Empowered Patient Solutions

Mar 26, 2024

Kinsey Fabrizio, now President of the Consumer Technology Association,  highlights many digital health innovations in the women's health arena showcased in the recent CES 2024 event.  A recent CTA study found that 45% of women currently use digital health solutions, and 75% of women in the survey face challenges obtaining healthcare services. With oversight from the FDA, medical devices and wearables are becoming increasingly accurate. With the addition of AI, they are expected to play a role in improving healthcare outcomes and access.  

Kinsey explains, "CTA is a nonprofit trade association, and we represent the entire consumer technology industry. And a big part of that is digital health. We have members who are digital health companies, and we strive to help advance the industry for them. We do that through policy, research, and standards development. We're an ANSI-Accredited Standards organization, and through different events, we convene the industry together."

"We saw a lot of really exciting innovations in women's health at the CES 2024 show. Digital health is always a really big category for CES. We have hundreds of exhibitors in this category, and we do two full days of conference programming called our Digital Health Summit. And it's an opportunity for the industry to come together and talk about the exciting transformation of healthcare led by technology. But some really exciting products that we saw in the women's health space were just unique and stood out."

"That is just an example of how tech is starting to be tailored to address specific women's health issues. This isn't something I would've seen at CES 10 years ago, so it shows the evolution and advancement there. Another product that I thought was just game-changing is Cerviray, a cancer screening device by AIDOT, which utilizes a very specific technique called visual inspection with acetic acid. And it's faster, simpler, and less invasive than traditional tests like the pap smear."
