One-third of adults live with one or more chronic conditions. In the United States, 75% of healthcare expenditures are related to managed conditions. The increasing prevalence of chronic conditions is a worldwide problem.
Goals and Objectives
Encourage consumers to be more active participants in managing their own health and chronic conditions (e.g., controlling A1C levels for diabetic patients and blood pressure for hypertensive consumers).
- Remote health monitoring devices (glucometers, weight scales, and blood pressure cuffs)
- Patient data gateways to aggregate and transmit data to care management systems
- Consumer-facing mobile applications and portals
Use Case Summary
Providing consumers with medical-grade monitoring devices and clinical support via coaching and intervention when necessary will empower consumers to better manage their chronic conditions.
