Trends in Health & Tech

From wearable devices to digital records, digital health is disrupting traditional models of healthcare. Newer technologies, including AI, VR and 3-D printing, have the potential to improve the quality and timeliness of care, increase access and reduce the overall cost of healthcare in the US and around the world. Here are some recent stats that highlight this transformation:

  • In 2013, the global mHealth market was valued at $2.4 billion, and has been forecast to reach $21.5 billion by 2018 and then $536 billion by 2025
  • 52% of people surveyed in the US in 2015 find it acceptable to share health information by uploading personal health records to their doctor’s office website
  • 71% of US millennials would be interested in a doctor giving them a mobile app to help them to actively manage their well-being
  • Consumers are willing to spend $14B on certain digital health products

Join us for The Future Digital Health Summit at MWC Americas, where will have a variety of topics around the intersection of health and technology.
