"Wearables and other technologies are expanding health and self-care beyond the exam room and into people's daily lives -- allowing patients to take disease prevention into their own hands with oversight from care providers," said John Bojanowski, President, Honeywell Life Care Solutions. "And it is happening quickly, as more than one-fifth of the U.S. population now uses digital technology to track their health and fitness, and the wearable medical device market is expected to increase by roughly $8.3 billion over the next five years."

"In addition to a wealth of relevant industry data shared by Parks Associates with the attendees, I value the opportunity to hear firsthand about the challenges and opportunities other industry executives are seeing."

"CES brings together some of the most exciting innovations that require greater connectivity, processing, and security," said Sami Nassar, vice president of cybersecurity at NXP.
