One response to “Abandoning Wearables”

  1. Ireiny

    Overload of data won’t help it will only be a fad but data with actionable health plan is the key . As much as I like wearables but they are not for everybody they are for the healthy young generation that are healthcare aware for the most part and today they don’t tax the healthcare system because they are healthy . The issue lies in other patient sectors who could be young but not healthy , who could be elderly but not tech savvy , who could be underprivileged and in an underserved areas due to poverty levels , who could be underserved minorities these are the people that beed the care and help for better health outcomes hence cutting healthcare costs . Wearables won’t solve their issues unless they are covered by insurance companies and become like the blood sugar devices today and or having educations and health capture kiosks as well as telemedicine everywhere in these geographical demographically locations . These devices standing there , for some reason you see patients walking in to check their vitals and check in . They are big and easy enough yet slick in appeal that patients can easily use and read and not get intimidated with the technology . But wearables alone are not magical wands . Wearables are for a certain segment of patients and the rest should be handled by telemedicine kiosks , health capture kiosks in grocery stores , movie theaters , retail medical clinics, health clubs, schools, universities, retail medical clinics , health centers , rural health centers , federally qualified health centers , employer clinics and corporate wellness.
