Recently Cedars-Sinai Medical center published a paper on the impact that wearables have on clinical evidence.

They took 27 studies and found wearables had no significant impact on a number of metrics.

“The study adds to a growing body of research indicating that clinical evidence has struggled to keep pace with the hype surrounding wearables.”  as stated in the article on FierceHealthcare website.

In the digital health startup accelerator I am working as a mentor a lot of new companies base their model on the use of sensors and wearables. It will be interesting to see if and how this impact also exist here in the Netherlands.

‘Wearables and remote monitoring devices do not improve clinical outcomes, but researchers say more data could change that assessment.’
