The wearable device market continues to grow globally, with over 30% of individuals in North America owning a device, and over 95% owning a sensor-enabled smartphone. But what value are these devices bringing, and how will they impact health and wellness into the future? We believe that the value in wearables is all in the data. In particular, how the data is used to enable individuals and groups to better understand and manage their health, wellness and risks.
Never before have we had the ability to measure, monitor and motivate health in such a powerful way. The data to improve health is now in all of our pockets and on our wrists.
In this session, we will explore how innovative Canadian companies and researchers are turning wearable device data into actionable insights and real impacts to health, insurance and the economy. Our aim is to understand how this data can be used not only to explain what is happening in people's lives, but also to diagnose, predict and prevent disease.
