3 Ways Wearable and Ingestible Medical Sensors Improve Patient Compliance

Med Tech

Grant Campany, Senior Director, Qualcomm Tricorder XPRIZE, outlines the top three ways wearable and ingestible medical sensors can improve patient compliance. According to Campany, wearables help forge a partnership between doctor and patient, helping to measure performance against goals. Another way these technological tools can help improve patient compliance is through providing feedback on performance and real-time interaction outside of the physician’s office. Lastly, these devices build a community among patients, allowing them to create a support system through which they can succeed in improving overall health via a common denominator.
