4 Things Cutting Edge Health Tech Can Teach You About Business  

Smarter technology means smarter healthcare, but it also poses lessons for business leaders. Wearables like FitBit remind us of the value of gamification. Meditation tools such as Headspace teach us to slow down after a long day.

In much the same way, marketing attribution software now lets leaders understand customer behavior beyond single website actions.

No matter the tech, look at the data to gain invaluable insights into your customers.
