The health insurer industry recognizes that the current way of doing business is not sustainable long term. Insurers either keep shifting more cost to consumers, resulting in consumers directly doing business with care providers, or they kept raising premiums, bankrupting consumers, and eventually causing their own demise—either out of business or government moves in to create a single payer system. As current thinking goes, insurers want to change their role from a gatekeeper...

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a market status report on telehealth and remote health monitoring last month. Though nothing new from my knowledge gain per se, it is a good read and reminds me of how slow the reimbursement policy has evolved since I started covering digital health in 2006. CMS is the gatekeeper of Medicare’s reimbursement policy and has historically been slow to embrace telehealth or remote health monitoring for fear of over-utilization and cost...
 
On February 8th, Verizon moved to introduce its new—and first—smart watch, the Wear24 . The Wear24 is one of the first Android Wear 2.0 devices. Its standout feature is that it offers LTE connectivity, and is capable of making and receiving calls and texts without being paired to a nearby smartphone. (You still need to have a phone on Verizon's network, though.) Like the LG Watch Sport—another Wear 2.0 device, developed by LG in partnership with Google—the Wear24 offers...

As usual, CES 2017 was a four-day extravaganza of innovations from the smartest connected car innovations to the latest bendable/flexible battery. In the digital health section of the show floor, two companies caught my attention—Israel-based TytoCare and South Korea’s Partron/Croise. Both design and manufacture what I call “personal health hub” devices. TytoCare’s hub (the TytoHome model on the right) is a half-palm-sized device with accessories that currently...

Some of the most interesting news to come out of CES this year had to do with virtual reality. With the upcoming release of the Windows Holographic System and VR headsets for around $300, it seems like 2017 may be the year that VR goes mainstream. But what does this mean for fitness and healthcare? One example of what we can expect in terms of fitness is VirZOOM. The VirZOOM platform includes a stationary bicycle that works in combination with a VR headset and accompanying software...
