Rising health care costs continue to impinge on the economy and quality of life world-wide. Hospital-based care costs have led to early discharge following surgery, childbirth, and trauma with the attendant risks of re-admission. Recent changes in health care administration laws mandate hospital liability for these re-admissions instead of primary payors.
Care for aging baby-boomers is now becoming a significant burden on society, with a small fraction of this population segment carrying long term care insurance. Significantly, there is great resistance to institutional care, with the majority of senior citizens preferring to live at home as long as possible.
Remote monitoring of health status and assurance of compliance of care prescriptions is now a real possibility, with dramatic reductions in the attendant costs.
The talk will present remote market data and a proposed solution to effect many of these cost saving based on a wearable health monitor.
