Physicians want patient's to monitor themselves at home for more than a dozen conditions says PwC, from weight to heart conditions. Expect more conditions as technology and telecommunications improve and medical devices are able to communicate with clinical information systems from the "medical home".
To reduce hospital admissions and adverse events, delay the onset of chronic illness and achieve maximum medical improvement, the patient and his or her family must be engaged in the healthcare delivery and insurance systems.
PERSEID Software is pleased to announce that Version 5.1 of the Life Sciences Universe™ enterprise software product implements all the mobile health requirements outlined by PricewaterhouseCoopers.
In a national survey of physician requirements for mobile healthcare1 PwC outlines twelve requirements for mobile healthcare and that 88% of physicians surveyed want patients to track or monitor health at home.
