Connecting 7 billion people to 80 million health care providers represents a significant challenge for our generation. Meanwhile, the drive toward affordable care requires new technology, new treatments, and individuals who engage more intimately with their care plans.
Poor patient engagement has been estimated to cost over $290 billion dollars a year. People who don’t take their prescriptions, who are unprepared for surgery because they disregard medical education, or who short change their recovery all contribute to poor outcomes. This “Engagement Gap” is a key driver of avoidable health care costs, and closing this gap is one of the single biggest opportunities we have to reduce the cost of care.
Preventice was founded on the vision that a clinically validated mHealth platform could bring together mobile, tablet, cloud, and physiological monitoring technologies to address current health care needs. Our Preventice Care Platform allows us to work with leading innovators, such as Mayo Clinic and Merck, to develop new technologies that improve outcomes in cardiac care, allergy avoidance, medication adherence, and beyond. From early screening and diagnosis through the completion of a care plan, Preventice helps health care providers achieve high-quality outcomes. – less
