Total U.S. health care expenditures were estimated to be $2.8 trillion in 2012, and is expected to grow steadily unless significant reforms take place.   Connected health, or remote care delivery, is viewed as a critical component to effect change in our healthcare system, lowering costs for providers, payers, and patients, and improving overall care. Yet there are still many barriers to adoption and success including patient engagement, cumbersome visualization, integrity of shared data, and access to and knowledge of technology. 

On May 7th, MassTLC convened some of the best connected health technologists in the region. The common thread among the panelists was to create an interface for collecting data from the patient and for the patient, helping clinicians provide them with optimal care.

 

For panel member Anne Pelz, PHT’s eDiaries have clinically proven results showing that patients’ results have improved greatly through monitoring their drug interactions on a mobile device. And as technologies improve and people become more savvy, there has been a significant increase in adoption. Check out her presentation below for actual study results.
