How healthcare clients are utilising wearables to track patient health information
By Daniel Piekarz
Daniel Piekarz, VP of Business Development, Life Sciences at DatArt, authors an article on how wearable devices and sensors are transforming the healthcare industry.
"We are still in the early stages of how healthcare is managed and wearables combined with mHealth applications are at the center of it. Fitness tracker successes have influenced the direction most healthcare wearables are going. Yet, this is not the good thing as many of the FDA-approved wearable devices are just glorified fitness trackers that measure activities and vitals more accurately. While this can be helpful in certain situations where 24×7 monitoring is needed, these devices are just scratching the surface of what can be done with wearables."
