The Internet of Things is having a transformative impact in many sectors, and healthcare is no exception. From individual smart devices implanted in patients’ bodies, such as connected insulin pumps and heart rate monitors, through to devices aimed at monitoring health and wellbeing in the home, to connected equipment which enable the sharing of information in clinical settings, there are myriad variations of healthcare IoT. What they have in common is their ability to intelligent harness data, and use it to ultimately improve patient outcomes.
Being a business leader is an all-encompassing job. When the buck stops with you – when you are ultimately responsible for every aspect of your organisation, from your financial bottom line to your employees’ wellbeing – it can be difficult to take time out. But, just as you sometimes need to turn off a piece of technology to update and reboot, so it is vital for CEOs to take time out from their organisations every now and again.
