Consumers are gaining increasingly active roles in their healthcare services. Spending is shifting from employers to employees, and personal technologies give consumers the ability to make informed decisions about their healthcare. Nearly 60% of U.S. broadband households own some kind of personal health and wellness device, such as a digital weight scale or glucometer, and new designs and form factors, such as smart watches, have generated considerable consumer interest. This infographic created by Parks Associates illustrates the top digital health consumer activities of U.S. broadband consumers over the past 12 months.

Keynote speakers include Ascension Health, Humana, Kaiser, Optum, Qualcomm Life, and Walgreen’s. Registration is open, andpress passes are available.
