Smart use of remote monitoring technologies, along with a strong analytics back end, can substantially reduce the burgeoning burden of the non communicable diseases. Today’s run of the mill telemedicine has unfortunately failed at yielding strong benefits, as it has neither reduced the global burden of disease, nor sufficiently reduced the need for doctors at the point of care.
The paper will start with discussing a comprehensive approach and platform tool kit for long term care, which will focus on health outcomes by utilising doctor’s expertise, established clinical protocols, and technology. The technology toolkit will consist of wearables and point of care diagnostic devices, mobile smartphones as the data gateway, and a cloud based data store and analytics engine. The “smart” software will consist of a comprehensive health management plan, regular monitoring with reminders, and health alerts based on data from various sources, and correlation between interventions and health outcomes. The analytics engine will provide feedback and recommendations to both patients and doctors. The model also allows paramedics to take quick action, thus reducing need to escalate to doctors, allowing the solution to scale easily.
The paper will include case studies about how this type of a platform is being applied for remote management of patients with chronic conditions in USA and India, as well as rural population health management in Bangladesh.
