A HIMSS Organization
To help people make health and wellness an effortless part of daily life.
- Health is more than healthcare. Emphasis on wellness has shifted the focus from preventing and treating diseases to living healthier, richer lives.
- People should be empowered to take responsibility for their own health and wellness. Recent technology advances and market dynamics have set the stage for an overdue transformation -- creating a new approach, where people have the tools and information needed to take charge and make healthier personal choices.
- Personal connected health is about people, not devices. Technology is useful only when it is integrated effectively into people’s daily lives.
- It won’t happen tomorrow unless we all work together today. People, industry and government must embrace health as a shared objective and adjust their goals, standards and practices accordingly.
