CONNECTED HEALTH CONFERENCE • Boston, MA • October 25-27, 2017
This recent post by CNBC declares “Digital health is dead, says this health-tech investor.” It points out that “since 2014, about $16 billion in VC funding has gone into over 800 digital health companies; conferences, blogs and incubators have quickly sprouted; entrepreneurs and investors need to take a step back to see how this will play out over the next decade.” The author wants us to avoid the hype and be in healthcare for the long haul.
“From a social and economic perspective, it will be some of the most important work any of us can do over the next 25 years. We need you with us. No matter what hashtag we use.”
To get beyond the hype and the hashtags, personal connected health is making a real impact. Not only are we seeing results in the clinical setting through remote patient monitoring and virtual coaching, but connected health is becoming an economic engine with real promise.
