New Connected Health Use Cases: Impact of COVID-19

by Parks Associates | Jan. 21, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic has turned the healthcare ecosystem on its head. Care providers and health systems have leaned on technology to provide much needed care to patients at home, through telehealth consultations and remote patient monitoring programs. Similarly, public health officials look to technology to help slow the spread of the virus itself, through smartphone-based contact tracing and proactive wellness monitoring, or televigilance.
