Connected health takes on new momentum as technology and healthcare start to converge

New research suggests that consumer adoption of connected heath products has reached aa new high in 2017. Over 40 percent of U.S. broadband households now own a connected health product, up from 37 percent in 2016 and 33 percent in 2015. The convergence of medical technology and connected health will be the main theme of fourth-annual Connected Health Summit: Engaging Consumers, August 29-31 in San Diego, USA.

“The steady increase in consumer adoption of connected health products bodes well for the ongoing healthcare practice transformation,” says Harry Wang, senior director of research at Parks Associates, which is running the summit. “At the Connected Health Summit, we will examine the latest trends and opportunities in the med-tech industry and how the evolving healthcare industry can transform patient experiences.”

The summit will discuss the implications of the connected healthcare revolution and the resulting consumerization of healthcare. Confirmed keynotes for the event include executives from Aetna Digital, Geisinger Health System, Sharecare Inc., and UnitedHealth Group.

In the session “Pursuing Value-Based Care to Deliver Superior Outcomes,” healthcare providers and their technology solution providers present successful strategies in delivering patient care in a value-based payment environment and share their perspective on the roles of technology solutions in transforming care practices and patient experience.
