This sub-ecosystem of living experience involves use of various sophisticated technologies, as the need be. However, not all sophisticated technologies, including the advice of an expert, can be always available to all. Therefore a growing demand exists for remote health and monitoring systems, as well as the need to share health and wellness data.
The category healthcare invites participants to provide innovative solutions to current trends in healthcare, using IoT, to make it simple for those who access it and solutions to transform the healthcare ecosystem into a well-connected one. Given the fact that healthcare is a “need” and not a “want”, it is going to be exciting to see who edges out the rest of the finalists and emerge victorious.Those who made it to finals in this category, with their innovative solutions to healthcare are:
