From smartphones to cloud storage, technology has revolutionized daily life, especially in the past decade. The medical field has certainly taken its own giant steps with emerging technology in healthcare as well. But in some areas, the digital evolution has lagged, notably in introducing tools that patients could use for at-home health monitoring.
In recent years, manufacturers and designers have became fixated with designing digital tools that aim to improve overall wellness while providing patients with the most personalized care possible. These digital solutions can empower people to actively participate in their own healthcare and give providers valuable data that may improve treatments and decision-making. The emerging trend of at-home technologies, such as wearable devices and healthcare-related smartphone apps, has opened the door for greater precision medicine.
