There's a new group in town - the boomers - defined as people born between 1946 and 1966. This is a huge demographic, economic and social shift. The world has never seen anything like it. And this group is living longer and more health conscious than ever before.
Boomers are taking health more seriously, whether it’s losing a few pounds, training for that first marathon, or just being more active. In turn, there’s been a lot of activity in the health space, as we've seen a number of apps and start-ups launch in the quest to help us make healthier choices, get in shape and conquer the world.
How many times have you felt a twinge in eyelid, a rash you just noticed, or a bump you’re afraid is a lump, and turned to one of the many online sites like Webmd.
The health space is always in a state of transformation, but its evolution has accelerated of late, and technology is playing an increasingly vital role in this development. Improvements in sensor technology (and a reduction in the cost of production) have led to a boom in the popularity of health monitoring and tracking devices, which itself is becoming a crowded market.
Starting a health and compliance business is a good move in this day and age. However, with increased government involvement in health insurance and delivery (via Affordable Healthcare Act), mobile technology, next-gen networks, Big Data and analytics are all having a disruptive effect on the industry. Keeping up with all the procedures, legal updates and what’s going on in the Care Industry can make staying in business too hard.

With healthcare at the forefront of the news, it makes sense that as individuals looking for health apps, wearable activity trackers, or start-up compliance companies it can be overwhelming to cut through the noise and keep tabs on all the options and figure out which apps and start-ups are right for you.
One thing is for sure, whether you are in the business of taking care of yourself or providing healthcare to others, the business of health has never been such a popular venue.
