While a recent Scripps Institute study found that connected healthcare devices had no discernible impact on healthcare utilization, and little impact on health self-management, there are several healthcare organizations reporting costs savings and improved clinical outcomes from such programs, highlighted in a new infographic by Chilmark Research.

The infographic examines five case studies of healthcare organizations using technology and the impact the programs have had on costs and utilization.
