As sensors, connected devices and data analysis techniques are continually refined, the life enhancing and saving potential of wearable tech grows exponentially.
Health systems are incorporating wearables and digital health protocols into patient care plans. Consumers are buying smart watches, smart clothes, smart jewelry, and of course the latest phones and gadgets, to quantify their own health and fitness. Doctors welcome fitness data to understand the longer, fuller picture of patient health. Hospitals incorporate wearables to better monitor vitals, and send patients home with them to improve outcomes. And, of course, all are concerned with ensuring accurate, reliable, data acquisition, and its private and secure transfer.
Wearable Tech + Digital Health SF will take place on April 5, 2016. It is a conference driven by the latest digital health breakthroughs. It follows Wearable Tech + Digital Health NYC, where 250 healthcare thinkers gathered to discuss devices, data, tech driven patient care in the real world, and the next generation of health monitoring, from sweat sensors to EEG tattoos.
WTDHSF will be followed by NeuroTech SF, on April 6, 2016 – a full day event dedicated to brain monitoring, neurofeedback, BCI and stimulation – a natural and needed extension of the Wearable Tech + Digital Health conference.
