mHealth: Are You Ready for Sensors in Healthcare? | mHealth: Patient Centered Care-Clinical Tools-Targeting Chronic Diseases | Scoop.it

The market for wearable sensors is increasing dramatically. Devices are being designed to help people manage chronic conditions, recover more quickly from injuries, analyze physical and environmental abnormalities that may lead to more serious health issues and detect unhealthy habits before they cause problems, according to Pathfinder Software. A new infographic from Pathfinder Software takes a look at the types of wearables available, how they are used, their wireless capability and other details on this technology. Thank you to Pathfinder Software for an educational Infographic. Also, thank you to the Healthcare Intelligence Network for having this Infographic on their site.

Dr. Nick van Terheyden, is CMIO at Nuance offers his thoughts on the hospital of the future and the top three transformations that will drive the next generation of patient-centric care.
