The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR or Industry 4.0) is the ongoing automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern smart technology.
This is widely used in engineering and manufacturing, and is being adopted in healthcare services, life sciences, construction, logistics and supply chain management, and many other sectors.
What we found out
We've been investigating relationships between Industry 4.0 and Healthcare and the transitions to increase interconnectivity, automation and smart decision making. The integration context of Industry 4.0 into healthcare is only partly understood. Little was done until now to consolidate what is known on the integration benefits and the challenges.
We found a number of different perspectives of Healthcare 4.0, ranging from strategic to tactical and operational levels. Next, our results show: (i) nine applications of Industry 4.0 in the Healthcare domain: Augmented Reality and Simulation, Autonomous Robotics, Cybersecurity, Big Data Analytics, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing, Additive Manufacturing and Systems Integration; and (ii) 10 benefits and nine challenges in Healthcare 4.0. The most frequently mentioned benefits are patients' diagnosis, monitoring, treatment, and financial benefits. The most researched challenges are data fragmentation, heterogeneity, complexity, and privacy.
How we are going to help in this project
We are working with Industry 4.0 leaders to bring the best industrial IoT, data analytics, AI, cyber and machine learning experts together to deliver proof of concept, business use cases and rapid prototyping.
Digital Technology and the Internet have changed how we live and work. We are evolving the way we do business, enabling organisations to increase productivity, tap into new markets and boost profitability.
We are working with pioneers in the fourth industrial revolution, supporting businesses with the latest Industry 4.0 Training Courses and Business Services to ensure they are the earliest adopters of industrial digital technologies.
Our goal is to help business and organisations build creative workforces who thrive on innovation and keep you at the forefront of technological advances. Creating exciting new job opportunities within your business that keeps talent in the region.
