Technology increasingly keeps us connected with each other and with the businesses and governments we interact with. There are ways we haven't even begun to imagine yet that this convergence of people and technology will impact our day to day lives, how we run our businesses and expectations we have for immediacy of response. Are we becoming more impatient? Does instant gratification now trump 'worth the wait'? I think the answer to this is yes, in some cases it is quite true. Furthermore it can be a really good thing -- increasing immediacy of results can bring real improvement to the quality of our lives.
Consider some of the incredible things happening in health care with mission-critical technologies. Today a patient's heart can be monitored through a reliable wireless network connected to ultra-reliable servers and systems that can monitor a patient's vital signs, detect abnormalities and provide automatic, instant notifications to the person's physician. Remote monitoring means:
- better use of hospital resources by freeing up hospital beds
- reducing unnecessary doctor visits
- providing the patient with more freedom and independence
- providing the patient with reassurance of proactive care and early warning of trouble
