Automated Hovering in Health Care | Heart and Vascular Health | Scoop.it

Healthcare is moving toward oversight & intervention in the lives of patients beyond our brief interactions in the office & hospital.  5000 hours refers to time people are awake in a year (assumes 10 hours sleep/night)

New strategies for doctors & patients:

- Rewarding patients for pill taking like a game or lottery

-Employers focus on wellness

-Home based biometrics and telehealth

-mentorship from another patient

 

Challenges going forward are how to:

1. automate hovering to reduce its cost

2.  keep patients interested and motivated

3.  prove the worth of hovering from a health economics standpoint
