I keep wondering and daydreaming at how we might be able to integrate devices into our lives – specifically as they relate to our healthcare. With fitness monitors now connecting to our smartphones and hearing aids connecting to our smartphones, will the phone become a hub for similar devices in the future? And will they all be able to communicate with one another. Apple is reportedly working on a fitness monitor that will allow heart rate, glucose and vital sign monitoring through the phone. The potential for these new technologies is amazing and we are truly seeing the emergence of unprecedented advances in technology. Another question worth asking is just what impact this will have, if any, on healthcare.
