Chances are you think that medical costs are going to bankrupt America, and if we assume that Medicare and Medicaid costs will rise as they have for the past 20 years (despite the brief interlude these last three years), then there is reason for alarm.
But ask yourself: how much of those costs are related to expensive diagnostic tests? How much are related to fixing major health problems after the fact, when they could have been prevented if we had only known where to look at what lifestyle changes to make?
What the bean counters are missing when they simply project ever-larger expenditures based on past experience is the enormous impact that wearable diagnostics are going to have on healthcare in general.
