Envisioning the Future: Hospitals Fully Integrated with Medical Device Connectivity Solutions PR Newswire MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Sept. 19, 2012 - Convergence of medical devices and information systems examined at the 4th Annual Medical Device Connectivity Conference & Exhibition MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Sept. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning in the 1980s, hospitals started looking toward the adoption of medical device connectivity solutions to create the optimal care setting. Beginning with high volume or high risk applications, many initial connectivity efforts were in the areas of diagnostics, surgery and the ICU. In the intervening years, connectivity has matured and expanded. However, the present medical device connectivity solutions are challenged by those applications that are highly variable. Today's hurdles seek to automate fluctuating workflows, like medication administration or medical device interoperability, where devices must automatically adjust to a patient's changing clinical condition. Frost & Sullivan is proud to announce the participation of Advanced Medical Technologies Global Program Manager Siddharth Saha and Industry Manager Venkat Rajan in the 4th Annual Medical Device Connectivity Conference & Exhibition, taking place Nov. 1 to 2, 2012 at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center at the Harvard Medical School in Boston, Mass.

Martin Conference Center at the Harvard Medical School inBoston, Mass.The acute care (hospital) market is the principal focus of this event, although the extension into ambulatory markets from acute care is a growing trend that will be discussed. "This conference is focused on workflow automation through the integration of medical device and information systems," said Principal of Medical Connectivity Consulting and Conference Chairperson Tim Gee."Relevant enabling technologies are also a focus and include: wireless, networking, real time location systems, alarm notification, privacy and security, risk management and related topics." The co-presentation by Frost & Sullivan's Saha and Rajan will evaluate the path moving forward, conceptualizing how hospitals in the near future could be configured to operate with full integration of medical device connectivity solutions. The roles of ecosystem stakeholders will be explored, considering how payers, manufacturers, providers and technology assessment entities impact connectivity solution adoption. The presentation will consider changing customer needs, as framed against current barriers and challenges to adoption. How new and emerging technologies are shaping connectivity solutions will be discussed, along with evolutions and innovations in business models impacting manufacturers and healthcare providers both. The 4th Annual Medical Device Connectivity Conference & Exhibition will benefit executives and clinicians at hospitals, healthcare systems, physician groups and health plans, including biomedical engineering, clinical engineering and IT staff. The insights derived from this event will also impact medical device and IT company professionals, including marketing, sales and engineering staff, in addition to management consultants, government officials, academics and the
