Nanobots, Wearables, and Other IoT Innovations that Explode with Healthcare Data
By Elle Wood

Data has changed our world.. From our cars, homes, pets, and even our own bodies, data has opened our eyes to behavior patterns and allowed us to catch on to small issues before they become bigger problems. This phenomenon has made huge waves in the healthcare industry, including reducing operational costs, improving independent living, and increasing early detection of diseases. With the wildfire set by the Internet of Things, healthcare data from wearables and other mHealth devices are helping patients take a more informed and active role in their healthcare, and give doctors more insight into diagnosis and treatment plans.

According to Employee Benefit Research Institute, more than one-fourth of the US population use wearables, wireless medical devices, and apps to manage their health. How many steps did you take today? How many calories did you consume? How’s your heart rate today? Thanks to the Internet of Things, we get play-by-play data points enabling us to have more responsibility for and a stronger awareness of our lifestyle. More importantly, this access gives us a more accurate picture of own health—one that may help explain what’s going on when we are sick.

Everyone on WebMD.com: “Do I have a cold or is my leg going to fall off?

Many of us have experienced that moment when we are so sure that those cold symptoms are in fact a sign of something more serious… based on the twenty minutes we spent on WebMD.com. Most of the time, thankfully and hopefully, we are wrong. However there are times when you know something just isn’t right. In terms of diagnosis, no one is a better advocate for your health than you are, but wouldn’t it be great to have more precise answers? Data can provide just that. In fact, Google’s Nanobots are not only revolutionizing the way we get information, but also the speed at which we are able to obtain it. These nanobots allow physicians to get a better profile of the patient and detect dangerous diseases.. With the massive amounts of data obtained, doctors are not diagnosing on a symptom by symptom case, but by a more holistic view of the patient’s overall health. This, stronger diagnosis and a more effective treatment plan can be put in place. However, we’ll need a bulletproof analytics tool to make quick sense of all the data first.

Software is key to delivering enhanced patient experience

For healthcare businesses, it’s important to understand that software is central to turning collected data into health information, that can be utilized to enhance patient experience. Therefore it’s essential that applications used to analyze collected patient data operate without question – as the consequences can be as stark as life and death. On top of this, healthcare providers will need to understand how patients are utilizing associated health applications and how they are performing, in order to ensure necessary experience.

AppDynamics helps with both of these areas. First, unified monitoring ensures that healthcare related software operates without issue. Second, application analytics can help innovative healthcare providers understand how their apps are used by patients plus how to enhance experience in order to maintain and gain loyalty.

When Enterprises started adopting Hadoop-based Big Data environments over the last ten years, they were mainly on-premise deployments. Organizations would spin up and manage large Hadoop clusters, where they would funnel exabytes or petabytes of unstructured data.However, over the last few years the economics of maintaining this enormous infrastructure compared with the elastic scalability of viable cloud options has changed this equation. The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
