Don’t have time to look through a 355-page presentation deck full of detailed charts and graphs? Don’t worry - this POV summarizes the five key tech-healthcare takeaways from the 2017 report and highlight additional trends across the tech industry.

Venture capitalist and digital guru Mary Meeker, of Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, presented her highly anticipated annual Internet Trends Report - which TechCrunch has called the "state of the union for the technology industry" - at the 2017 Code Conference on May 31. The annual report culls research and insights on all things innovative; from global Internet and smart phone use to social, video and voice search.

Meeker is known for her insights on tech trends, and last year, her 213-page report covered everything digital. This year, the report is a whopping 355 pages; partially because, for the first time, it includes a new, 30-page section on the merging worlds of tech and healthcare. As TechCrunch put it,

This was the first year Meeker included healthcare in her report and it shows just how much of a role tech is going to play in improving our lives going forward.
