“The pandemic has forever changed the trajectory of healthcare, consumer work environments, and the role of technology in the home,” said Elizabeth Parks, President, Parks Associates. “There is so much investment as many industries are forced to transform in response to these new market challenges, but we see opportunities to make real improvements in consumers’ lives. Our research reveals how broadband, connected devices, and technology can enhance and provide added value to consumers.”
