Strategic Curation Of Information:  With the proliferation of fitness trackers and health apps, there is no shortage of personal health information available to caregivers today. This information overload provides substantial opportunity for developers, but it challenges caregivers to efficiently and effectively leverage the correct data in quickly diagnosing and treating underlying patient health issues. In the course of our healthcare research, time and again we’ve heard doctors request “less data, more meaningful content.”   Instead of mining through mountains of all-inclusive health data, caregivers using the platform can be alerted to only the most relevant physiological changes within patients, those which could be early signs of a significant health event to come.   Conclusions:   The success of tomorrow’s medical device developers won’t be a function of cutting-edge technology development alone. Only by leveraging user research can companies uncover the leading opportunities to deliver more meaningful healthcare outcomes, and effectively compete in today’s increasingly dynamic, IoT-influenced industry.
