosystem: enablers and barriers

 

 4-5 October 2018  Cornell-Tech, New York

 

This workshop will examine the state of play, opportunities and challenges in expanding the availability and use of the Internet of Things (IOT) to enhance wellness, deliver effective remote care, prevent hospital re-admissions and support functional ability. It will discuss existing policies and use cases highlighting good practices to help policy makers move beyond the hype and promote the positive elements of the IoT while minimising risks.

Specifically, the workshop will aim to review:

  • Best use cases and public policy advances across public and private sectors 
  • The value and potential benefits of a better developed IoT-based health care environment
  • Main challenges and policy implications with a special focus on data governance, privacy and organisational accountability
  • Technical, legal and public policy barriers that need to be addressed
