Healthcare Information technology is taking rapid strides. Mobile, Big Data and M2M (machine-to-machine) etc., is changing the face of patient care. The latest addition is wearable technology. While other industries are still playing with the idea of using wearable products like Google Glass, Smart Watches and others; the healthcare industry is embracing wearables in a big way. From chronic disease management, clinical diagnosis to routine patient care- wearable technology is being leveraged across the industry to reinvent healthcare delivery models.
As Forrester Analyst J.P. Gownder puts it “Under the Affordable Care Act, there are penalties for hospitals that have bad ‘outcomes,’ so the [wearable health monitors] are becoming very important. Home monitoring is being used to improve outcomes, and there’s much more incentive to improve.”
