Is Your Digital Health Strategy Thriving, Surviving Or Non-Existent?

More people than ever before are using technology to monitor and track their own health or the health of a loved one. According to the global market research firm Parks Associates, the fitness tracker market is set to nearly triple, reaching $5.4 billion by 2019. These digital health devices are becoming a part of our socio-cultural fabric; mobile fitness trackers and connected clinical devices will be as common an accessory as a smartphone in the next five years.

This quick and significant growth represents enormous potential for healthcare providers as they explore new ways to extend their reach and connect to their patient populations. Care is moving beyond the four walls of the hospital and physician's office, and provider organizations are beginning to invest in the necessary infrastructure and programs to help launch data-driven initiatives.
