Analyzing healthcare data and trends is commonplace. From financial and reimbursement metrics to population data and engagement, our team is continually seeking ways to bring clarity to decision makers in emerging companies, global organizations and financial sponsors.
Last year we embarked on an effort to look at how one demographic population – Seniors – would be served by a range of innovative technologies and programs to support their health and wellbeing. To support our assessment, we published two research reports that focused on this important area of healthcare. While seniors is still top of mind, we’re now looking at kids and healthcare…and are finding some interesting data points.
* There are 70M kids in the U.S.
* 12M are considered obese (the growing trend line here is troubling)
* 125K under age 19 have diabetes
