Tools for the Connected Medical Home at Partners HealthCare
September 24, 2014, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Joseph Kvedar, MD, Founder and Director, Center for Connected Health, Partners HealthCare. The Connected Medical Home can include mobile devices and apps, wearables, sensors and remote monitoring technologies. Dr. Kvedar describes how remote patient monitoring can help individuals better manage chronic disease, improve clinical outcomes and quality of care; as well as potential cost savings and better allocation of resources. Mobile technology can improve patient engagement by capturing personal health data, providing in-the-moment messaging and taking advantage of the addictive nature of ‘always-on’ mobile devices. Connected health can also be important tools for discharge planning and patient transitions. Join us as he presents programs and key findings to support the applications of technology for the Connected Medical Home.
