This presentation reveals current consumer activities and their demands, interests, and concerns related to connected health products and services.

  • Population Health Management: Tracking Technology’s Impact—Discussion Panel

    by Alere Connect, Welltok, OptumHealth and Wellframe

    As the healthcare industry shifts to preventive care, traditional disease management companies are expanding their service scope and embracing technology to meet their clients’ interests. Population health management emphasizes the continuum of preventive care as consumers transition from one life stage to another, with solutions such as virtual care and digital coaching employed to reduce costs while improving care engagement and communication. Near the end of 2013, over 25% of U.S. consumers had used some type of online healthcare communications. This panel examines the best practices of population health management in the digital age and how technology can reshape consumers’ experience with population health management services.

  • Path to Quality of Care: Leveraging Technology for ACOs—Discussion Panel

    by Care Innovations, SSM Health Care, Meridian Health, Intermountain and Vivify Health

    As the financial model for healthcare shifts to paying for performance/value, the Accountable Care Organization (ACO) will secure a larger role as the provider type to deliver value-based care. ACOs are built on a collaborative care approach, and investment in technology will facilitate better patient-doctor communications and transform consumer care experience. Parks Associates estimates PCMH- or ACO-recognized practices will manage nearly 40 million U.S. patients by 2015, doubling the number from 2014. This panel looks at the challenges and opportunities that ACOs face in delivering patient-centered care and the best practices to proactively engage patients.

  • Independent Living: Engaging the Elderly and Caregivers—Discussion Panel

    by ADT, GreatCall, Independa, Inc., BeClose and Verizon Enterprise

    The population in the U.S. and many other developed markets is aging rapidly, with the care burden on the family increasing. Over 21 million U.S. broadband households currently either care for a family member with a chronic health condition or anticipate doing so in the near future. Technologies and care services designed to help older consumers live safely and independently in their homes, maintain a healthy lifestyle, manage chronic health conditions, and improve the overall quality of life will find a huge potential market, but current approaches have yet to crack open this market. In the U.S., the total number of independent living service subscribers will exceed 2.5 million in 2014, still a relatively low adoption compared to the much bigger addressable market. This panel discusses current challenges and highlights specific technologies, services, and strategies to better serve this market.

  • The Role of Connected Devices in Digital Health—Discussion Panel

    by Ayla Networks, iHealth, Z-Wave Alliance and Continua

    Nearly 60% of U.S. broadband households own some kind of personal health and wellness device, such as a digital weight scale or glucometer, and new designs and form factors, such as smart watches, have generated considerable consumer interest.However, the demand for these devices will be unsustainable if the technology fails to engage consumers or influence their behaviors, which would undermine their financial or healthcare incentives. This panel probes the design and use cases that drive consumer usage and how device manufacturers can leverage partnerships to bring consistent health benefits to consumers.
