Why WAMI?

The IoMT market is exploding with millions of new devices and creating both economic boom and promise for improved patient care. According to Nexeon there are 3.7 million connected medical devices in use (as of February 2017) and Allied Research has estimated the IoT healthcare market will reach $136.8 billion by 2021.

The data currently generated from these devices could deliver much promise in advancing the future of medicine and clinical research. The explosive growth of this market has brought upon greater demand for more robust and secure devices that can deliver data interoperability, security and trust. The current vulnerabilities of these devices require vested stakeholders – health professionals, regulators, sensor developers, software developers, device manufacturers – to take critical action in exploring frameworks for technical standards and/or policy guidelines to address these critical concerns.

If these critical issues can be resolved, then the ability to tap this well of highly valuable data can be realized for multitude of different applications including but not limited to: advancing clinical research, precision medicine, patient recruitment and engagement for clinical trials, faster and precise diagnostics, and more. To achieve this, we need you to be part of this Workshop, the initiative and the motivated group of professionals who believe that the interoperability of smart/medical devices can be better utilized to help advance the future of medicine.

This is not just a one-time Workshop. The workshop (Day 1) is a key facilitator in presenting the challenges and opportunities to the relevant stakeholders to engage in developing a framework for tech standards and policy recommendations (Day 2) to “smartly” share, protect and utilize patient device data in advancing the future of medicine.

The Education

The Workshop is intended for attendees to learn about the opportunities and challenges surrounding data interoperability of wearable devices within the connected health wearable system – users, software, communications, networks, data, hardware, services, firmware and more.  The forum will tackle the following educational objectives with the goal of engaging a diverse community of stakeholders – regulatory, sensor developers, technologists, and health professionals – to participate in wireless testbeds and workstreams for technical frameworks for standards and tech policy guidelines for patient privacy and consent.

Learning Objectives – Opportunities and Challenges

  1. TECHNOLOGY – Raising the caliber of the devices – more processing and security.
  2. INTEROPERABILITY – Hardware and Software Driving Data Interoperability from device to device, device to blockchain, device to patient
  3. SECURITY – Exploring the use of blockchain/DTLs to secure and protect patient data while enabling trusted users to use verifiable patient data in tamper-proof environments
  4. TRUST in DATA – Validation of patient’s data from the devices for use in clinical applications (ie. clinical trials, research, diagnostics, precision medicine, innovation in medicine)
  5. POLICY & PRIVACY – protecting the patient’s data, meeting regulatory guidelines for hardware interoperability, Patient Protection, Policy and Consent – where technical standards and tech policy guidelines can deliver on this
