Forrester’s Definition of Healthcare Unbound
Consumer and healthcare technologies are driving opportunities to serve patients in new ways and in new settings. Forrester Research coined the term “Healthcare Unbound” to encompass the trends toward technology-aided self-care, mobile care and home care, defining it as “technology in, on, and around the body that frees care from formal institutions.” This rapidly evolving technology field includes sensor technology, wearable computing, home-based health monitoring solutions, and wellness and lifestyle support solutions.

About the ConferenceThe program has approximately 70 speakers. Sessions will include in-depth coverage of technology-enabled chronic care management and wellness promotion; the role of Healthcare Unbound technologies in facilitating accountable care and patient centered medical homes; legal/regulatory and reimbursement issues; payer, employer and financier perspectives; and much more.  The Conference features an Aging Services educational track that is co-sponsored by LeadingAge (formerly AAHSA) and the LeadingAge Center for Aging Services Technologies (CAST); the program also features sessions on innovative applications of mhealth, ehealth, gaming, and social media.
