Event Details

According to research by Frost and Sullivan, the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) market stood at $22.5 billion in 2016, and poised to reach $72 billion by 2021. Given the economic promise of IoMT, this SoCalBio Digital Health Summit seeks to take a deeper look at the opportunities and challenges it presents, particularly for the Greater Los Angeles region which is considered one of the top five IoT and digital health clusters in the country. In addition to showcasing some of the gadgets and new IoMT technologies developed in Southern California, this Summit provides a forum for digital health stakeholders to discuss:

  • How IoMT is expected to affect wellness and disease management. 
  • How to overcome challenges to IoMT innovation adoption.
  • How to leverage big data solutions to improve and reduce the cost of patient care.
  • Action steps to strengthen the Greater Los Angeles IoMT and digital health ecosystem.
