The Role of Wearable Technology in Early Detection
When a new infectious disease emerges, health care systems are faced with the challenging task of testing individuals at an increased demand without necessarily having access to the necessary supply of diagnostics. However, as the wearable device market grows and more individuals have the ability to monitor their own health metrics, what role can wearable technologies play in the early disease detection phase?
If wearable devices have the ability to provide continuous sensing capabilities while accurately capturing signals, is there a role that wearable devices play in forecasting illness? What role can wearable technology play in an outbreak response at both the individual level and global level?
Join our panel with industry experts to discuss the potential for innovation in the use of wearable technologies for early detection.
