Accountable Care – Vision for 2020: How Connected Health Can Help Transform Tomorrow’s Healthcare System
Dr Joseph Kvedar, Director, Center for Connected Health, Partners Healthcare
The concept of “connected health” extends healthcare beyond the traditional confines of hospitals and doctors’ offices, bringing healthcare to our everyday surroundings. The availability of technology in the home, our aging population and the increase of patients with chronic diseases are some of the factors fueling increased interest and growth in connected health. By leveraging information technology – cell phones, computers, networked devices and simple remote health monitoring tools – connected health is helping providers and patients manage chronic conditions, maintain health and wellness, and improve adherence, engagement and clinical outcomes.
