Mr. Pittock will participate in the session "Consumerization of Healthcare: Trends and Technology on Thursday, May 26 at 11:15 am. The interactive panel session will be moderated by Harry Wang, Sr. Director, Research, Health & Mobile Product Research, Parks Associates and will examine how Healthcare is taking up a large part of the IoT, driven by the demand for change in service, delivery, and quality. However, many of the most at-risk consumers are still under-informed about new wellness options in the smart home.This session addresses the shift towards a consumer-centric model and new opportunities for healthcare technology companies, service providers, and smart home players. Speakers discuss new business models using connected devices to engage consumers and strategies to target key consumer segments with IoT solutions.

“There is explosive growth in our industries, and CONNECTIONS will highlight new strategies for the connected consumer and the critical issues facing the industry, including integration, privacy and data, cloud services, and personalization features,” said Stuart Sikes, President, Parks Associates. “We appreciate Tunstall Americas participating at this year’s event.

“There has been a shift in demand over the past 15 years from the end-user to the caregiver, in terms of what we now call smart home connected health technology and services,” according to Casey Pittock, CEO of Tunstall Americas. He continues, “The caregiver is in control, making decisions for their aging family member, or in the case of professional caregivers, for their patients – and as a world leader in connected healthcare, it is incumbent on us to effectively raise awareness with these caregivers about the innovative and affordable solutions available to help people stay healthy and safe at home.”
