Broadband’s Growing Role In Connected Health Solutions

According to Parks Associates, about 80 percent of caregivers in U.S. broadband households spend more than an hour a day performing their care-giving tasks. And in recent research Parks did with AARP, indicators show that 117 million Americans will need care-giving assistance by 2020, either as care recipients or family caregivers.

The demand for connected health solutions over broadband networks seems clear, but how the market will get there seamlessly is less so.
