The MedTech Industry

Emerging and converging technologies are enabling collection of novel kinds of data, aggregation of ever-larger data sets, increasingly sophisticated data analysis, and augmented intelligence. Current and emerging elements of health care powered or enhanced by these data capabilities include new insights into individual and population health; real-time, continuous, remote patient monitoring; distributed care outside of traditional settings; advanced diagnoses through wearable, implantable and ingestible technologies; outcomes-based care arrangements; more effective management of population health; autonomous and/or remote interventions; enhanced clinical decision support; product research and development; and more.

Center for Digital Health member companies are driving these transformative advances in digital health and creating tremendous value with respect to improved patient outcomes and the quality and efficiency of health care delivery.
