Parks Associates: 60% of U.S. Broadband Households Own a Personal Health and Wellness Device

ADT Health, iHealth Labs, Lowe's, Aetna, and Qualcomm Life Address Consumer Engagement for Digital Health Solutions

DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 07/17/14 -- New digital health and Internet of Things (IoT) research from Parks Associates finds nearly 60% of U.S. broadband households own some kind of personal health and wellness device, such as a digital weight scale, blood pressure meter, digital pedometer, or glucometer.

The inaugural Connected Health Summit: Engaging Consumers, hosted by Parks Associates on September 4-5 in San Diego, will examine the growing interest in new health devices and apps and the impact of health reforms, connected devices, and mobile services on service providers, manufacturers, payors, and institutions in the digital health markets. Previously released research on smart watches shows 2% of U.S. broadband households purchased a smart watch in 2013 and another 4% are very likely to purchase a smart watch in the next 12 months.

"New designs and form factors like smart watches have generated considerable consumer interest, but if these devices do not engage consumers or influence their behavior, they will not gain a foothold in the healthcare industry," said Harry Wang, Director, Health & Mobile Product Research, Parks Associates. "At the 2014 Connected Health Summit, we will examine the factors necessary for success in the digital health space. The event brings together high-level executives to network and examine the strategies and innovations that combine the tech and healthcare industries to deliver engaging consumer solutions."

Summit sponsors are ADT, Care Innovations, Lowe's, Z-Wave, Independa, Masimo, and Ayla Networks. The summit will feature the following keynote speakers:

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently. In his session at @ThingsExpo, ...
There will be new vendors providing applications, middleware, and connected devices to support the thriving IoT ecosystem. This essentially means that electronic device manufacturers will also be in the software business. Many will be new to building embedded software or robust software. This creates an increased importance on software quality, particularly within the Industrial Internet of Things where business-critical applications are becoming dependent on products controlled by software. Qua...

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to imp...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it?

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
