SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Reenita Das, Partner and Transformational Health Senior Vice President at Frost & Sullivan, will present on December 9th at MedTech Impact® 2016 Expo and Conference in Las Vegas, NV, hosted by The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, the role of wearables in the future shift from a treatment-focused, fee for service (FFS)-driven healthcare system to one of value and prevention.
Das will focus on the implementation of the Internet Of Medical Things (IoMT) and its potential to reshape the industry by creating a connected ecosystem based on sensors and devices and centered around the individual. She will discuss how thanks to the evolution of technology, wearables are moving beyond fitness and into the world of patient-generated-healthcare-data (PGHD) to transform the treatment of conditions from epilepsy to diabetes.
"Medicine was a clinical science supported by data. Today medicine is becoming a data science supported by clinicians," explains Das. While the push for value-based healthcare continues, wearables will become a useful tool to collect the data needed to keep patients out of the hospital. From contact lenses to smart tattoos, she will share with the audience what is coming on the market and how to use these devices to impact patient long term care.
