Gee, I sure hope the following is not a surprise to the FDA: "In the final analysis, most executives are confident digital technology will drive new opportunities in medical electronics for many years to come." Neither should the final sentence in that paragraph be a surprise: "They [medtech execs] are less sure whether those opportunities will be realized in the States."

Wireless enabled medical devices is the future and that will have huge impact in the world. This will become the next big thing after the present fascinations with social media.

I have to look at this from the other end of the spectrum. I'm a Biomedical/Clinical Engineer in the VA. My peers and I are responsible for managing the systems after they are in use. Among other duties, am responsible for managing hazards involving medical equipment once it's deployed nationawide. What I see is a lot of vendors jumping at the bit to dump devices into healthcare without considering useability, lifecycle management or responding to post-market issues. I also see a lot of devices that are being promoted as alarm replacement technologies that aren't reliable enough to do so. The user community would be happy to work with the manufacturers to limit this. We're tired of coming in to fix the devastation left behind after the latest whiz-bang technology doesn't live up to its hype. Paul Sherman

FDA taking more time to approve is right i feel. These are life saving gadgets and to be tested for its reliable functionality without any harm to the people who will use it.FDA can employ more number of experienced people to speed up this process of approving so that more and more advanced gadgets will come faster to extend people's lives

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
