Connected Healthcare Takes Huge Leap Forward

  • “The data from personal health and wellness devices can be used by an individual to monitor themselves between doctor visits as well as to prompt a visit for a previously undiagnosed condition.”
  • “Potential study subjects are no longer limited by distance from a study site that requires time and cost to travel to. There is also no lost time at work or childcare considerations.”
