Mobile technology is redefining healthcare and wellness programs. A preventive health model depends upon employees and patients taking a proactive interest in managing their health. The more connected health solutions make use of mobile technology (e.g., smart phones, tablets, wearable devices) patients and employees have already adopted, the more successful this transition will be. Employers are focused on addressing healthcare-costs and are upping the ante in health and wellness by changing the focus of employee health and wellness from acute care to prevention.
