With the numbers of seniors expected to rise dramatically and increasing numbers of patients experiencing chronic disease, the current focus on face-to-face clinic interaction with the provider is not a sustainable delivery model. Technology could enable new care models to help rein in costs and improve patient outcomes through personalized care and ongoing disease management at home and in the community.
GE Healthcare, Intel Corporation and Mayo Clinic are investigating a new model of health care delivery for patients at increased risk of rehospitalization that is designed to meet patients’ needs where they are, including in their homes. Mayo Clinic will conduct a yearlong research study to determine if home monitoring of patients with chronic diseases, using Intel’s remote patient monitoring technology, will reduce hospitalizations and emergency department (ED) visits.
Omar Ishrak, President and CEO Clinical Systems at GE Healthcare explains on the video how the Company is working with Mayo Clinic and Intel to gain further insight on how to deliver technologies that improve the lives of seniors and people with chronic diseases.
