Application Resilience and Antifragility from the Internet of Medical Devices to Healthcare Governance Systems

  title={Application Resilience and Antifragility from the Internet of Medical Devices to Healthcare Governance Systems},
  author={Rodolfo A. Fiorini and Giulia F. Santacroce},
For Healthcare, the potential bene ts of applying "Internet of Medical Devices" (IoMD) to solve both the cost problem and to improve patient safety and outcomes are tremen- dous. The medical industry is quickly adopting mobile technology (mHealth) as a means of connecting lay users with medical professionals. Unfortunately, current apps can be quite fragile to unespected event, and unpredictable changes can be very disorienting at enterprise level. These major changes, usually discontinuities…
