Health Wearables – Just Hype or Revolutionary for Patients?
March 4, 2015
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
The buzz: Health. Wearables like wrist bands, watches, glasses, and contact lenses are the NBT. Why? They can now measure body conditions and use the data to support healthier living, disease prevention, and faster rehab. But will patients actively track and share wearables-generated data, despite privacy concerns? And are wearables precise enough to meet medical device quality standards? The experts speak. Lynne Dunbrack, IDC Health Insights: “…When the familiar pen-and-paper methods of self-analysis are enhanced by sensors that monitor our behavior automatically, the process of self-tracking becomes both more alluring and more meaningful.” (Gary Wolf) Greg Reh, Deloitte Consulting: “For a busy doctor, the ability to use email would save more lives than a Fitbit.” (Jeff Tangney) Joe Miles, SAP: “Connected gadgets that are indistinguishable from their disconnected peers will fuel the growth of wearable technology.” (Roger Bate) Join us for Health Wearables – Hype or Revolutionary?
