The session titled – ‘Consumer Brands Take Charge of mHealth’ will take place in San Diego on October 14.

The session will give delegates insight into the role that tech giants like Samsung, Google and Apple can play as they enter the health and wellness market and their impact on preventative care and disease management. Cambridge Consultants believes that as healthcare delivery models change, non-regulated devices can be effectively incorporated into care plans to not only prevent onset of disease but also provide more data for managing lifestyle diseases.

Cambridge Consultants will take the stage with Samsung Research Institute and Jawbone to further discuss how to succeed in this growing market that has seen big investment in recent months, including dealing with important aspects such as device reliability, data security, user experience, etc. The session titled "Consumer Brands Take Charge of mHealth" will take place in San Diego on October 14.

Consumer Brands Take Charge

With reports suggesting that $2.2B has already been invested in digital health start-ups in the first half of 2014, it’s crucial for the impact of these investments to be outlined.

  • Discuss the role tech giants, e.g. Apple and Samsung, will play such as focusing on wellness vs. certified mainstream healthcare to predict how consumer adoption will be effected
  • Capitalize on the increase in market acceptance and data reliability created by successful services, e.g. glucose and fitness monitoring, to develop the next wave of successes
  • Wearable explosion: How will smart watches, sensor lead jewellery and clothing change behaviours to create "healthcare customers" and prevent disease from the onset?

Moderator: Kyle Samani, CEO/Co-Founder, Pristine
Vaishali Kamat, Associate Director – Head of Connected Health, Cambridge Consultants
Andrew Rosenthal, Group Manager – Wellness and Platform, Jawbone
Ogan Gurel, MD, Director, Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology
