Chronic Disease Management • Technology • Strategy • Issues and Trends

Posted Nov 18 2008 12:13am

Chronic Disease Management • Technology • Strategy • Issues and Trends: "Since I founded Better Health Tecnologies in 1997, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to work with companies that look at one or both sides of the same coin:

* Health care cost trends pushing care away from the hospital and doctors offices and toward people’s homes, communities and workplaces, and
* Technology trends enabling and pulling care toward environments preferred by patients — their homes, communities and workplaces.

I’ve worked with a wide range of companies, both big and small. BHT health care clients have included health plans, pharma, medical device, DM service organizations, IT, e-Health, remote monitoring, and others. Most recently clients have included several multinational consumer technology companies — companies not traditionally involved in health care, but that have a vision of creating a hybrid of consumer and health care technologies to deliver health and care anywhere.

I’ve held on to my vision of local care providers taking on a greater role in the deliver of chronic care management services. Now, more than a decade after reading “The Promise of Disease Management”, that vision is becoming much closer to being a reality."

The best place to manage these diseases is the home - not the hospital; and the best person to manage them is the patient - not the doctor !
