The New England Healthcare Institute recently published a major research piece that calculated this cost at over $290 billion for the U.S. alone. In all likelihood, the worldwide opportunity approaches one trillion dollars.

  7. 7. Contributors to the Gap Patients forget to take their drugs Patients fail to complete rehabilitation Patients show up for surgery or other critical care procedures without proper preparation Historically the health care system has been built around services rather than outcomes 7
  8. 8. mHealth Solutions Can HelpMobile devices have become pervasive, and they allow patients to take their care plans with them. 72% of physicians use smart phones, tablets or other mobile devices. Over 5 billion people now use mobile devices. Integrate into life of patient Integrate with physician systems  Personalized care plans  EMR integration connects mobile health  Track behaviors via patient input or data to back end systems (EMR, PHR, etc.) through remote sensors  Web based interfaces and dashboards  Perform assessments, deliver education, set alerts and  Social media integration thresholds, establish goals and  Provide health analytics incentives & more “Listen” to patient  Personalize care  Monitor and respond to abnormal events  Send reminders  Deliver customized patient education 8
  9. 9. Conclusions Closing the Patient Engagement Gap can save more money than our global community spends on cardiac care and three times as much as we spend on cancer. This one trillion dollar (globally) upside represents the biggest opportunity for mHealth solutions to impact the cost and effectiveness of care. The key is to quickly move beyond simple consumer grade “reminder” applications and deliver a product that entices the patient into changing their behavior. 9
