Life Science Washington and Product Creation Studio Present: 

DeviceConnect Series


Bringing Healthcare into the Home

The global smart home healthcare market is exploding as more medical devices are designed for use wherever the patient is, including at home. A report by Research and Markets predicts sales of these devices to reach $30 billion by 2023, up from $4.5 billion in 2017. In many ways, the medtech industry is playing catch-up with consumer technology. The stakes are high, and getting the user experience right is critical.
