A triumphant year for IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) is one of the technologies that has had the greatest impact in recent years, it is no longer limited to one or other sectors, we now have it present in many of the objects we use every day, in industrial processes, in companies, in our homes and some healthcare systems around the world are beginning to incorporate it to have greater control and precision of the data.

In an article on IoT predictions for 2021 published in the newspaper La Vanguardia, I have shared my opinion on the impact of this technology in the health sector, which, due to the global health situation, has gained great prominence in the last year and will continue to grow, especially the sensing of devices to monitor the patients’ health in their homes. Here is a part of the article in which I discuss the application of IoT in the healthcare sector.

 “Today, technology gives us incredible possibilities at a relatively low cost. However, the expert emphasizes the need for this technology to be accessible to everyone if it is to be implemented in the home”. 

In addition, the integration of these new technologies must be optimal for professionals in the sector. According to Corchado this can be a complicated task at the present moment. “The networks of most hospitals are not ready. Changing certain types of trends and habits takes years or decades. By the time this can be done, the technology may be much more mature and exciting.

Surely, this will be a triumphant year for IoT, the sectors that are applying it are already seeing its benefits and will continue to do so as this technology improves their processes.
