-- Frost & Sullivan premieres exclusive research at Digital Health Summer Summit 2014
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Interest in the digital health space is increasing with opportunities and growth resulting from healthcare changes and technology innovation. This sector is becoming, if not already, a top growth opportunity as the U.S. healthcare system modernizes to become more affordable and transparent and as acceleration increases, driven by increased integration of electronic medical records, a more connected and savvy consumer and cloud based, and software as a service delivery models. Since increased market interest has led to the rapid expansion of mobile and wearable technology, it has been of an even greater importance to identify key areas of real growth within digital health.
"Digital health is a sector with diverse opportunities and challenges alike," said Frost & Sullivan Connected Health Global Program Director Daniel Ruppar (@DanielRuppar). "We are still at a critical time where tech innovation, business models, workflow integration, solution awareness and other factors key to success are not yet aligned, and many areas are overhyped. Deep understanding of current and future markets is vital for companies seeking to enter or expand interests in this area - one central for healthcare system transformation."
Ruppar will address these issues and more during his session at Digital Health Summer Summit 2014 (summersummit.digitalhealthsummit.com), June 18-20, 2014, in San Francisco, Calif. His presentation, "The Market Report: Top Growth Opportunities in Digital Health," is on day two of the conference and will provide tangible insights on key telehealth and health IT markets, a current market view of merging consumer and provider generated data in decision making, and markets that have the greatest opportunity for growth through 2024.
"Digital health is a complex field. It is about saving lives, helping people remain in their own homes longer and be active longer," said Digital Health Summer Summit Producer Jill Gilbert. "The summit provides an ideal forum for discovering key opportunities and growth potential that will help digital health businesses succeed in furthering these goals."
