Mark Cuban: Future of health IT lies outside hospitals

Sensors and data analytics are the future of healthcare, more so than technology in hospitals, according to billionaire tech investor Mark Cuban.

Tools consumers can use to track their healthcare will help physicians better understand the care their patients require, he recently told MedCity News. In addition, he says that healthcare outside of hospitals is growing, such as in urgent care centers and at drugstores.

He adds that 23andMe and Theranos are also going to make a big difference, making it easier for patients to take control in their own healthcare.

"Data [analytics] is taking us to new levels of healthcare, but we need to be interested in investing to accumulate that data," he said. Article
