Wearable Devices – Key Enablers for Remote Patient Monitoring

Digital health technologies are changing the way the healthcare is delivered. Advancements in digital health technologies are enabling the shift in patient care to de-centralized care settings with real-time monitoring, where in-person consulting is preferred only as a second line in the treatment.
