According to CEA's 2014 5 Technology Trends to Watch, as the aging Baby Boomer population requires more health care and support, devices that can monitor their health and safety are garnering attention and growing capital investment.

In 2014, the Digital Health Summit will focus heavily on consumers' growing demand for high-tech health services as they play an increasingly more participatory role in their own health. Notable Digital Health Summit exhibitors include: ANT+, InteraXon, Masimo, Omron Healthcare, Qardio Inc. and UnitedHealthcare. The TechZone will be located in the South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention and World Trade Center (LVCC).
