The medical industry is starting to realize the ways IoT can help with improving healthcare through the use of connected devices, says Flex's Dr. Kal Patel.

Dr Kal Patel, SVP Digital Health at Flex, explains why he sees IoT as a massive opportunity for the medtech industry. He says that until now, once a drug or a medical device is prescribed for a patient, it is difficult to record any more data from that individual – but smart, connected devices could have a significant role to play in improving healthcare in future.
