"The newest developments in digital healthcare are the most dramatic and far-reaching yet," says Christopher Lisanti, managing partner at The Exequor Group. The pharmaceutical consulting firm advises its life sciences clients on the most effective ways of analyzing and using the enormous number of digital innovations just coming on to the market and transforming the face of healthcare. "Digital healthcare impacts every component of the healthcare ­system," Lisanti says. Patients, caregivers, hospital systems, medical practices and insurance companies must adapt to a range of digital innovations from wearables to sophisticated monitoring systems.

These and other new products were showcased at this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. But as Lisanti notes, "The most significant trend was the next-generation devices that allow patients to be much more involved in overcoming disease and maintaining wellness."
