Title How Wearable Computing Is Shaping Digital Health
Abstract Wearable computing enables more personalized healthcare through a distributed information sharing model that puts patients and users rather than providers, insurers, and other industry stakeholders at the center. It also fosters the creation of new health knowledge and more effective prevention and treatment techniques by integrating vital-sign data, health-related behavioral data, and environmental-exposure data with clinical and genetic data. Realizing the promise of wearables and digital health, however, will require multiple parallel technological advances.
