2014 was a watershed year for the connected health market.

It was the maiden year for health insurance exchanges, and a record number of ACOs formed to deliver accountable care. Large consumer electronics companies, including Apple, Google, and Samsung, officially entered the consumer health and wellness market, leading to record sales of connected fitness trackers and an influx of new consumer brands in the wearable market targeting health and wellness applications.

In 2015, technology must demonstrate its worth for both health consumers and healthcare industry stakeholders.

Parks Associates has tracked the connected health space since 2006, through both industry research and consumer surveys. We welcome you to participate in a brief survey of industry executives regarding the current state and future direction of the connected health industry.

The results of the survey will be released at the second-annual Connected Health Summit: Engaging Consumers, September 9-10. Survey participants who are not able to attend the conference will receive complimentary access to the results.
