Healthcare Unbound Defined
Consumer and healthcare technologies are driving opportunities to serve patients in new ways and in new settings. Forrester Research coined the term "Healthcare Unbound" to encompass the trends toward technology-aided self-care, mobile care and home care, defining it as "technology in, on and around the body that frees care from formal institutions." This rapidly evolving technology field includes sensor technology, wearable computing, home-based health monitoring solutions, and wellness and lifestyle support solutions.
