In a recent podcast, Paul Mannu of Cello Health Insight talked about wearables and apps in health care. Here are some of the quotes that stuck out most to me.

“There is a possibility here that doctors are currently in what we would refer to as a Trough of Disillusionment in terms of digital maturity.”

“Doctors were simply just overwhelmed with the sheer number of these apps and the uncertainty of the best route to take.”

“(Adotion of apps and wearables) is going to be most definitely driven by patients as the ground swell of this great patient empowerment and democratization of health increases over time.”

“It seems that industry lags very much behind in relation to acting as a catalyst for this area.”

“The bottom line is they (doctors) want to see evidence that these interventions work over time, that they are safe, and they clearly benefit the patients.”

“The doctor’s perception of a limited interest out there (among consumers) may need to be addressed.”
