Whether you actually attended the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Shows (CES) or simply heard about it, many new devices and trends were to be found. This year, mobile and cloud-based healthcare technologies were some of the most popular industry segments represented. From the nation’s largest health insurance companies exhibiting to start-ups bringing their latest gadgets out of stealth mode, health technologies were unquestionably among the hottest and trendiest tech showcased at the event.
A quick trip around the convention center would have encountered some of these great medical innovations (to name but a few): a fork that records your every bite, smartphone apps that track your entire family’s health, watches that show the time and your heart rate, headphones that tune in to your workout, remote access to physicians through private telemedicine booths, and the ability to store all your personal medical records in the cloud for easy access and analysis by your doctor.
While exhibiting and discovering what this year’s CES had to offer, people from the healthcare industry also had the opportunity to discuss innovations in mobile health, medical devices and the cloud at the Digital Health Summit. “With a record number of medical devices and apps being showcased at CES, it’s clear that the Digital Health Summit is harnessing the momentum of this exciting movement,” said David Van Sickle, CEO of Asthmapolis (makers of a smartphone app for tracking asthma symptoms).
2013 has started on the right foot for the healthcare IT industry. Personal medical devices are no longer just recording steps taken or calories burned. These products are getting smarter, smaller, and are greatly increasing our abilities to monitor our health, prevent disease and increase our overall personal wellness.
