  15. 15. Hospital Pharmacy Telemedicine Patient Lab/ Rad Payers Ambulance SMALL DATA ^ = BIG DATA PLATFORM Standardized Syntax, Semantics, Registries, Meta Data Universal Translators, Connectors, Interfaces, Analytics
  16. 16. IOT PLATFORM LEADERS Apple: Powerful platforms HomeKit, HealthKit, ResearchKit are combined with Health App and "things" e.g. iPhone, Apple Watch and iPad. Partnerships with UC San Francisco, Massachusetts General and Stanford in the areas of diabetes, asthma, Parkinson's disease, and breast cancer. Google: Acquisition of Nest, Home Hub maker Revolv. Create an OS platform akin to Android known as Brillo. Communication protocols known as Weave. Conjunction with the Google Cloud for Big Data. Partnerships with Novartis, Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ), DexCom (NASDAQ:DXCM) and LabQuest that leverage Google's intellectual property. Samsung: Android ecosystem player. Own OS - Tizen called "OS of Everything". Analogous to GE (NYSE:GE) Healthcare, Samsung offers an extensive line of healthcare products ranging from CT scanners to diagnostic tools.
  17. 17. SECOND LINE CHALLENGERS Qualcomm: AllJoyn IoT framework. Open, secure and universal framework. Enable interoperability among nearby devices, products and applications across platforms and operating systems.

  22. 22. ODDS AND ENDS o Computing/network infrastructure can deal with security But privacy is a policy matter. Anonymizing of databases helps but it isn’t fool-proof. In general, people are the weakest security and privacy link o HIPAA has been there for a while but more is needed for HCIoT. o Medicare Telehealth Parity Act of 2015 has been introduced in US Congress o Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA), which outlines the procedures to identify and trace key prescription drugs as they traverse the supply chain in the USA. o FDA's Unique Device Identifier regulations that require medical devices to embed UDIs in "machine readable form" another obvious driver for HCIoT apps
  23. 23. HCIOT INFRASTRUCTURE o Prepare the IT infrastructure for Transaction load of IoT as it increases the transaction load multiple times o Wi-fi in wards for doctors to take notes and give orders thru tablets? o Single site design difficult to change to multi-site later o Cloud, or hosted data center? If In-house – Plan for BCP and DR? o Carriers e.g. Reliance Jio, Qualcomm, Varizon, Comcast, AT&T building HCIoT Platforms - able to connect any Network – 3G, 4G, CDMA, GSM, Li-Fi, ISP, MPLS. o New players who are IoT specialists will emerge, likely offering very focused HCIoT features and services e.g. privately held SigFox touts a healthcare vertical.
  24. 24. HIPAA TITLE II Title II: Preventing Health Care Fraud and Abuse; Administrative Simplification; Medical Liability Reform o Data Privacy o Transactions and Code Sets o Data Security o Unique Identifiers
  25. 25. DATA PRIVACY o Protected Health Information (PHI) o Right to keep personal information from outside world o Hospital staff, in-house and outsourced IT staff may be authorized to see data and may disclose it inappropriately o Protect sensitive information – Gender of unborn and MTP are sensitive info o Positive results for sensitive Lab tests – HIV, Hepatitis B etc. o Public health research - Anonymised data compromised o Don’t want data of one landing up on another’s desk – Registry for People Identity, Facility Identity to be fool proof o Dr Parminder Singh = Dr P Singh ! o Dr Paramjit Singh = Dr P Singh ?
  26. 26. TRANSACTIONS AND CODE SETS o Syntax and Semantic integration challenge – codify diagnosis, procedures and order sets o Data Analytics challenge - standard terminology for clinical notes o Diabetes with MI discharged with B- blocker o Diabetes with Coronary Atherosclerosis discharged with B-blocker o Type-II Diabetes with CHF discharged with Metoprolol
  27. 27. o HCIoT is fraught with network and data security concerns. A former US VP feared the worst and got the Wi-Fi switched off for his pacemaker. o US FDA and Congress is also waking up to the new IoT paradigm! o Network security o Firewalls, o Data centre, o IT Support Teams, Outsourcing o Data Security - Encryption o Public/Private keys NETWORK AND DATA SECURITY
  28. 28. o Hacking sophisticated medical devices. Change calibrations of lab, bedside and ICU equipment. Backdoor entry to critical Healthcare IT systems. Hacking Remotely operated surgical robots. o Authentication - are you who you say you are? o Passwords, Biometrics (finger print, retinal scan), smartcards o Authority - do you have a need to know? o User U in role R who satisfies constraint C has permission P o Ms Ann working as Nurse in ED has r/w/x permissions; whereas she doesn’t have those permissions offduty o Ensure only authenticated users to perform authorized activities on authorized data o Audit - record of who actually got into what o Record of every entry, correction, change, over ride etc PHYSICAL SECURITY
  29. 29. HEALTH INFORMATION EXCHANGE IoT integration between multiple systems o Meta data based integration o Physician Registry - Dr Om Prakash Singh in ENT vs Dr OP Singh in Otolaryngology? o Patient Registry o Disease Registry o Document Registry
  30. 30. Transformative Leadership Next Practices Process Innovation Incremental Improvements Existing Operational ModelsObsolete Resilience Business as Usual Short Term Gains Long Term Success
  31. 31. QUOTE FROM MOTHER OF NURSING “The effect on sickness of beautiful objects, on variety of objects and especially brilliancy of colours, is hardly to be appreciated. Such cravings are usually called the “fancies” of patients but these “fancies” are the most valuable indication of that which is necessary for their recovery. People say that the effect is only on the mind. It is no such thing. The effect is on the body too. Little as we know about the way in which we are affected by form and colour and light, we do know this: that they have an actual and physical effect. Variety of form and brilliance of colour in the objects presented to patients are an actual means of recovery” - Florence Nightingale Contact: Dr Pankaj Gupta Partner, Taurus Glocal Consulting Website: Blog: LinkedIn:
