Following the thought-provoking discussion this week at the 2015 IHC FORUM West in Las Vegas, hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz will be live in the studio for this week's edition of HealthCare Consumerism Radio.
For the first half of the program, the hosts will share some of the highlights and key takeaways from this week's conference. Then, at 11:30 a.m. (ET), the hosts will welcome Dr. Rajiv Kumar, founder and CEO of ShapeUp, to the program. While wearable devices are enjoying immense consumer popularity, they’re only one piece of a holistic, successful and engaging employee wellbeing program. In this segment, Dr. Kumar and the hosts will share the most successful ways to integrate wearables into employee wellbeing and discuss key considerations for robust, personalized programs.
New numbers Pinterest released recently point that traffic has shifted to mobile in a big way. According to Pinterest 4/5 of Pinterest's traffic now comes from Mobile, and 2/3 of the content people pin is from a business website. Please join host Melissa Birnie on Jan 30th @3 P.M with Karen Horrigan, a Social Media Strategiest from Kareismatic, when they discuss the importance and the growth of mobile device in social media, specifically Pinterest, and how business can capitalize on that growth.
Following a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, HealthCare Consumerism Radio is back on the air this morning as hosts Doug Field and Andrew Dietz discuss wearable devices, private exchanges and more.
The first guest on this week's show is Stan Hill, an associate at Polsinelli Atlanta. Wearable technology in the workplace has evolved far beyond 20th century relics like wireless headsets and walkie-talkies. Employers now can track and analyze proprietary measures of worker productivity and results-driven metrics through devices worn on the wrist or elsewhere on the body. Leveraging robust streams of real-time data can implicate various employment laws and associated legal responsibilities to employees. With big data comes big responsibilities and, for the unwary employer, a minefield of employment laws. In this interview, Stan and the hosts will discuss how wearable technology can both foster and challenge employment law compliance.
The second guest on the show is Michael Trilli, a senior analyst with Aite Group. As the author of the recent report, U.S. Private Exchanges: Ready for Liftoff, Michael is one of the leading researchers covering the private exchange market today. In this interview, he will join the hosts for an in-depth discussion that will sort through competitive and go-to-market trends impacting Aite Group’s forecast of total private exchange enrollments; examine market factors fostering or inhibiting enrollment growth and underscores the impact of the impending “Cadillac” tax; outline competitive trends and how those trends are shaping the new employer sweet spot; and despite being in the early stages of its product life-cycle, analyze where innovation opportunities exist in exchange technology.

Wireless and data analytics will be top-of-mind this year for government agencies, including the Department of Defense (DoD), according to Jim Smid, Chief Technology Officer for Iron Bow Technologies. Smid recently spoke with TechSource and shared his thoughts for 2016, which are that government agencies should take a holistic approach to their networks to optimize wireless and that they “have the data, but need to take advantage of it.”
For the past few years, mobility has ramped up as agencies have focused on getting new mobile applications and devices into the hands of mobile workers. Smid says those efforts will explode in 2016 and agencies will be focusing on the wireless infrastructure to support mobility.
As more devices are connected to networks, and more agencies are collecting massive amounts of data from them, Smid sees data analytics becoming more important. The focus in 2016 should be on correlating, normalizing and analyzing that data to get real-time information back to users.
Smid shared examples of how wireless and data analytics, along with the Internet of Things (IoT), will affect agencies this year. Listen to the podcast here.
