Digitization and connectivity in the healthcare industry bring fundamental changes to care practices for these conditions.

Using data from the company's digital health research, the infographic provides information about connected device usage and adoption, revenue projections, and the current state of the market:

Key topics will include wearable devices, accountable care organizations, independent living and aging-in-place, and the emergence and impact of the "quantified self" movement on modern healthcare.
