Study: mobile platforms to drive $3B in connected health device sales

A report from Juniper Research predicts that connected health devices will generate $3B in revenue by 2019. The report highlights such devices as blood pressure cuffs, oximeters, and sleep devices. Juniper indicates that mobile platforms from Apple and Samsung are helping to drive adoption, which could disrupt legacy disease management players.
