This chapter deals with current innovative approaches to future developments in POCT and addresses topics such as telemonitoring, ambient assisted living and personalized health (pHealth). Trends in and drivers of personalized health (pHealth) are described with a focus on self-monitoring and the technical basis that engenders these developments. Self-monitoring often relies on wearables: intelligent miniaturized components and/or computer systems integrated in wearable devices. Wearables generally interact wirelessly via networks; broadly speaking, their conceptualization characterizes the Internet of Things (IoT). Methods for analyzing the measurements collected are subsumed under the catchphrase Big Data Analysis.
