Are there some vendors that come to mind? - Thomas more than 1 month ago

Juan brings up going points as well - there's been a lot of research done on the wearables side. For example, besides the larger improvement of care, it's a matter of improving the access of care. For patients who do not have access to vehicles or transportation for PCP visits, wearables can be used as a placeholder to check vitals information (i.e., as Juan mentioned, heart beat, etc.)

In addition, there are other options, such as 'smart' pill devices which can monitor and improve medication adherence and can notify caretakers.
