The patient-engaged healthcare revolution

Everyone keeps talking about the “internet of things” and one aspect of that is your own personal healthcare. Using the latest technologies it is now possible to build an app or some connected device that will allow you, an individual, to take an active participation in your own healthcare experience.
The healthcare aspect of the “internet of things” and big data, are really interesting from an athletes point of view. Now a personal trainer could have an app that talks to devices which monitors his clients health profile while working out. This information could offer any healthcare expert a detailed profile of the individual. There are many challenges ahead for these types of apps and services.
