Today’s Internet of Things (IoT) solutions have tremendous potential to enhance healthcare operations and generate overall improvements to care outcomes, cost, and efficiency. New IoT solutions for healthcare are smarter and, more importantly, tailored to the needs and requirements of healthcare organizations. In this Advisor, we explore two practical use cases of IoT solutions in healthcare.
Cybersecurity vulnerability management for medical devices is an area of concern for both medical device manufacturers and healthcare delivery organizations. The issues related to updates, configuration, and patch management are extremely challenging in the medical domain, especially with ransomware attacks designed to exploit well-known technologies used in medical devices. The article describes a centralized service and continuous patch delivery that can be adopted as an industry practice for medical device manufacturers, and is an important read for all cybersecurity and healthcare professionals.
In this final installment of our series on intelligent process automation (IPA) in the enterprise, we cover the remaining key industries where surveyed organizations see IPA having its greatest impact.
As we explore in this Advisor, new Internet of Things (IoT) solutions for healthcare are smarter and, more importantly, tailored to the needs and requirements of healthcare organizations. With 5G being rolled out, now is the time for healthcare providers to set their IoT roadmaps.
The four articles in this companion issue of CBTJ on sustainability explore the ways that technology can be used to monitor and improve the sustainability of a wide range of processes, industrial and otherwise.
According to a Cutter Consortium survey examining IPA adoption in the enterprise, organizations rank retail as the sixth leading industry in which IPA will have its most significant impact. Retailers are applying robotic process automation (RPA) and other process automation tools bolstered with machine learning (ML), predictive analytics, and computer vision to a number of applications and domains. This Advisor explores how these tools help make their supply chains more flexible, revitalize the retail shopping experience, and boost customer satisfaction in both online and in-store scenarios.
Cutter Consortium recently conducted a survey to see how organizations are adopting, or planning to adopt, intelligent process automation (IPA). According to survey respondents, IPA will have the most significant impact on banking and financial services (see Figure 1). In this Advisor, we take a closer look at two areas of IPA application in that industry: customer experience (CX) and compliance and financial crimes prevention.
In Part X of this Executive Update series on IPA in the enterprise, we examine findings covering the key industries in which organizations see IPA having its greatest impact.
