A list of start-ups that are changing the health care industry!

The Health Tech industry is the cutting-edge of innovation with companies constantly striving to not only beat one another at the next best technology. Many of the latest innovations are consumer-driven and most physicians are embracing the change.

Focus on Vision, helping the world to see better

Today, we decided to present a great company that we recently discovered: Focus on Vision.

 

While most of us spend a sizable chunk of our days on the PC or other technology for work and pleasure, we rarely take the time to be grateful for the gift of sight. At the end of the day, when our eyes are too tired to read, or when we get visual headaches, we resent our eyes. The decision to make a trip to the optometrist to get a stronger pair of glasses, is as simple as deciding what’s for dinner.

4 Simple, Almost-Free Ways to Promote Your Freelance Business

 

Deciding to put the security of a salaried job behind you and to become a freelancer, is a bold move. However, it could well be the best decision you have ever made. Business is constantly evolving and companies are seeing the value in hiring top freelance specialists, instead of in house employees. Doing this saves companies money, but it also creates opportunities for people like you to earn money while you live your dreams – provided you learn how to effectively promote yourself as a freelance translator.

 

When you work for a company as an in-house translator, they take care of the marketing, and you simply have to show up to work. Then again, they limit how much you can earn by only giving you as much work as they think you can handle. When you’re a freelance translator, you can take on as much work as you can fit into a day, since you already save time on the daily commute.

Connected Objects are shaping the future of the health care industry

Internet of Things devices and tools are revolutionizing the medical industry, with more and more companies and start-ups creating new interconnected objects for the healthcare industry. We have been using similar tools in our daily lives – from GPS watches for exercise to fitness trackers that record our steps and calories burned. But connected objects for the medical field are much more advanced. The objective is that these items connect to the internet to upload or download data. Gartner predicts that there will be 26 billion interconnected devices by 2020.

 

Connected objects that measure physiological factors are generally targeted at the public and made available by major retail outlets. This means that many medical professionals will not prescribe the connected devices, and users miss out on the prudent advice that practitioners have to offer.
