New Research Finds Consumers Ready to Take Active Role in Managing Hea

Posted by @DanHinmon, Feb 8, 2016

Thanks to @jkennedy93 (Janet Kennedy) for sharing this article with us.

New research shows that Americans are fully prepared to take a more active role in managing their over-all health and are more than willing to wear personal monitoring devices to help themselves and medical professionals improve their care.

According to a national survey of 1,000 respondents commissioned by The Society for Participatory Medicine and healthcare technology company Biotricity Inc., more than 8 out of 10 consumers (84 percent) believe that tracking their own health data with a clinically accurate monitoring device will help improve their over-all health.
