5 Trends to Watch in Digital Health for People Over 50

Medical companies shouldn’t overlook older people when they design wearables or apps, according to new findings from AARP, the advocacy group for seniors.

AARP’s revenue forecast for digital health care for the over-50 market is $34 Billion between 2015 and  2020.
