Many technology companies are focused on self-management when it comes to better health but have little recognition of the role of professional and family caregivers. I would like to discussions about technology will affect care where an entire "care team" beyond the patient and physician is involved (from therapists to a daughter in law caregiver to a pharmacist)
Healthcare technology too often operates at the highly abstract level of public health when it should be focus on patient experience and how healthcare professionals make clinical decisions.
Sarah Adult Day Services Inc. (http://sarahcare.com) is a comprehensive provider of senior care solutions to allow seniors to age well, live at home, and remain with their families. My focus currently is on an IoT monitoring solution to integrate care across multiple environments and healthcare specialities.
I am looking for a deeper understanding of the available technologies -- their capabilities, how they work, etc. and to learn from others who are dealing with or have dealt with the same challenges that I am struggling with in my work.
