Earlier this year I had the pleasure of attending the 2017 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. Over 175,000 attendees and nearly 4,000 exhibitors gathered to showcase and view the newest innovations in consumer technology, and once again digital health technologies were an area of real innovation!
It was a real thrill to have had the opportunity to see firsthand how these products are paving a new path in healthcare. Lifestyle & fitness tracking devices are allowing consumers to take charge of their health and make more educated lifestyle decisions in real time; and, they are securing their spot in clinical use as well. These new products and the abundance of data they are collecting will help providers make faster, more informed decisions and diagnosis in their patients’ care.
I spoke with several companies at CES with products – like smart sleep glasses and noise canceling earbuds – that hope to make a real impact in medical care today and I have made these interviews available on our website for you to watch. Please feel free to share with others who may find the information as interesting as I did!
