(IS-2013-78) The future of connected health devices
This report from IBM explores the practically underserved portion of the health device market comprised of information seekers that are neither fitness-focused nor chronically ill. These consumers are relatively healthy, but could use some help managing a health-related challenge. As our environments at home and on the go grow more instrumented, interconnected and intelligent, health monitoring solutions also can become more intuitive, comprehensive and affordable – all critically important factors in winning over information seekers and healthcare payers. Likewise, the analytical insights enabled by this groundswell of information will be invaluable to the healthcare and life sciences communities.
