In interview with iMedical Apps, Eric Yablonka, CIO of the University of Chicago hospitals and Pritzker School of Medicine said:
"The coming evolution in the sector of biomedical devices that are now wireless enabled, such as sensor and body area networks, implantable sensors - we see these things coming fast and furious over the next four to five years.
Their evolution will come very rapidly and there has to be a way to connect those in a meaningful way. You know, the iPhone 4S has the Bluetooth Low Energy capability, the first device in the US with this technology.'
