Wearables Are For Consumers, Not Doctors

March 30, 2021

  • Presented by Julie Ask,
  • Alessia Stewart,
  • Paul-Julien Giraud


We interviewed physicians, patients, consumer and medical device manufacturers, and service providers to understand the role of consumer devices and data in healthcare. We found that the role of consumer data in healthcare is limited. Consumer wearables help consumers be healthier — or should. Too many wearables fail consumers. Join us as we discuss our findings for today’s remote device landscape in the US healthcare system.

Key takeaways:

  • Wearables help consumers be healthier but don't help doctors treat patients.
  • Consumers need smartphones and connectivity to support their healthcare.
  • Devices have the potential to increase health outcomes but face systemic hurdles.
