Online Patient Voices > Wearable Data

Wearables have promised a lot for healthcare and so far they have not delivered. Meanwhile a greater wealth of information is being ignored-online patient voices. Patients are online sharing their experiences & needs, and healthcare hasn’t figured out how to effectively mine this data. Tapping into online patient voices through text analytics & machine learning techniques can provide insights that help healthcare better understand the patient journey & finally achieve patient centricity.
