American healthcare is at a crossroads. Barreling down the highway in one direction is the relentless rise of the cost of medical care. In the other direction comes a desire on the part of patients and doctors to use modern medicine to stay healthy, not to get well. The result is a shifting of our understanding of what our national health care system should look like. One thing just about everyone seems to agree on is the critical role that technology is starting to play in transforming our current system to meet both of these objectives. No technology is showing more promise than the intersection of M2M (Machine-to Machine) and creating the Internet of Healthcare Things enabled by 4G LTE.
