It is no exaggeration to say that the adoption of mobile devices, wearable devices, and medical information networks is accelerating their spread. The technologies and business concepts possessed by the three pioneers in medical ICT and digital medicine were discussed with the latest case studies, especially in terms of the linkage between telemedicine systems and electronic devices.

Comarch gave us an overview of the company's telemedicine solutions and its advanced initiatives in Europe and other parts of the world. The company is building telecare solutions by linking telemedicine terminals with medical equipment, data collection devices, and dedicated applications, and is aiming for a wide range of deployment, mainly in Europe. Sharp gave an overview of the company's medical-related business, including hearing aids. The company is developing hearing aids that can be customized for each individual. The products are designed to lower the hurdles for existing users, such as price and the hassle of fitting, by linking to smartphones and mobile applications.
