This year’s #CES2020 wasn’t as much about the shiny new things in the Internet of Things as it was about the impact for health and the Intelligence of Things. Check out the post on Medecision’s site to see what I saw, and why I feel this year at CES was a significant tipping point for consumer-, patient-, and caregiver-facing digital tech.
