Healthcare is necessary for our well-being and survival, but healthcare activities produce a large amount of infectious and hazardous waste which poses a large threat to its environment. There is a need for proper management of these wastes. There are rules, regulations and guidelines put in place for management of biomedical waste by government and regulatory bodies, yet gaps exist between statutory requirements and the waste management systems in practice. With large number of hospitals and clinics opening up, it creates a challenge for management of biomedical waste. An exploratory survey was conducted to identify the problems and pain points in biomedical waste management and study the market perception of IoT enabled waste management solutions for biomedical waste. The study highlighted that biomedical waste is not being collected on time and the space for storing biomedical waste before disposal is insufficient in clinics and small hospitals. The study also showed that there was a lack of awareness of IoT enabled solutions, yet the interest for such solutions was positive.
