Challenging the status quo in medicine and education, healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente said it plans to establish a medical school in Southern California.

Denise Silber's insight:

It's a different ballgame when there is no fee for service and the institution uses digital health tools to improve care, so Kaiser Permanente is creating its own medschool. Of course, many think that an HMO sacrifices quality to cost. Yet, the clinical results at Kaiser are good. And I haven't seen studies showing there is more error at Kaiser than elsewhere...

Why 2016 Will Be The Year Of Mass Wearables Adoption - maybe #doctors20

Why 2016 Will Be The Year Of Mass Wearables Adoption - maybe #doctors20 | Doctors 2.0 & You | Scoop.it
In the last 12 months, wearables have been a constant topic of conversation. The reaction has been mixed with some early adopters smugly telling anyone who listens that they were right and others—even the biggest fanboys—hedging their bets. According to Forrester Research, one in five U.S. adults either owns or has used a wearable and the market is poised to be one of the big tech earners of 2016.In 2014, only 10% of American adults admitted to having a wearable device. The Apple Watch was still a in production (announced in September 2014) and Fitbit was the poster child for a new wearable generation, but wearables were being hyped as the device that would break out in a big way in 2015.

Denise Silber's insight:
Wearables will continue to grow...They will continue to be left behind as well for all the reasons we know...although the net result will be up. Let's watch and see.

RuleIS's curator insight, December 18, 2015 10:32 AM

This kind of article should be stored and reviewed in 2021.

Reading these lines, It seems that customer engagement is evident. After the fist wave of adoption, the key driver will be : what's my personal benefit compared to the drawbacks of wearing this wearable all day (and even night) long.

It will be the right moment to note that virtual data benefits does not fit the physical convenience drawbacks.

And then we will talk some more about customer engagement !
