Parks: 40 percent US broadband households want smartphone-based medical alerts

More than 40 percent of US broadband households are interested in receiving medical alerts via a smartphone or another connected platform, according to a report from Parks Associates.

The report, called Smart Home Platforms for Health, assesses the potential for smart home platforms to support connected health offerings.

“About 10 percent of US broadband households have some type of smart home product, service, or both, and by 2019 the number of U.S. homes with a smart home controller will exceed 26 million,” Parks Associates Director for Mobile and Health Products Research Harry Wang said in a statement. “…The smart home could enable new value propositions in home-based health and wellness solutions and independent living products and services.”
