"Digital health technologies will grow ubiquitous as doctors and patients grow comfortable with using their everyday digital devices to manage health. As comfort levels grow, increasing sophistication will be layered on to monitor patients and share information with doctors. The convergence of wireless technologies, social media, and low-cost monitoring devices and sensors will provide consumers with new ways to take control of their own health and wellness."
But lets not forget the patient side. As Burrill noted:
"A new cost-consciousness will permeate patients and providers as new value-based approaches to healthcare take hold. Patients will look past the traditional delivery of healthcare and rely on new digital tools to comparison shop for services. Providers will place a greater emphasis on cost control within their facilities as they move toward billing for outcomes rather than services."
