Healthcare is gold rush for mobile technology
If healthcare is the new gold rush, then it's no surprise Silicon Valley's high-tech companies, entrepreneurs and recent MBAs hope to strike it rich on the heels of U.S. healthcare reform. A growing number of today's technological gold-seekers want to help patients manage chronic disease. Specifically, they are interested in home monitoring devices, wireless trackers that can send thousands of electrocardiogram (EKG) tracings, blood sugar levels or other bodily statistics directly to health care professionals. While home monitoring devices may have a glittering future, some of today's tech companies are chasing fool's gold.
