By 2020, experts predict that more than 20 billion everyday objects will be able to capture, receive, and share data via a vast, interconnected global network linked together by inexpensive sensors, GPS, and “the cloud.” Just around the corner, real-time biometric data will be automatically captured and used to learn more about the impact of lifestyle on chronic diseases and wellness, and ultimately change behavior to improve our health. Using real-world examples, observations, and recommendations from his new book, “The Internet of Healthy Things,” Dr. Kvedar describes the phenomena driving this trend and the business opportunities that arise from it.
