What’s new in 2018 that keeps you upbeat/optimistic about the connected health market?
Voice First just keeps getting better with wider application.

What’s the most effective strategy/approach you have seen that engages consumers for health & wellness behavioral changes?
High touch support on a continuous basis.

What do you anticipate to happen in 2018 that would have the biggest impact on the connected health market?
Not much. Efforts are still fragmented. Multiple proprietary products. It's very much like the Wild West of the computer industry in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

How is AI in health helping to improve the care experience?
It hasn't yet in any large scale or meaningful way.

How will innovations in connectivity, such as the emergence of 5G, impact the health market?
Improvements in broadband and increased speed will improve telehealth and remote solutions, making them more attractive to use. But the market effect will be incremental.
