Parks Associates: Only 13-14% of U.S. Broadband Households Show Interest in New Health Management Services




DALLAS, TX — (Marketwired) — 08/23/16 — shows that only 13-14% of U.S. broadband households express interest in several new health management services, such as remote health monitoring, personal health coaching, or wearables that collect data for healthcare providers.
