How Do We Know If We Are Spending Too Much on Healthcare?

How Do We Know If We Are Spending Too Much on Healthcare? | Health PR | Scoop.it
How Do We Know If We Are Spending Too Much on Healthcare? Since healthcare is a huge and complex beast, perhaps the best place to start is primary care.
Raquel Da Cruz Leal's insight:

We spend a lot of money on health care in the U.S., but we spend a lot of money on other amenities as well, so how do we know if we are spending too much money on health care? The phrase too much implies a frame of reference and some sort of valuation; too much for too little value, or too much compared to others, or both.

How Virtual Health Assistants Can Reshape Healthcare - Forbes

How Virtual Health Assistants Can Reshape Healthcare - Forbes | Health PR | Scoop.it

Empower the Patient

Healthcare quality organizations, like the National Committee for Quality Assurance suggest that millions of people in the United States do not receive the basic recommendations for preventive health services such as immunizations, pap smears, mammograms, colorectal cancer screenings and the like.

Raquel Da Cruz Leal's insight:

Patients need guideline-driven answers, but they also need someone, or in this case, some thing, to help them stay on track. Patient-centered virtual health assistants, designed to respond to voice or text questions through mobile devices, are our best option to give patients 24/7 access to current information, specific to their age, social setting, likes and dislikes, tastes, financial ability, literacy and culture.

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution

10 sensor innovations driving the digital health revolution | Health PR | Scoop.it

This year IBM dedicated its Five in Five series (an annual list of five technologies that are likely to advance dramatically) solely to sensors.

 

Digital sensors of the touch, sight,hearing, taste and smell kind along with their potential are all profiled by IBM Sensor technology is going through a renaissance as companies develop smart and innovative new ways to track data using them.

 

Sensor innovation is in-part driving the Digital Health Revolution as digital health companies find ingenius ways to integrate them in to apps, devices and other peripherals. The smartphone will play an increasing important role in all of this as they go from having six built-in sensors currently to having sixteen in the next five years.

 

If these predictions are correct then the next five years will be half-a-decade of sensor proliferation meaning the Digital Health Ecosystem will grow exponentially. In the meantime though there are already a plethora of digital health sensors in use or in the pipeline that are helping people improve and, in some instances, save lives.
