On Tuesday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted unanimously to give consumers a voice in the internet of things, or IoT.
The decision, which will be the first step toward putting internet of stuff into action, comes on the heels of the FCC’s recent move to approve smart home devices like smoke detectors and smart locks.
This year’s decision is expected to have a ripple effect in other industries.
For instance, smart lights could help provide information about how much light your home is receiving in real time.
“We have seen the Internet in a new way that will be disruptive to traditional industries and it’s time to take advantage of it,” said FCC Chairman Ajit Pai in a statement.
The Internet of things will likely become more common as consumers use devices such as smart homes to help them do things like control the air conditioner, light their homes, and turn off lights.
This change, and the rise of consumer connected devices like home automation, could also have major impacts on our healthcare system.
“The Internet of stuff will help improve our health care delivery systems and will open up a new set of opportunities for consumers to innovate, build on the existing, and expand,” said David B. Gorton, executive director of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Association.
“This is a major change for health care, which has been the biggest driver of economic growth in this country over the last few decades.”
In 2020, the U.S. healthcare industry generated $14.4 trillion in revenue, which is roughly one-third of all total economic activity in the country.
With the Internet Of Things becoming more commonplace, there will be more opportunities for the IoT to help drive economic growth, which could help make health care more affordable.
According to a recent report from PricewaterhouseCoopers, the average American household spends $13,000 a year on healthcare, which represents about a 10 percent increase since 2015.
However, according to the Healthcare Management Association, the amount spent on healthcare is expected continue to increase as the demand for health services grows.
The internet of objects could provide the potential for even more opportunity to help people in need.
“For some people with chronic conditions, the internet will be an important tool to help manage and manage their conditions,” said Jennifer Lee, director of IoT for the Institute for Health Information and Communication at Harvard Medical School.
“But the internet also serves as a way to connect people who are not in the same situation and to help connect people to healthcare resources.
The IoT will allow people to access the internet from wherever they are, so there is a real opportunity to connect more people.”
With more healthcare providers using the internet for their services, healthcare providers could benefit from better coordination with their healthcare workers.
The more connected healthcare workers are, the less likely they are to miss appointments or treat people who have been sick for too long.
The future of healthcare is increasingly connected.
With access to healthcare becoming easier and cheaper, the ability to communicate better is a key element of that, as well as the ability for healthcare providers to provide the services that they do best.
With that in mind, the IoT is already having an impact on healthcare.
As more people become connected to the internet, it’s expected that more people will want to go to the doctor.
With smart home and smart home automation becoming more widespread, more people are going to be using the devices to help keep their homes and lives healthy.
“There is a lot of hype around IoT,” said Gort on Tuesday.
“People want to know what is going on, but the reality is it’s not a magic wand.
The things that are really going to change healthcare are the things that can really help the healthcare workforce, the things you can do with the devices that are out there that will make it easier to access healthcare resources.”
For the IoT industry, the shift to the IoT has been a long time coming.
In the early days of the internet in 2015, many companies focused on the internet as a means to deliver services like TV, movies, and news.
But with the rise in connected devices and devices like smart locks and smoke detectors, some are now looking to the future, especially in healthcare.
“I’m hoping to see the Internet becoming a full-blown healthcare technology that we see here in the United States and in other countries, where the internet becomes a full suite of services,” said John DeMuth, chief innovation officer for BlueWave Health.
“When we talk about the IoT, I’m thinking of the Internet as a service that you can use to manage a home, manage your health, or your workplace.
That is an area where the IoT can really take off.”
