Abstract [en]

This study is written by two students at Linköping University, studying the Systems Science program. It is a qualitative study in the form of case study where empirical data is collected from Region Östergötland. We conducted three interviews where everyone had a connection to the Internet of Things within medical technology. The positions of the interviewees are IT Security Officer, Unit Manager on Test and Innovation and MT Strategist.The study is about what the Internet of Things within medical technology and how it affects the healthcare and patients from a success and safety perspective. There is no clear definition of Internet of Things within medical technology. Is Internet of Things medical technology or is it a part of medical technology? Our definition is that if data is collected and sent on to the Internet's architecture for analysis and have a medical purpose, it’s a medical product that uses Internet of Things.We also have identified a number of advantages and disadvantages with this type of technology in healthcare. It allows, among other things, aftercare at home in a new way, and the collection of data about a patient in a simplier way. The disadvantages are the unsafety in these products as they lack many security measures. Most likely, the security has been lost because of pressure from the consumer market to always have the latest technology in healthcare. There are two parties that are responsible for the safety of a medical device that uses the Internet of Things and these are the healthcare and the supplier. Internet of Things has revolutionized medical technology and in the future we will see more of these types of products within the healthcare sector.
