Should drugstores start selling wearables?

What role can wearables play in the management of disease and how reliable are they?

Will we see the rise of “digiceutical” prescriptions, and will wearables become the go-to tool for monitoring patients remotely?

This program will help answer these questions and discuss the potential of a “digital health playbook” for pharmacy professionals.
