Is connected health the future of healthcare? Parks Associates digital health research shows consumers are adopting an ever-increasing number of tools and services that help them measure, track, and better understand their personal health and wellness. Nearly 30% of U.S. broadband households own a connected health device, and 12% own more than one of these devices. 

Jennifer Kent, Director, Research Quality & Product Development at Parks Associates, recently sat down with Healthcare Tech Talk to discuss the impact of connected health services and tools in today's lifestyles. 

Topics included:

  • Consumer perspectives on innovations in the healthcare industries
  • How healthcare providers can derive value and make use of data provided by connected health tools
  • The impact of digital innovations on healthcare and provider business models
