As wearables collect more and more data, this will mean more and newer needs around analytics. Companies like Canadian startup, Vivametrica, are working to bridge the gap between the data that wearables provide, and clinical applications.
Security And Beyond
With the increased use of this data comes new concerns around security. According to Vivametrica’s CEO, Dr. Richard Hu, technology like Vivametrica’s will “distribute that information — with appropriate security and privacy safeguards — to work as part of further data analyses in an interactive process.”
That means solutions providers will find opportunities in standardizing data, calibrating data, and securing it through all points of the communications process.
