Going forward, Jason Hope is always looking at new technological advances. Hope plans to continue writing and sharing information about technology to educate consumers on the value that new technology can bring to their everyday lives. One advancement that Hope has his eye on is the improvement of data collection and analytics in health trackers.

The healthcare system as a whole has the most potential to benefit from the IoT. Many advances in the IoT that provide utility and convenience to the average consumer are already on the market and are expected to become more broadly available and affordable.
