Growing health consciousness, increasing popularity of fitness and health apps, and the requirement for portability in our globalized society are major drivers of wearable technology in healthcare. It has been witnessed that the wearable devices industry is continuously evolving and adapting to the needs of its customers with its limitless application. This includes personalized data tracking, chronic disease management, health education and engagement, remote monitoring and telemedicine, early detection and intervention, and many more. It offers healthcare professionals and patients a platform to share data and work together on health plans. It also helps modify the behavior via medication reminders and exercises and even promotes wearers to be more active. Wearables are revolutionizing healthcare and actively contributing to its vitality. However, it is crucial for these apps and devices' data privacy, security, and accuracy while integrating into the healthcare system.

In recent years, the utilization of wearable devices has increased significantly due to the rising trend of all generations going digital and focusing on a healthy and active lifestyle. As the number of consumers- and medical-grade wearables will continue to rise in the next years, Fitbit Inc., Garmin Ltd., Samsung, Xiaomi Inc., and others are considering using healthcare app development and different software solution to capitalize on the potential of these cutting-edge devices. Adding to this, predictive analytics methods combined with Internet of Things (IoT) technologies will assist in providing additional information about patient data. The effectiveness of wearable products will be increasingly affected by the development of artificial intelligence in healthcare. It can not only reduce cybersecurity threats but also improve measurement accuracy. Despite its profitability with these technologies, telemedicine software is not cheap, and not all healthcare providers may be able to provide digital solutions for their patients.
