by Parks Associates | Aug. 24, 2016

New Parks Associates research reveals that one in seven U.S. broadband households are interested in a remote health monitoring solution, offered by a hospital/physician group, and receiving reminders from them about how to manage chronic health conditions. The international research firm will address patient engagement at the third-annual Connected Health Summit: Engaging Consumers, August 30 – September 1 in San Diego. The event spotlights health technologies as part of the Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon and the transformational impact of these connected solutions on the U.S. healthcare system.

Parks Associates would like to thank the following sponsors for their support in organizing this year’s event:
