The use of IoT for assisting remote health monitoring in remote situations, away from Primary healthcare centre, is currently under developed, significantly impeding the ability for economic remote care provisioning to patients - a vital need for sustainable Public Health delivery and management. There are a number of community led initiatives for enabling independent living for the elderly and those living alone, but there is little penetration of clinical qualified technologies for secondary or tertiary care. IoT assistive technologies have been limited in their use for healthcare, for a range of reasons, but primary amongst these has been ensuring security and reliability of the gathered data across a broad range of underlying sensor and ICT technologies and associated hard identity metrics to the devices and the persons that use them. These have hinder adoption. The Irish Government supported Project Nex (under the Disruptive Technology and Innovation Fund) looks to address this deficit.
The current talk gives and ealry stage insight into the goals and ambitions of Nex.
