Increasingly, the connected nature of humans is driving the Internet of life (IoL). The IoL is driving wellness, integrate life and living (WILL). The key driver for the quantifiable self is wearables, which are poised to disrupt every facet of the healthcare system. However, tracking personal health data in real-time opens up privacy and security vulnerabilities that needs to be effectively managed.


- Internet of Life (IoL) drives prominence of wellness, integrated life, and living (WILL).
- Wearables are expected to be central to outcome-based healthcare services, for the aged as well young populations.
- Big Data from wearables would require artificial intelligence (AI) and analytics to provide prescriptive insights.
- The paradigm shift from acute care to home care is expected to drive the demand for wearables in countries with a high aging population.
- Cyber security is the cornerstone for the wearable-driven healthcare revolution of the future.
