What you think is the #1 challenge in healthcare today? What medical technology can help to meet those challenges?
With the current raging debate about the American healthcare system, we are hearing conflicting, sometimes contentious, and frequently emotional viewpoints. Our healthcare system is complex and there are now many competing special interest groups engaged in the debate. While there are predictions that there will be legislation passed, there are also indications that it may not be the comprehensive healthcare reform that was envisioned. Perhaps we will have “insurance reform” but what may be lost is the goal of accessible, affordable, care for all Americans. Additionally, the need to achieve better healthcare outcomes for individuals and populations, while reducing cost will remain a huge challenge.
The rapidly expanding aging population and concurrent rise in chronic illness are making meeting this challenge ever more urgent. Listen to the opinion one expert, Anand K. Iyer, PhD, as he describes what he see as the number one challenge in healthcare today and a medical technology approach that he believes meets that challenge. In his interview and presentation, he describes how low-tech, wireless technology can reduce healthcare cost and improve outcomes in diabetes. Similar outcomes can be realized for other chronic conditions as well.
