Smart Health: The Connected Hospital and Connected Patient

Connectivity is bringing transformative change to healthcare provision and services. That change extends not just to the ability to monitor machines and patients without regard to their location or presenting that data to service providers also regardless of location, but also brings the ability for network services such as data analysis, AI, automation, and virtual reality to play a role in healtchare provison. Each promises to bring efficiency, flexibility, and improved outcomes into healthcare provision. However, healthcare as a vertical market has variety of special aspects and concerns that shape the way in which connectivity can and will be adopted. As an industry, healthcare varies widely between regions, nations, and even within the same healthcare delivery organizations (HDOs). Variation can range from healthcare availability, to payment structures, to implementation and working practices, and even to the most common patient conditions. Given that health is an aspect that touches every person on the planet, the importance and value of delivering affordable healthcare is paramount.

The Emerging Role of Wearables in Corporate Wellness Programs

Global healthcare spending is at record levels, driven by the cost of an aging population and the associated long-term care for chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Employers are facing these healthcare burdens, as well. Unwell employees cost companies more through increased health insurance plan costs. On average, they also experience more absenteeism than their peers and are generally less productive. This challenge is pushing employers, and the healthcare industry as a whole, to develop new products and solutions that can improve the health of individuals worldwide.

Over the past several years, employers have begun integrating wearable wireless devices into their wellness programs. These devices brought a new level of activity management and analysis to corporate wellness programs. They also increased employee participation rates and drove preventative programs for those covered by these programs.

This webinar will include an examination of the key drivers pushing wearable devices into corporate wellness programs, as well as what will drive success and competition in this market over the next five years. It will also include an overview of the major market players, including device manufacturers, insurance companies, and wellness providers, as well as how their efforts will converge to drive employee adoption and engagement into these programs. Additionally, the webinar will include a discussion on what these trends reveal about the evolution of the wearable device market.
