Mobile health app adoption rates are going through the roof with a massive number of apps used by consumers and patients who are not only using their smartphones and smart watches, amongst other interconnected devices, to monitor their health, but also to receive expert diagnosis from remote proximities in the comfort of their own homes.
It is heading to a point where patients get treated without ever stepping a foot inside the hospital, and this number is only going to increase as more and more people are already willing to try out the latest health and remote diagnosis apps.
While technology-adoption is on the rise in the healthcare industry, it is the threat of hacking and insufficient security measures which is keeping close to 50% of the people from trying out any connected healthcare device. The day doesn’t seem too far when hackers can gain the ability to hack connected medical devices such as insulin pumps and pacemakers!
As a result, in the coming years, hospital administrations and the healthcare industry in general will become more proactive when it comes to securing their medical equipment. This in turn means top-notch network architectural services will have to become a norm rather than an oddity.
