Gaining Traction: The Markets to Watch
Friday, June 20th, 10:15am-10:35am

GrandCare Systems very own Chief Marketing Officer, Laura Mitchell, will be speaking at the 2014 Digital Health Summer Summit. This will be taking place June 18th-20th in San Francisco, CA.

With a number of growing markets in digital health, there are undoubtedly a few that seem to be picking up speed with consumers and care providers: aging and wearables. And with this comes more investor dollars and companies wanting “in.”

As one of the most valuable market segments, boomers account for nearly $230 billion in sales for consumer goods and will control 70% of the nation’s disposable income in the next twenty years. And with the value of the wearables market expected to cross $8B by 2018, consumers and companies are taking notice.
