Startups Demonstrate the Use of Health Tech at Retail Expo


The “Vision” pavilion at the upcoming Total Store Expo in San Diego will offer a glimpse of the ways the technology will be used to improve the retail experience for customers and employees. According to Pharmacy Times:

Vision 2028 will provide a snapshot of emerging technologies positioned to disrupt current approaches to doing business. Such technologies include augmented reality, virtual reality, 3D printing, machine learning, robotics, and computer vision/facial recognition. Attendees will engage with technology that can be implemented across key business areas such as manufacturing, supply chain and user experience.

Three of the startups participating in the Vision 2028 have a digital health focus:

AdhereTech – Smart, wireless pill bottles that collect and send all adherence data in real-time. The system automatically analyzes the information and populates the data in a secure dashboard. If doses are missed, patients receive customizable alerts and interventions via automated phone calls, text messages and more.

Neura – Artificial Intelligence and machine learning technology that enables apps and devices to deliver experiences that adapt to who their users are, and react to what they do throughout the day. The digital health focus is on disease management, medication adherence and wellness – with the ultimate goal of improving the consumer’s health at each critical moment.

WiserTogether – Consumer-focused healthcare IT solutions that advance clinical and financial outcomes, and patient satisfaction results. The Return to Health platform empowers consumers to be a true partner in the healthcare process; it circumvents immense amounts of medical data on the Internet and in the market for guidance on the most effective treatment options.

The 2017 National Association of Chain Drug Stores (NACDS) Total Store Expo, will be held at the San Diego Convention Center from August 19 – 22.
