Aim and objectives:

The emerging field of Internet-of-things holds a great potential to meet the unmet needs of healthcare. However, to become applicable in clinical practice, IoT technologies demand research, development, testing, and trials, since these systems are intended to be a part of both hospitals and naturalistic environments such as homes. This workshop will demonstrate state-of-the-art IoT technologies–wearable sensors, body area sensors, advanced pervasive healthcare systems, and mobile to cloud computing–that are aimed at providing telehealth interventions to patients with specific diseases/disorders and to individuals for a healthier lifestyle. This workshop will also provide valuable insights to researchers and engineers on how to design IoT systems that empower medical experts to remotely monitor and intervene with patients. The aim of this workshop is to initiate conversations among technologists, engineers, and clinicians to synergize their efforts in producing low-cost, high-performance, highly-efficient, deployable IoT systems.  This workshop is partially funded through the National Science Foundation grant CNS-1702950 together with Finnish partners under the NSF WiFiUS program.
