As healthcare spending around the world increases, innovative methods of delivering cost-effective healthcare must be developed. Continuous patient monitoring can be one such method to drive the industry towards value-based care, decentralized care, and patient-centric approach.
Wearables for healthcare have emerged as an enduring market out of the boom of the consumer wearables market. Just this past year, Apple received FDA clearance for and launched the world's first built-in ECG on a consumer device. Whether in the form of smartwatches, eyeglasses, hearing aids, or even clothing, wearables for wellness and healthcare are here to stay. With the rise of this market comes disruption to the relationship between patients, healthcare providers, insurers, and the pharmaceutical industry.
The market for diagnostic tests and the monitoring of diseases is expanding due to changes in the global population. Increasing population size, density, elderly population is leading the market to seek diagnostic solutions which are faster, cheaper, and more accessible.
Innovations in sensors and connectivity are crucial to driving the uptake of medtech devices. As digital health and mhealth develops, devices will be moving to the point-of-care and change the way that physicians diagnose and monitor diseases.
On the evening of Wednesday September 25, 2019, attendees of Healthcare Sensor Innovations are cordially invited to a Gala Dinner. The dinner includes a 3 course meal with wine and coffee, and will be held in the historic Great Hall of Clare College. This is an unique opportunity to experience Cambridge life and we look forward to seeing you there!
