Presenter: Chuck Sabin, Senior Director, Market Development, Bluetooth SIG

Date and Time: 27 April, 8:30am PST / 15:30 GMT


The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated demand for connected healthcare devices and telehealth solutions. In response, medical devices are incorporating Bluetooth® wireless technology in unprecedented numbers. The increased utilization of Bluetooth connectivity in virtual health technology is opening up new opportunities for health, wellness, and medical applications, providing medical practitioners with a simple and secure way to collect data, transfer it to monitoring systems, chart it, analyze it, and act on it in real time.

In this session we will share updated market forecasts, examine new trends and use cases for medical applications embedding Bluetooth® technology, and demonstrate how Bluetooth technology is enabling hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities to deploy smart technology throughout the progression of care, to help improve patient diagnosis, treatment and follow up, and curb healthcare expenditures. We will discuss the benefits of standardization and the role it plays in future-proofing connected healthcare solutions.  In addition, we will explore best practices and key lessons learned from deployments of safe diagnosis and treatment solutions as well as public exposure notification systems and safe return implementations in offices, factories, and schools that help encourage compliance with new guidelines in the wake of the pandemic.
