Canairy: Health Tech in the Background

Canairy: Health in Tech in the Background: Less user input and more silent monitoring will define the future of medical technology.


A personalized, data-driven health model will have an impact on users--from detection to treatment. What’s important, is that the beneficial insights are developed silently in the background, without explicit interaction, logging, or data entry from users. These advances can dramatically improve the screening, morbidity and mortality for chronic illnesses such as lung cancer, heart disease, and neurodegenerative disease. However, does the utility of smart health services outweigh losing aspects of our privacy at home? How much of our health data should we allow companies to collect, and what kinds of data?
