| ||In today's connected world, consumers send and receive content on multiple handheld and portable devices on a continuous basis. However, much of health monitoring is still done in a discrete manner, such as during a doctor's visit.|
But that is rapidly changing, as evidenced by the number of medical device, consumer electronics, and startup companies developing wearables for continuous monitoring. Continuous health monitoring provides users with a peace of mind, allows for preventative healthcare, and has been shown to improve treatment outcomes. Patients with chronic conditions see improved quality of life and reduced hospitalizations and ER visits. Attendees at Healthcare Sensor Innovations USA 2020 will hear from industry representatives on how the next wave of connected and wearable medical devices will bring increased benefits to patients, healthcare providers, insurers, and the pharmaceutical industry. IDTechEx has forecast the medical wearables market to be worth almost $20 billion by the year 2024.
