Parks Associates Announces Speaker Lineup Featuring AARP, HP, Giftcard Partners, Uber, Alarm.Com, And More For Sixth Annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living And Wellness

DALLAS, June 19, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Parks Associates today announced the speaker lineup for the sixth annual Connected Health Summit: Independent Living and Wellness, August 27-29 at the Pendry San Diego in San Diego, California. The firm's digital health research finds that only 15% of US broadband households have used remote services to consult with a doctor or health provider, even though availability of telehealth services is on the rise. Of those who have not used telehealth services, 22% indicate they are unaware or unfamiliar with these solutions.

"The American Hospital Association notes 76% of US hospitals can connect patients and consulting practitioners through remote technologies, but consumers are often frustrated when navigating the complexity in telehealth policies," said Dina Abdelrazik, Sr. Analyst, Parks Associates. "That complexity paired with the high value consumers place on in-person visits represents a key barrier to mass adoption. We look forward to hearing from leading providers and IoT innovators at Connected Health Summit about the benefits of remote healthcare and strategies to increase consumer awareness and participation."

Early Sponsors include HP, Independa,, Rapid Response Monitoring, MDLIVE, b.well, Freeus, Trusource Labs, GreatCall, GiftCard Partners, and ital USA.
