Whether used to monitor the well-being of a pet or human, these cloud-connected health innovations range from smart medication dispensers to analytic health apps. In addition to offering functions like limitless file storage capabilities for mobile and computer users, cloud-based technology is now being used on a broader level than ever before.

These cloud-connected health innovations harness the power of technology to boost the benefits of prescribed medications or healthy foods -- while smart medication dispensers and senior-focused wearables remind users to take specific medications at a particular time of day, innovations like hand-held food scanners connect to the cloud to offer in-depth nutrition facts.

Other standouts include diagnostic healthcare networks that give medical professionals a chance to communicate and collaborate on research, prescriptions and diagnoses patterns.
