In the broadest sense, IoT encompasses everything connected to the internet. It is increasingly being used to define objects that "talk" to each other. Devices ranging from simple sensors, smartphones and wearables to complex medical devices inside people or pills that can be swallowed. This meetup will explore the value of IoT in Healthcare and showcase a few examples of its potential.
